Ek Villain- A tragic love story of a villain!
Every story has a villain, but this one is a is a little different, as it is a tragic love story of a villain.
Inspired by the South Korean movie 'I Saw The Devil', director Mohit Suri has tried his best to give Indian cinema a push, but turned down the action for Indian audience.
The story revolves around three characters - Guru, a bad boy with a good heart played by Sidharth Malhotra, is a goon working under a local don. Aisha (Shraddha Kapoor), a happy go lucky chirpy girl, who is fighting her own battle with a disease and wants to make as many people happy as she can! And, Rakesh (Ritesh Deshmukh), a psychic serial killer seriously dented on account of being continually nagged by his wife (Aamna Sharif).
The real twist comes when Rakesh kills Guru's pregnant wife Aisha and the revenge that follows keeps the suspense alive.
Though the film has many interesting twists and turns, it fails to create the much required interest.
Yes, Suri has managed to get the three actors to perform out of their comfort zones.
The music by Ankit, Mithoon and the Soch Band is indeed the soul of the film and flows well with its mood.
Though Mohit knows his craft well and has tried to do something interesting, the expected magic seems to be missing from the plot.
