Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Fahadh Faasil as Sulaiman has outdone all of his previous works. He is so brilliant in his acting that you would just look at him for around 3 hours and still you want him more. Other character artists also supported him very well. Mahesh Narayanan hold on this film was strong from start to end. There wasn’t any loophole or flaw I find in this film. It is no less than a masterpiece film that can only be watched in theaters not on OTT. I am so amazed with its story and its intricate characters. The director did a great job for making such wonderful movie. The production value was good and the 80 and 90s era were aptly shown. This film was high on emotions and you can easily connect with it. There were many scenes that will shock you in this film. Especially, when someone throws firebowl and killed a jail prisoner while entering in the jail was a shocker for me. It’s one of those films that will stay with you for long.
Malik movie has been directed, written and edited by Mahesh Narayanan. It has been produced by Anto Joseph. The cinematography work has been done by Sanu Varghese and the music work handled by Sushin Shyam.
Malik movie budget is reportedly around 27 crores plus. It is one of the costliest Malayalam films in recent years.
Altogether, Malik is one of the best Indian films released in 2021. This is an outright big film in every possible way.
Last word: Watch it for Fahadh Faasil and its brilliant story.
