Kunal Khemu shines in Malang (Loco), a revenge drama lined with cheesy romance and philosophy that takes itself far too seriously for its own mistakes, one of which is the terrible performance of Disha Patani and an overall loose screenplay. TN.
'Malang' is not unwatchable. In fact, it's thrilling and engaging. But the shots of Goa can't promise a compelling narrative. The first half is promising but less twisty. The second half makes up, springing twists and turns every six to seven minutes. The casting is very good. But little of that matters when the leads have no charm together. The film is one of the most passionless in the filmography of Mohit Suri- whose slick craft is bogged down by heavy-handed scripts.
