Advait played by Aditya Roy Kapur and Sara played by Disha Patani meets each other in Goa. The young and attractive adults are in search of freedom and adventure before they start dumping bodies. Oh and by the way, these bodies are in amazing shape and Vikas Sivaraman’s camera has done magic with every curve, bicep and even the scenic beauty of Goa.
However, the film couldn’t do well for Goa tourism. Malng world is dark and twisted with unchecked usage of drugs, killings and a large corrupt police force. Gives a slight anti-Dil Chahta Hai vibes, doesn’t it?
Meanwhile, Advait and Sara live their lives till the body count increases rapidly. The responsibility to find the killer befalls Agashe, portrayed by Anil Kapoor who does things his way and have no chill when it comes to the rules. He even disgraces Michael, (Kunal Khemu) who is a righteous officer and likes to go by the books of law.
The twists in this film are either predictable or far-fetched. The film is dependent on the star cast to perform well. Aditya showing off his chest often which does not want to stay constrained within a shirt. Disha Patani flaunts her gorgeous toned body and Kunal Khemu too has interesting moments that are shown with his family. However, it is Anil Kapoor who has the most fun, always on the edge and efficiently revealing his personal pain wherever required.
Malang is too long a story for 2 hours and 15. We’d like to go with 3 upon 5 rankings.
