Ek Villain Returns Movie Story

Ek Villain Returns is a sequel to the hit 2014 movie Ek Villain. It is Romantic Action Thriller film written and directed by Mohit Suri. It is produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar under the banners Balaji Motion Pictures and T-Series The film stars John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patni and Tara Sutaria and is scheduled for theatrical release on 29 July 2022.

 The trailer of Ek Villain Returns looks quite interesting and is successful in getting the audience’s attention. It is more killer, quite literally, and deadlier than its predecessor. It is a sequel to Mohit Suri’s 2014 movie with a powerful and attention – grabbing star cast. It has the same classic touch as before. 

In 2014, Bollywood was having a slump in thriller movies and filmmakers were still in the transition from the romantic nostalgia of the 2000s . They were trying their hands at something new in the decade of 2010s. That is when Mohit Suri made a musical and thriller movie, with a difference at that time. He is now back with Ek Villain Returns, eight years after its prequel.

The trailer opens by taking us back to 2014, when Rakesh, played by Riteish Deshmukh, was going around killing women in order to feel powerful.  Eight years later, there’s a new villain in town, who claims himself to be the messiah of all one-sided lovers.

The new killer has killed around 18 girls, leaving no clue behind. The killer has a unique way of bringing justice to all men with unrequited love. Disha Patani is shown asking John whether she is his fear or love.

Then, there’s Arjun Kapoor, in love with Tara Sutaria. And singing a song with her. The trailer moves on to some high-octane action sequences between Abraham and Kapoor, where both were claiming to be the villains of each other’s stories. And that there are no heroes in the stories, anymore.

 Mohit Suri‘s thriller movie has all the ingredients of a successful movie shown in the trailer.   The trailer doesn’t clarify as who is the real villain. There are also 2 young, beautiful actresses: Tara Sutaria and Disha Patani. It seems as if they are playing a  negative role this time. The laughter and gestures they do in the trailer make you wish for more.  All in all, this is going to be an interesting watch.

The movie Ek Villain Returns does not retain the original cast. This is what makes it different from other sequels. While the first movie included Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, and Aamna Sharif, the sequel is a completely new package. Starring John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani, and Tara Sutaria, Ek Villain Returns is slated for a theatrical release on July 29, 2022.

At the trailer launch of the film, Arjun Kapoor revealed how he was initially offered Ek Villain as well, back in 2014. But he could not take up the project as he was working on Tevar, which was produced by his father Boney Kapoor. “That time I was doing my father’s film Tevar and I couldn’t do it. And this time, when he (Suri) came to me, I said it is destiny. It was meant to be that I am a part of this film. I decided to not let it go,” he said.

Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Bhushan Kumar, and Krishan Kumar, this is Disha Patani’s second collaboration with Mohit Suri after Malang. The movie has its screenplay penned by Mohit Suri and Aseem Arora. Vikas Sivaraman has wielded the camera for Ek Villain Returns. Aditya Roy Kapur was originally signed for the role portrayed by Arjun Kapoor, but later he stepped back.

To increase the anticipation among the audience,  the makers of the movie  ‘Ek Villain Returns’ released its first song titled Galliyan Returns which is a reboot version of the original Galliyan song from Ek Villain. The song is as melodious as its original version. 

Another song, titled ‘Dil’, perfectly showed the love story of the lead pairs along with the agony of love. 

The song ‘Maine Tera Naam Dil Rakh Diya’, featuring Arjun, Tara, John, and Disha shows Arjun and Tara to be in love whereas John Abraham can be seen shedding tears for his love Disha.

The songs are the highlight of the movie like its prequel. The songs are already a hit among the audiences. The internet has started comparing both movies. In the earlier movie, Riteish as Rakesh Mahadkar won the hearts of the audience being a serial killer and stepping in as a baddie for the first time. 

Similarly, in the sequel, as introduced in the trailer, the new villain targets women who didn’t reciprocate men’s feelings to become a messiah for jilted lovers. Comprising love, action, suspense, and murders – the action-thriller film is all set to give fans goosebumps on 29th July 2022.

Ek Villain Returns Movie Review

One of the eagerly awaited movies Ek Villan Returns, directed by Mohit Suri, felt flat and couldn’t connect with the audiences. The direction of the movie is not bad but the story and the way it has been portrayed by the actors is unconvincing. If played well, the movie would have turned out to be a treat to watch.

It seems that the dialogue-writer is fascinated by the word Villain so much so that every character of the movie is using this word time and again and that too unnecessarily. It made the audience irritable because most of the time, the dialogue didn’t create any impact. No genuine reason was given for the murders and the murderer couldn’t scare us.

The first half of the movie failed to make a connection with the audience. The second half picked up a bit but to no avail. Regarding the performances, Arjun Kapoor is a misfit in this character and his expressions are just the same throughout. Both the girls: Disha Patani & Tara Sutariya cannot act at all. A murder mystery movie with so much intensity couldn’t bind the audience because of poor performances by the leading ladies. John Abraham tried to pick up the movie but failed to pull the movie on his shoulders alone.

The music is soothing but the background score is poor and couldn’t make the scene impactful. All & in all, a total team failure.
