Three reasons to watch Fahadh Faasil’s Malik on Amazon Prime:
Amazon Prime’s Malik has everything – politics, crime, darkness and corruption. Mahesh Narayanan has written a solid script highlighting land acquisition issues and false hope given to the common people by the politicians and leaders. A lot of terrible leaders in the world have played politics by dividing people, mainly by religion. We also see that being highlighted in the film. It’s a daring cinema that needs to be watched by everyone.
Direction, Cinematography and Music
Mahesh Narayanan’s direction and Sanu Varghese’s cinematography together has exceptionally woven this engaging tale. Not even once did they try to dramatise or romanticise the underprivileged and the sufferings of people Malik movie. They’ve done an incredible job of creating an impact with those scenes, along with some twisted arcs. The camera work in the opening scene of 15 minutes will make you say Whoa! All of this perfectly blends with Sushin Shyam music creating a hard-hitting impact.
Fahadh Faasil and the star cast
Malik is Faasil’s fourth release after Pushpa, Irul and Joji. He has set the bar so high for himself that he breaks his past record of giving a phenomenal performance with every film. In his latest Amazon Prime movie, his bearded, Godfather-like personality wins you over. But the supporting cast also does a commendable job. One of the film’s strengths is its casting, and everyone delivers.
About being a part of the film, the actor told Indian Express, “Violence is just a bit of the story. The film is more about love, friendship and celebration. There are a lot of elements in the narrative. The film talks about the 30 years of a community’s history. It is packed with a lot of human emotions. I believe it is the kind of film that will have repeated viewings.”
