Cast: Siddharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh; Director: Mohit Suri
India Today Rating: * * * *
"Filmmaker Mohit Suri’s latest film Ek Villain is inspired by the South Korean revenge film "I Saw the Devil", toned down to Indian taste. The storyline is about a serial killer who picks the wrong man’s fiancee to murder… The film has a lot of interesting portions but the plot is full of loopholes. Mohit Suri has managed one big thing and that’s getting some of the best performances out of all the three actors. Shraddha delivers a wonderful performance. Siddharth though too good looking to be the mean guy is out of his comfort zone and is convincing as the new-age, angry young man. Riteish as the disturbed serial killer is excellent! Even after a lot of flaws Ek Villain is a decent watch but it could have been much better!"
