They both are happy but due to some fight they are not in talking terms. Gautam begs Aarvi to not break their relationship but she is really upset. On the other hand, John Abraham aka Bhairav Purohit and Disha Patani aka Rashika love story has been shown in the first half.

Bollywood Crazies Opinion: The story is good and written pretty nicely. The dialogues and twists are clap worthy. The first half looks a but slow and overdramatic but it’s the second half where the real suspense unfolds. The pre-interval metro fight sequence is worth clapping. There is another car scene where John faces few goons have been well shot and edited. The production value is good and this film keep you hooked from very first minute. The screenplay is decent and there is hardly any moments that make you feel bored. The songs and background music are the strong points of this film which keep you at the edge of the seat throughout the film. The only problem I felt is the casting of Disha Patani whose acting is not up to the mark. Though, she is trying her bit and it is visible in the second half but Disha need to up the game. Rest of the main cast have did their job nicely. Don’t expect something new from this film but still the twist and presentation looks good. The editing is good as the film is just 2 hours which is a good decision by makers.
The story and direction has been done by Mohti Suri. Aseem Arora also credited for Story and dialogues. It have been produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar. The cinematography has been done by Vikas Sivaraman and the editing work done by Devendera Murdeshwar. The background musical score has been given by Raju Singh.
Ek Villain Returns budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it is reportedly around 38 to 40 crores maximum.
Altogether, Ek Villain Returns is a decent suspense thriller that will be watched by the youth. Note, it is not a family drama.
Last Word: John Abraham and Arjun Kapoor are the show stealer here. Also watch it for Music, Songs and suspense element.
