You know if you are watching a good cinema when the audience is sitting even after the film has ended, expecting for more. This is what Mohit Suri's Malang has witnessed across the cinemas. Although the trailer of the film was a mediocre one giving away much of the film's storyline, however the film has quite many surprises to be added along the line. Aditya Roy Kapur, Anil Kapoor and Disha Patani portrayed their characters with a hint of reality whereas Kunal Khemu and Elli Avram came in as noticeable elements with the film's storyline.
The film set on the premises of Goa's drug and hippie culture would however, not be doing a justified job to the State's tourism, though it showcased the real and more uglier side of Goa. The suspense and thriller story running along the lines of action packed drama is an engrossing element in the film. Also, the movie's storyline focuses on millennial culture, adding a hint of family values are also not forgotten in the film. The good cop and bad cop theme went well with Anil Kapoor and Kunal Khemu's characters, especially during the climax when the roles are reversed and Kunal's acting skills are displayed well on the camera.
The music also justified the drama line. Music directors like Azim Azhar, Ankit Tiwari and Mithoon have understood the film's concept and aligned the music well with the theme. Ved Sharma has given the music and lended his voice to the title track which is a loopworthy track and has a certain ring to it. Also the cinematography of Malang deserves a special applause as none of the scenes looked like poorly edited ones or looked fake on the screen.
Not that the film is promoting any kind of drug usage but it shows a different side to the Goan culture of parties and raves. It is the side that only few dare to bring on screen and Mohit Suri did it. Aditya Roy Kapur's on screen depiction of a drug or alcohol addict again is well on point and Disha Patani also compliments the storyline. In all, IMDb rating for the film is 6.5/10 but after a long time we feel that Malang is a film that does justice with all things around and deserves a perfect 10/10 from The Show Time.
