Directed by Mohit Suri, Malang is clashing with Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Shikara. Film Shikara, which is a mid-range film, has crashed at the box office. Shikara has earned 5 crore (approx).
With Malang, Kapur has reunited with Aashiqui 2-famed director after seven years. Film analyst Taran Adrash has given 2 stars to Malang and has called it 'Disappointing'. Adarsh wrote, "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".
Malang is a story of an introvert guy Advait (Aditya) who falls in love with Sara (Disha) in Goa. However, things take a tragic turn and he becomes a killer. Anil Kapoor is seen in the role of Inspector Anjaney Agashe in the film. Whereas, Kunal Kemmu plays a law-abiding police officer.
