A Mangesh Hadawale directorial, Malaal is set against the backdrop of Mumbai’s Chawls, that captures pure emotions and rustic settings. Malaal has Meezaan and Sharmin Segal as the lead couple and will hit the screens today nationwide. We will tell 4 reasons why you shouldn’t miss this entertainer.
It happens very less that Sanjay Leela Bhansali shows his faith in young budding actors and launches them in his production. Sharmin, the female lead, is his niece. After giving many stars the biggest hits of their careers, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has introduced Meezaan (Jaaved Jaaferi’s son) and Sharmin Segal (late filmmaker Mohan Segal’s granddaughter) in Malaal.
With movies like Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela (2013), Bajirao Mastani (2015) and Padmaavat (2018) in the past, Bhansali has proven himself to be a maverick composer. He repeated his mettle again with Malaal. All this combined with the expertise of music heavyweight: T-Series, the music of Malaal guarantees to transport you to a different world.
It has a big backbone support of great performances delivered by a talented supporting cast of actors. Bhansali worked closely with Mangesh on the script until they nailed a narrative that would keep audiences hooked on to the screens.
While the Padma Shri recipient Bhansali has collaborated with Bhushan Kumar on the music in the past too for some of his previous blockbusters, they are now joining hands as producers for Malaal.
Mahaveer Jain, who has backed some promising films, vouches for this passion project, too, as they all bring in their expertise to the film as a team. More interestingly, unlike the grandeur that Bhansali brings to the big screen, Mangesh’s strength lies in the heartland and in telling simple and pure stories.
Malaal is a joint production venture of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain, and Krishan Kumar and the film is releasing today.
