Ek Villain Returns Movie Review :
Aarvi (Tara Sutaria) is a young singer who aspires to fame and stardom in addition to being attractive. Aarvi falls in love with Gautam Mehra (Arjun Kapoor), a wealthy, spoiled brat who aids in her success. But hold on, has he actually found love? A number of young girls who had one-sided relationships are being murdered simultaneously by an unidentified assailant who aspires to be the savior for broken-hearted boys.
Then there is Bhairav (John Abraham), a cab driver who develops feelings for Rasika (Disha Patani), a salesperson who works in a department store. The four protagonists’ storylines are linked with intriguing twists and schemes. So, it is now up to the spectator to choose who is the hero and who is the villain.
Mohit Suri is particularly interested in the idea of masculinity as well as themes of retribution and atonement. Even though some elements are highlighted a little too much, the director undoubtedly has a talent for creating realistic characters. He also does an excellent job of encircling his characters with exciting events. However, Ek Villain Returns does not allow for much complexity, so this notion is eventually wasted.
The tone veers off course. The film’s flaw is how it diverges between drama and melodrama. Teri Galliyan, one of the more intriguing songs from the original movie, is featured in the sequel but doesn’t quite have the same impact. The remaining tracks are not even worthy of a mention. The phrase “Main hero hoon teri kahaani ka” or “tu hero toh main villain” is another example. The games of “main hero, tu villain” and “tu villain, main hero” are repeatedly played by the four leads.
The movie’s twists are also either foreshadowed or ridiculous.
The cast relies on them to deliver what they do best. Abraham is given numerous chances to flex his muscular abs while flashing a chest that defies containment by clothing. Sutaria proudly displays her flawlessly toned physique. While Kapoor has a few fascinating moments, he never quite transcends the limitations of the role. Disha does nothing but keeps laughing in the entire film.
Ek Villain Returns Verdict:
Ek Villain Returns is only 2 hours and 8 minutes long. However, the silliness and ridiculousness of the plot simply made the audience in the theater so bored that many of them didn’t even wait for the conclusion of the final scene before leaving.
