After the debacle of his last film Half Girlfriend, Mohit Suri once again tries his hand at an action thriller and does a fantastic job. This dark revenge thriller didn’t reveal much in its trailer, something which every film in this genre should aspire to achieve. The film is filled with unexpected twists and turns and keeps you thoroughly engaged with unbelievable disclosures.
Everyone in the film has done a tremendous job in understanding the pitch of the story and what their character demands. Disha Patani, though not presented with a challenging role, manages to exhibit a convincing performance and even manifests great emotions in certain scenes. Kunal Khemu is undoubtedly the surprise factor in the film, with only bits of him provided in the trailer, and turns out to be the most astonishing aspect of the film. He truly puts his best foot forward and presents a great range of performance.
When it comes to performances, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, hands down, has the most impactful presence on screen. Anil Kapoor shines in the film and gets under the skin of the character seamlessly, whereas Aditya, despite his previous failures, shows immense emotions and justifies his character completely. He is one such actor in the industry whose acting capabilities were never measured by his poor choices in films, and he doesn’t disappoint this time.
The most prominent feature of the film is its screenplay. Aniruddha Guha has very smoothly and effortlessly portrayed the transition in the timeline, an art which can be extremely tricky if not taken care of with precision. While watching the film, you don’t feel disconnected to the storyline at any moment, and that is despite its non chronological order that the director chooses to play with. Malang is composed of everything that a good thriller needs and is definitely worth a watch.
