Malang Reviews (Top Critics)

One Word Review... Malang: DISAPPOINTING. Mohit Suri misses the bus this time... #Malang works in patches, but its writing plays spoilsport, fails to grab your attention in entirety... Suspense doesn't create the desired impact either.

Girls like Aditya Roy Kapur. Boys like Disha Patani. In Malang, the sum total of the clothes they wear and then quickly take off will barely cover your double bed. If yours is a single bed, then it's a different matter. You'll have some spare thingies to hold up and wonder what exactly to use it for.

Revolving around the life of four pretty-much grey characters, the story involves a whole lot of revenge burdened with innumerable unintentionally funny 'drug warnings'. Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) - a bagpack tripper, Sara (Disha Patani) - in search of her Ikigai away from the Tigers, Michael (Kunal Kemmu) & Agashe (Anil Kapoor) - two shady officers cross each other's path in Goa.

MALANG is the story of love and revenge. Two tracks run simultaneously in the film. The flashback track shows Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur), with a disturbing family history, going to Goa for some fun. Here he bumps into Sara (Disha Patani) who has come to Goa from abroad to conquer her fears. Over drugs and running away from the police, they fall for each other.

When the trailer of Mohit Suri's Malang came out, it gave an indication that this could be a twisted thriller where every character has his own demonic intentions and idiosyncrasy. The part that also attracted a lot of memes was the one where every single actor reveals why he kills people.

Two young people, Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Sara (Disha Patani) bump into each other at a rave party in Goa and sparks fly. Both are unattached, don't have any family constraints and have loads of money. Both want to live in the moment, do drugs, indulge in adventure sports and have a bit of free sex as well.

The film revolves around a dramatic event in the lives of Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Sara (Disha Patani), which has them crossing paths with two police officers - Anjaney Agashe (Anil Kapoor) and Michael Rodrigues (Kunal Kemmu), and the impact they have on each other's future.

Malang is a Mohit Suri joint through and through. It has a young and cute couple who are in love with the idea of being in love, the escape from social strictures and reality in the form of travel (Goa is the destination this time), trouble in paradise caused by malevolent elements, a bunch of great tunes, and the deep shallowness that is a hallmark of Suri's star-crossed romances.

From the opening scene of Malang, you know director Mohit Suri's intention: to create a larger-than-life hero out of his leading man. As a camera tracks around the back of a prison inmate, he systematically and without effort pummels his way through repeated attacks by other prisoners.

A single take shot inside the prison zooms in on a burly guy's back as he pummels one inmate after another until it's time to reveal the face. It's Aditya Roy Kapur sporting a brand-new beard and body trying to fit into shoes Suniel Shetty wore out nearly three decades ago.

The Indian Express
By Shubhra Gupta (1.5/5)

Here's a film which is a perfect example of how Bollywood struggles with creating a plot in which every single thread counts. Malang kicks in only after the interval, and then it becomes the film it should have been from the get-go, rapidly deploying damaged cops, emasculated men with curdled sexuality, and bad women on the prowl.

In Malang, it's Goa where drugs, alcohol and blood flow in abundance. Two strangers meet and decide to go for the ultimate thrills of life only to realise that it may not take them anywhere. But who cares till it looks good on big screen. Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Sara (Disha Patani) meet in Goa and begin to live life the way they want, which simply means beaches, bikes and a lot of steam.

A free willing Sara (Disha Patani) meets Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) in Goa. A sparklingly intimate romantic adventure begins and during one of their escapades an incident takes place that changes their lives forever. The shocking incident introduces two police officers - Anjaney Agashe (Anil Kapoor) and Michael Rodrigues (Kunal Kemmu).

No evidence, no witness, no statement, case closed. That is the verdict crime branch officer Anjaney Agashe (Anil Kapoor) pronounces in the final scene of Mohit Suri's Malang, a thriller set in Goa, after a perfect act of vengeance has left no telltale clues.

Just like the non-linear Malang, I don't know where to start its review. Its plot, narrative, characters, climax and multitude of twists and turns are a heady mix and honestly, too much to take at one go. Malang begins with a high voltage fight sequence and soon Aditya Roy Kapur goes on a killing spree; then a flashback as we are familiarized with Aditya and Disha Patani's love story; cut to the present day where he's again killing cops; and wham, we are back in the past.
