Ek Villain has a huge advantage with critics: it is not Humshakals. That said, we still saw a few features of Humshakals in Riteish’s next – notably, jokes that fell flat and unlikeable characters. Fortunately, a couple of good acting performances and a passable, though watered-down, script ensured that it impressed us more favourable.
Our Express LOL reporter was at the premiere, and met someone who is currently enjoying a long holiday.
Next, he met a film analyst, critic and actor (in his own words) – a man who actually had a cameo in Ek Villain – KRK.
Next, he confronted a decidedly unhappy Rajinikanth.
Finally, he met with one man at the eye of a self-created storm, the Union Health Minister of India.
Watch Ek Villain for a masterful performance by Riteish Deshmukh, or to escape the fate of watching Humshakals.
