With Malang, Aditya Roy Kapur has tied up with the Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain Director Mohit Suri after 7 years. According to Taran Adarsh, Malang is a 'disappointment' and he gave it a rating of two stars. "Mohit Suri misses the bus this time... Malang works in patches, but its writing plays spoilsport, fails to grab your attention in entirety... Suspense doesn't create the desired impact either", Adarsh tweeted.
Malang is the story of two youngsters-Advait and Sara, played by Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani, respectively, whose lives take a dramatic turn. Apart from Kapur and Patani, this film features Anil Kapoor, Kunal Khemu, Amruta Khanvilkar, Shaad Randhawa and Elli Avram in significant roles.
