Ek Villain- Film Review

Mohit Suri (of 'Murder 2' fame) has got some talent. For giving some brooding, unexpected moments in his films. The narration is not linear, like many others. He also uses a lot of closeups, and does not use two hundred and fifty dancers in a song meant for the hero and heroine.

The first half of this film was very good, but he kind of ran out of a story in the second. The climax is not as tight or interesting as it might have been, and it was actually predicted by a friend during the intermission. I found the actors good though. Shraddha was the best, followed by the two men. But Siddharth at times has the same expression for too long, like some TV serial specialists. Riteish's character has a dramatic feel to it, and is very different from his usual comic acts. All the characters seem to be on the edge, which helps the narrative, much more in the first half.

The songs are nice, the photography good, and the violence, bearable. Better than many recent films (refer to Humshakals review). 2.8 on 5 (watchable). With the second half repaired, it had the potential for a 4 on 5.
