This Friday, moviegoers will be treated for a film with only villains and no heroes as Mohit Suri’s ‘Ek Villain’ hits screens today. The film starring Riteish Deshukh, Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra boasts of a strong plot and high-end performances by its lead actors, from the theatrical trailers.

The thriller film’s trailers, with a lot of intrigue element, have generated a lot of interest among people.

‘Ek Villain’ has already got a thumbs up from the film fraternity, who cannot stop applauding the film – its director, actors and especially Riteish Deshmukh.

This is Riteish Deshmukh’s second consecutive release after the successful ‘Humshakals’. While ‘Humshakals’ was panned by critics, the movie still managed to collect a whopping Rs 50 crore at the box office.

Riteish Deshmukh had earlier said that Humshakals success will eat the BO collection of ‘Ek Villain’, we believe his fans are more excited to see him in his first ever negative role. (See poll results here)

“It (‘Humshakals’) released last week and critically it was not well received as much as we had hoped for. But people want to watch the film and have fun. With ‘Ek Villain’ I am hoping for both critical and popular acceptance,” Riteish said.

The film’s music composed by Mithoon and Ankit Tiwari is on everyone’s playlist, with ‘Galiyaan by Shraddha Kapoor and ‘Banjara’ emerging as obvious favourites.

The film has been promoted well but will ‘Ek Villain’ live up to the expectation it has created? It will known soon with Shubhra Gupta’s review. Keep watching this space for updates.
