Ek Villain Review

The movie hitting this Friday is Ek Villain, starring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Aamna Sharif, Remo Ferandes, etc. and is directed by Mohit Suri. Interestingly, you can find the director taking a reverse narration, which seems to be working in the favour of this movie. The sart of the movie is a catastrophe engineered by a local Goa gangster called Guru, which he has done for the cute girl Shraddha Kapoor. Then you see a bad guy turning good for the girl, however, this time the chemistry between the two seems to be very much different than this typical script. You have certain unusual twist and turns, which make the script fresh and unique as compared to the earlier ones. The dialogues between the two seem very much different and have been crafted in the wittiest ways by Milap Zaveri.

One interesting thing about the script is that you can find both the past and present running together in a parallel way. Both go together without even disturbing each other now that’s the uniqueness of the script, which you may fail to find with the earlier movies. Also, you may find some incredible kind of climax wherein the bad turned good guy simply wants to die a hero life especially before her sweetheart who is seen yelling that she loves him. Ek Villain is all about portraying the negative character in a positive fashion while combating with a psychopath played brilliantly by Riteish Deshmukh. The fight at the end is full of drama, which is really difficult for you to avoid getting overwhelmed.

As far as performances are concerned, you can really find the trio – Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish doing incredible roles. If you talk about Riteish who is more known for his comic timing seems to embark in a new look and avatar. He has played the negative character for the first time simply to try out something new, which he has in many ways is successful in doing so. Both Kapoor and Malhotra seems to be very good in playing their roles, hence you can excpect accolades coming from different corners of B Town and the critics. You would find Sidharth in a new look with brooding and painful kind of anger in his eyes, while Riteish is incredible in baffling his brilliance the best.

The plot of the movie seems to be very much different and thrilling thanks to loads of excitement being interwoven in the script. And if you listen to the crew of Ek Villain, it is one of the movies, which has no hero in it but all of them seen in the lead characters are villains. The thrill event and incredible performances of the stars in the movie would really propel the audience to watch Ek Villain. Perhaps this factor or uniqueness was somehow sensed by the audience, which will make a good launch pad for the movie. Let’s see what goes the next day when the film finally hits the theatre.
