One time watch, but not as per expectations
28 June 2014 | by oneto-1See all my reviews

Ek Villain has outstanding songs but somewhere it lacks in story and direction! Movie concept is good but director tried to give more emphasis on love and romantic angle rather than suspense, ultimate result is neither Love Story nor Suspense! We like Psycho movies and the actor who plays "Psycho Killer" role, be it Shahrukh Khan or Anthony Perkins! Rietesh is not that great. This movie is a direct lift from Korean movie and you may feel cheated if you watch Korean movie first then this, villain in Korean movie has done rally good job, but Reitesh is not even close to him!

As I said earlier, without Suspense quotient director kills the movie, I feel unsatisfied because of that reason, the way they were showing movie promos I thought this movie is going to rock because of it's cruel suspense scenes, but it fails badly on on my expectations, it's a cheating!

Sharadha Kapoor is looking pretty and nicely carry forward Indian tradition of Playing Dumb and Kind-hearted at the same time! Siddharth is a rising star and will surely become a dependable torch bearer for Indian cinema, he is Handsome and can kill girls by his one look, top of that he can act! Having said that, I don't feel any chemistry between Sharadha and Sidharth, they don't look like lovers.

There is also Amana Sharief, we don't see her in promos, she is a beautiful doll and a reasonably good actress but sad to know her acting career is not shaping well, her beauty surely justify Ritesh Deshmukh's mad love towards her!

The way movie songs come and go is disappointing and irritating, song lyrics has nothing to do with the story-line, they have been inserted forcefully in the movie.

Well movie is still a hit irrespective of what I said above because everyone watch movies on all weekends no matter how good or bad movie is! Watch this movie if you have nothing to do else missing this movie is surely a time and money saver.

Songs are really good, I am still enjoying that!
