Movie Review: Ek Villain

Cast: Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Aamna Sharif

Director: Mohit Suri

Ek villan is loosely based on a Korean movie. The film stars Sidharth Malhotra in his third outing along with Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh. Siddharth plays guru, an angry young man who is little devilish but he looks killer. The role suits him but I wish his role was as long as Riteish’s. Riteish plays the role of a common man who is frustrated with life and is on rampage by killing every one who makes him feel that he is nobody. Shraddha Kapoor looks cute but the role is somehow over starched.

The film is missing soul. The story unfolds in parts which might just test your patience. The film consists of moments when you feel it’s going to end now; but another twist keeps you thinking. Problem remains the pacing of the film. It just keep repeating and there is no suspense despite being a thriller.

The second half promises to be fun but it lacks that soul which both actors and director try to get back but still Ek Villain remains average throughout. The story is average and the movie is starched too much, editing is bad screenplay in first half is very loose. It’s a good opportunity lost and the thing that is too flat in the movie are its dialogues, with Mohit Suri there is a certain level of dialogue which you except, specially being a thriller. But here the dialogues are also very poor you will not be able to cheer Siddharth or Riteish because of their dialogues.

What is good?

Direction, Performance, Music

What is bad?

Story, Editing, Screenplay


Average story and direction, good music and performances with bad editing, screenplay and dialogues make Ek Villain an average one time watch movie. All in all Ek Villain offers less than its trailer. I am going with 3 bits out of 5 for Ek Villain. The movie belongs to Siddharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh.
