What’s Malang – Unleash the Madness About:
Advait (Aditya Roy Kapur) meets Sara (Disha Patani) during his trip to Goa. It’s an instant attraction between the two who go about living wild and free. Right from jumping out of planes, diving into the oceans, and doing drugs, these two live the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara life. Just when they think that life can’t get any better, a twist in the story sends everything spiraling out of control. Five years later, we see Advait transformed from an introvert who loved adventure to a ripped man seeking revenge. On Christmas Eve, Advait makes a call to Anjaney Agashe (Anil Kapoor), a drunk and rogue cop to inform him that yeh raat bohot lambi hone wali hai as there are going to be some murders. This phone call sends Agashe and Michael Rodriguez (Kunal Kemmu), an upright cop on a cat and mouse chase.
Aditya Roy Kapur steals the show in Malang – Unleash the Madness with both the introvert and bad boy versions of himself. His screen presence draws you in and keeps you wanting for more. Advait and Sara’s chemistry gives you the feels and their time of adventuring makes you feel like going on an adrenaline-filled vacation. Kunal Khemu plays out his character brilliantly.

Anil Kapoor is in his element and his character fits right into his comfort zone. Each character has absorbing and intriguing backstories that connect to the present with surprising twists and turns.
