The director makes Ek Villain an engrossing experience, no two opinions on that. Although a number of movies have focused on serial killers, the talented storyteller makes sure they pack several remarkable twists that transcend the genre, making it a novel experience for the spectator. The undercurrent of tension and the violent crimes are intertwined skilfully with the affectionate moments between the lovers and the emotional turmoil that the protagonist goes through. The writing, in short, keeps you captivated right through the finale, which, again, is not of the run of the mill variety. As a matter of fact, the clash between the good and the evil towards the concluding stages is the icing on the cake. One has come to expect a winning soundtrack from Mohit in film after film and the music of Ek Villain lives up to the gargantuan expectations!

Moderately fulfilling, the film's real villain is a lousy script.

Ek Villain is a decent watch.

This film, besides its surface flair, does not have too much to fall back upon.

Ek Villain is too silly to thrill.

Sidharth Malhotra is watchable but has hard time doing menace

The only resurrecting grace is Aisha and Guru’s (Sidharth) love story that weaves in enough mush and romance to keep you going, with ever so listenable music.

Tad overdone melodrama.

The essence of Ek Villain has been lifted from 2010 Korean thriller 'I saw the Devil' but it still manages to give out a fair impact upon the audience. It is worth watching for Siddharth's angry, violent and passionate look. Shraddha looks bubbly and giggly but doesn't quite live up to her potential. On the other hand, Riteish is unable to express his cunning and violent looks. Other characters like Aamna Singh, Prachi Desai and Kamaal R Khan have been taken unnecessarily and have no influence upon the movie at all. However, with the melodious songs and amazing cinematography this movie has been able to leave a mark!

Average Move - watch it for Siddharth's performace and passionate portrayal of his character. Average performance from Riteish and Shraddha. And all those other actors (?) is the movie be it Aamna, or the most irritating idiot Kamaal R Khan are so terrible even to watch! Prachi fails to make any impact in her first ever item song.
