hen you thought you’d seen the mother of all crime movies, Mohit Suri releases Malang: Unleash The Madness, in which Anil Kapoor is the good cop and the bad cop, and he’s a rock star who plays both to perfection. The lead actors are Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani and they are as beautiful as the sunny skies, blue sea and golden beaches of Goa, where this romantic action thriller is so astonishingly depicted. But one way or another, you’ll keep waiting for Anil, in the role of Inspector Anjaney Agashe, to return to the screen. He snorts cocaine in the toilets, then goes out and meets drug dealers in the bars of Goa. Talk about a cop with attitude, loot and a thirst for blood.
It’s a beautiful story of sweet revenge and one can’t help but think that Mohit wants to reintroduce the thrill and suspense of his Murder 2 and the music and romance of his Aashiqui 2 in Malang: Unleash the Madness. The ingredients are all there. The murders are numerous, with a touch of extra suspense, and the romance between Disha and Aditya is hot, with amazing kiss sequences that add to the warmth. There are beautiful songs throughout the film and the theme song is played several times, but they are not intrusive and allow you to focus on the romance and the action. And of that, there are many. The scene from the rave party in Goa, where our main couple blends so naturally, is also really shown.
Among the performances, Disha has long legs and a beautiful sunny body with an innocent and confident face, while Aditya, who for once gets a grainy action role, with tousled hair and an unshaved look, is perfect as her love interest. It’s the first half of the film, when it’s beach tramps who stay in a hippie commune without caring about the world, who take drugs, smoke and drink (the legal warning never leaves the screen), who jump from party to party, confront their fears and live their dreams until everything goes horribly wrong.
Watch Disha and Aditya have a detailed conversation here :
This revenge is a dish that is eaten cold and comes out deliciously in the plot five years later. And there’s a deadly twist in the story at the end, but in a way you’d expect it because everyone loves a lover and you know that there are still some knots to be tied in the story of the writer Aseem Arora. But between the beginning and the end, there is also Anil and Kunal Kemmu as another bad apple of the Goa police. Here we have another extremely talented performer whose last two films have not highlighted the fabulous work he is capable of giving. Anil and Kunal are so bad that they are good.
