Ek Villain Returns Review: Story, Performances & Analysis 

Gautam (Arjun Kapoor) is a rich guy who loves taking revenge and winning. He entered his ex-girlfriend’s wedding & started hitting people around him until his ex-girlfriend came & stops him saying she still loves him & they kissed in front of the groom. He told the groom to marry her as he is convinced now that she still loves him. This is what Gautam calls winning, you may have a different opinion here but this is how Mohit Suri and Aseem Arora prepared the script.

Gautam falls for Aarvi (Sutaria) who loves singing but did not get the opportunity due to a popular singer Qiran(Elena Roxana Maria Fernandes) who has good bonding with Gautam. Aarvi is jealous of her and also bothered about why there is a Q in Qiran. This is where Gautam thought an opportunity lies to impress Aarvi, how? He took the yellow mask and went on to scare Qiran so that she leaves the place and Aarvi performs there.

Bhairav (Abraham) is a cab driver who loves Rasika (Disha Patani), a salesgirl at an exclusive shop but he did not dare to tell her. After meeting a few times with Bhairav they became friends. The day when Bhairav went to propose Rasika saw her with another guy in an intimate moment. He could not handle the rejection by Rasika and decided to become a Villain instead of Devdas.

Ritesh Deshmukh’s cameo is better than the whole painful drama. Yes, it is what I feel after watching director Mohit Suri’s new psychological thriller Ek Villain Returns.

I have two questions in my mind which I have shared here.

Were the writers given a target of using the term “Villain” and “Ek villain” a certain number of times throughout the script? Or was this to remind us that we are actually watching the sequel of Ek Villain?

You might be wondering the reason for asking these questions. Then let me tell you that these are the two terms that have been used multiple times and frequently throughout the movie.

The four talented actors like Arjun Kapoor, John Abraham, Tara Sutaria, and Disha Patani were a complete waste just because of failing to give more attention to the script. If you forget the reprise version of Galliyan, the music was not up to the mark rather we can easily say this one is the worst album of a Mohit Suri film.

Quite surprising to see such a movie coming from a director who has delivered movies like Zeher, Kalyug, Murder 2, Ek Villain, Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Malang, etc. 

Another funny part is that almost everyone was using the yellow mask which we found Riteish Deshmukh using in 'Ek villain' to keep his dark identity a secret. The forgetful existence of police officers like J.D.Chakravarthy, and Shaad Randhawa made things even worse.

Final Words

The back-to-back box office failures of big-budget Bollywood movies like Shamshera, Rashtrakavach Om, and now Ek Villain Returns continue, and some movies with good script are the need of the hour.

Which is a better movie Ek Villain or Ek villain returns?

So, if you want a comparison here I will say 'Ek Villain Returns' stands nowhere near to Siddharth Malhotra-Riteish Deshmukh-Shraddha Kapoor starrer 'Ek Villain'.
