Ek Villain is cheerful watch but with numerous loopholes.
28 June 2014 | by Shivam_MurariSee all my reviews

Ek Villain one of the anticipated movies of the year, sold out well on Day 1 due to its music and killer trailer. Yes, the trailer looked promising with some serious suspense hidden within, true, but the movie hardly has any suspense. Most of it is predictable at a mile. However, Mohit Suri never said the movie was a suspense thriller. He maintained right from the beginning that the movie is a 'romantic thriller', so coming down to that, Ek Villain is a movie of its KIND!

This movie could have been an out and out entertainment had the script not had some serious loopholes. The writer took quite a few things for granted and also attempted to confuse the audience at places where he couldn't convince them, and it doesn't really work. The movie loses its gripping effect at more than countable places, but the super hit songs come up to bring the mood back.

The narration technique is fantastic. The way romance has been infused in the dark thriller is fabulous. The messages sent out by the movie are fantastic and well dealt with.It has been brought to my attention that it is a rip off of a Korean movie, but given that I haven't seen it, to me all of it came good as new.

Mohit Suri's direction is not as good as it has been in the past, but still sufficing. Shraddha Kapoor is the cheerful part of the film. Even though her '200 pages of dialogue' could be irritating at times,her expressions and her mere presence is enticing. Sidharth Malhotra has come a light years ahead of his last two performances. Yes, his acting wasn't perfect, but it was a daring act and he certainly did carry it well enough, given that it was his third movie. Riteish Deshmukh is the real hero in terms of acting. Playing a role inspired by Joker of Batman the Dark Knight, he shows poise and perfection!

Overall, this movie is definitely worth catching despite being a galore of flaws, given the fact that Mohit Suri ensures his weak plot is supplemented in one way or the other. There is hardly any boring moment in the movie. I'm going with a generous seven-out-of-ten for this flick. Extra marks for Riteish and music.
