Mohit Suri is one director who very well knows to merge romance with thriller. We have seen that in his movies like Zeher, Awarapan, Murder 2, and Ek Villain. His last two releases, Hamari Adhuri Kahani and Half Girlfriend, both were romantic films. But now, with Malang, the director returns to the genre of romantic-thriller.

Malang is about Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) who is out from jail after five years and is on a killing spree. Back-to-back he kills three police officers in one night. But why is he doing that? Is Sara (Disha Patani) the reason behind it? Well, watch the film to know that…

The story of the film is written by Aseem Arrora and the screenplay is written by Aniruddha Guha. While the story is interesting, the screenplay keeps us hooked to the screens. Though you might feel that the first half could have been better, keep patience and wait for the second half as you will be in for a super thrilling ride.

While the story and screenplay are good, Mohit Suri’s narration is also up to the mark. If the screenplay in the first half falters a bit, it is Suri’s narration style that saves the movie. Also, you might predict the climax of the film, but the way it has been narrated, it turns out to be interesting.

Talking about actors, Aditya Roy Kapur is good in his part and impresses us with performance. Disha Patani has a very good role to play and she does justice to the character of Sara. Thankfully, this time she has a big role. Anil Kapoor is outstanding as usual. Elli AvrRam also delivers a good performance.

But, there’s one actor who steals the show and stands out in the whole cast. We are talking about Kunal Kemmu. He is simply fantastic in the film. This is clearly his career’s best performance and we won’t be surprised if he takes home the Best Villain trophies for his performance in the film.

Coming to music, songs are the soul of the film. You will be humming the title track while coming out of the theatres.

Overall, Malang is a good entertaining film. It is the perfect mixture of romance and thriller and has some amazing performances in it.
