The eagerly awaited subjective suspense film “Ek Villain Returns” hit cinemas today. John Abraham, Disha Patani, Arjun Kapoor and Tara Sutaria play the key parts in the movie, which is helmed by Mohit Suri. Despite having an entirely unique plot from the 2014 film Ek Villain, the movie is promoted as a mystical counterpart to that one.Fans have been extremely enthusiastic about the movie, and many moviegoers were able to see the inaugural screenings at the beginning itself. Soon after, they started tweeting about the movie. The majority of them described the movie as “nail-biting,” adding that it keeps viewers “hooked on every minute.” Fans have given a very positive response to the movie and the plot.
Ek Villain Returns kicks in only after the interval, and then it becomes the film it should have been from the beginning. The pace of first half is bit low than the second and the plot before intermission tried hard to get the audience invested into the characters who say dialogues which are straight out of ’80s Bollywood and still it did not work efficiently. The most attractive part is the makers have left upon the audience to choose the villian and hero according to them.
Suri is particularly interested in the idea of masculinity as well as themes of retribution and atonement. Even though some elements are highlighted a little too much, the director undoubtedly has a talent for creating realistic characters. He also does an excellent job of encircling his characters with exciting events. However, Ek Villain Returns does not allow for much complexity and still it gives intruiging vibes.
The track from the movie is something which has kept the pace of excitment since the beginning and the trailer which was full of mystery and suspense has actually been a catalyst for increasing fans’ excitement.
