Malik is here and the audiences aren’t complaining! The Malayalam movie which has had fans waiting for more than a year is finally here to watch and it hasn’t let us down. Malik was earlier slated to release in April 2020 before getting postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. While other Malayalam movies opted for a digital release, the makers of Malik maintained their stance that the movie is meant for a theatre viewing. But eventually, the makers realised how long the fans have had to wait and settled for an OTT release in July 2021 on Amazon Prime Video. From the looks of it, the movie has still caused quite the storm, especially on Twitter, with rave reactions pouring for Malik from all corners of the country. With this success, Fahadh Faasil’s good run of form on OTT continues.
Here are some of the many positive reactions that the Malayalam movie Malik has received on Twitter:

Like the sea is mix of tides & waves. #Malik is a mix of human emotions. The rise of Ali ikka, the bond of David & Ali, the politics, the betrayal of David and the end of Malik. Ocean of emotions.#FahadhFaasil , you’re gem 💎#MalikonPrime #Malikreview

Starring Fahadh Faasil and Nimisha Sajayan in the lead, Malik is about a rural man who rises to power by fighting political and police corruption in his village. Directed by Mahesh Narayanan, this crime-drama is said to have tones of Nayakan (1987) and The Godfather (1972). But the film’s plot is actually based on real-life incidents of land acquisition in coastal areas of Kerala.
Fahadh Faasil will next be seen as the antagonist in the Allu Arjun-starrer Pushpa and in the Malayalam survivor thriller Malayankunju.
