A well crafted Class Emotional Thriller
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Villain is a movie which is very well crafted experimented and well produced movie Which never make u boor for even a second... Unnikrishnan did lots of homework for this movie... It's a movie which deserves a place in best thriller movie Indian cinema ever seen because there's no twist suspense then also its engaging ... B Unnikrishnan took 2 years to make this script... He needs a great applause and salute for this masterpiece. Outstanding visuals, mesmerizing BGM, marvelous direction. Movie wins 100% in class and emotional thriller genre. It's never a Mass Masala heroic content movie, If U expect it U will surely get disappointed but there's superb mass fight scenes which suits the situation.

Coming to acting Why Mohanlal is called complete actor without thinking much we can say he is no.1 actor of Indian cinema. Mass emotional scenes he did with ease The scene which he laugh and cries is too emotional to handle and we will say wow for that acting Hats of to him His eyes have so many meaning-full expressions... Amazing

Coming to Manju there's only one lady actress in Mtown This movie underlines it Hospital scenes Manju is outstanding. The feel and love between Manju and Ettan will haunt u after leaving theater and make u cry in many scenes. Vishal perfect casting did his role outstandingly. Vishals role will have special place in heart. Super social message in movie am not saying much because its to experience in theater.

Climax scenes are awesome And last scene is emotional with Ettans dialogue.

Each and every dialogues is so amazing and marvelous in movie most interesting is interaction between Ettan and Vishal.

Atlast Who is villain? U can decide !

After the Prithviraj Movie 'Memories", the movie which haunt me a lot and Sam Alex character it will be villain and Mathew Manjooran role ! After watching Villain, Mathew Manjooran Will definitely have a special emotional place in your heart !!!

Just Go For It...!!!
