Mohit Suri Movie Ek Villain Returns Review

Director Mohit Suri is not a new name in Bollywood. We have seen his work in Murder 2, Aashiqui 2, Ek Villain, and Malang. His latest is Ek Villain Returns which is a sequel to Ek Villain (2014) in which the main lead was played by Siddharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor.

The previous one is still in the memory of viewers as it was a hit or better say musical hit. After eight years also, the ‘Galliyan‘ song is as refreshing as it was at the time of its release.

Ek Villain Returns is produced under the banner of T-Series and Balaji Motion Pictures and thus producers’ names are but obvious, Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, Bhushan Kumar, and Krishna Kumar About the star cast also, no new faces in the industry.

We have seen some powerful roles of John Abraham in Water, Satyamev Jayate, Force, and many more. In this movie, he seems to be very promising in his character with his typical Chin-Down eyebrows fringed stare at the upper floor look. Other Co-actors can be seen struggling with the character they portray.

The free-flowing storyline of Ek Villain is lacking in its successor. Flips between the flashback and the present take the movie into a confusing state. Sometimes to understand the plot you may feel heavy-headed rather than making yourself relaxed and enjoying the film, it’s just like doing homework under stress. Even though the music is embedded with Ankit Tiwari’s voice but again fails to create the magic.

Boycott Gang Effects On Bollywood Movies Box Office Collection

Ek Villain Returns survived at the box office with fainted breath as the estimated budget was approx 65-80 crores and hardly managed 73-80 crores at its box-office collection. On its opening day, it gathered 7.05 crore then the collection soared slightly over the first week, making it up to 23.5 crores.

The movie has survived the ‘Boycott Movement’ trending nowadays but failed to make up the list of 2022 hits. Netflix has brought up mediocre entertainment for weekends to watch with family and friends and it will start streaming on Netflix from the 9th of September.
