Verdict: The film kicks off well with decent performances by Riteish and Sidharth. However, it’s the inconsistent script and Shraddha Kapoor's annoying acts that prove to be the real villains for this overly hyped thriller. An...more

Plot: Guru is a quiet, tough and ruthless boy, working for a politician, Prahlad. A dark past refuses to let Guru sleep at night until he meets a girl, Aisha. He falls in love with her, his life changes and he convinces Aisha to get married to him. Guru even quits his job and moves from Goa to Mumbai to make a new beginning with Aisha. Just when things seem perfect, she falls prey to an attack. Devastated, Guru starts hunting the miscreant and is shocked to learn of his seemingly innocuous and simple identity. Something is amiss and Guru is unable to place a finger on the precise problem. Who is the real assailant? Does Guru succeed in getting even with the assailant?

Ek Villain Review - Not enough to have just a villianJun 27, 2014NewsRiteish Deshmukh playing a henpecked husband gone mad tells his victims before he kills them, “Fikar mat karo madam, aapko iske baad shikayat ka mauka nahi milega.” Which is all very good for the victims but what about us? Kya hume shikayat ka mauka milega?   -about the inconsistencies in the script? -About the Police guy’s weird behavior?  -About Remo being cast as some kind of Don? -About Shradha Kapoor’s irritatingly cheerful about to-die character who likes to ‘fly with butterflies’ and ‘save a life’ and ‘get two lovers to meet’ etc? (or maybe I am just too old to find this kind of thing cute) -about the way a dead man can be brought back to life?   So there are two stories here, which come together due to an incredible set of coincidences. One story is that of a rowdy called Guru who kills people wantonly to please his boss Ceaser (Remo!). He gets saved by the terminally ill irritating girl Ayesha, and they start living happily ever after.  In another part of Mumbai meanwhile, Rakesh, a middle class quiet Maharshtrian man, is getting nagged incessantly by his wife. This makes him hate and kill any woman who he sees complaining about anything-from his inefficiency at work to a rant at him about the bad condition of the roads. It sets off his wife’s nagging in his head and he hunts them down and kills them. Our heroine gets on his wrong side gets killed and then of course Guru has to avenge Ayesha’s death and the police have their own angle and everything becomes jumbled till it ends surprisingly neatly.   The movie starts fantastically with a really scary shot. What goes wrong is the plot, which tries to blend two stories into one. Guru and Ayesha’s romance deserved a maximum of half an hour if the movie’s ambition was to be a thriller, (But then, you would need Shradha Kapoor in a guest appearance). Or the murderer needed 15 minutes of killing if the story wanted to be about a grieving husband’s revenge. (But then Riteish would be in a guest appearance). The film cannot handle the complexity of both these situations and fails to fuse the two together to come up with something hard hitting. Plus, the random police angle and the don angle confuse matters and the Prachi Desai item number ( which is the sobbiest one ever. Perhaps it will start a new trend -The Weeping Item girl with a heaving bosom) wastes time and bores you.   Sidharth Malhotra as Guru is brooding and intense. Riteish as a meek guy turned serial killer does a great job. At the least, it helps to erase the memory of him as a dog in Hamshakals.  Shradha Kapoor looks surprisingly strong for a terminally ill person. Her character’s personality was irritating and so I found I couldn’t take much of her at all. But she is nice to look at which is a consolation.   The movie is well paced, short and the action scenes are well done which make it interesting to watch in a broad sense. A tighter script would have made it much better. OK for aone time watch, aminly for Riteish, if you are not fussed about the logical inconsistencies in the story.Smita Vyas Kumar Ek Villain Review - Not enough to have just a villian Jun 27, 2014

-about the way a dead man can be brought back to life?
