Mehak Aug 1 . 6 min read

Wow... the sequel of "Ek Villain" movie has finally arrived but why Aditya Roy Kapur is not in the sequel of Ek Villain when initially he was a part of the movie, such questions will be answered in this article. So let's start right now and not waste any more time.

Ek Villain Returns is an upcoming action thriller movie in Hindi. It is directed by Mohit Suri and Balaji Motion Pictures and T-Series produced it together. The film is a continuation of Mohit Suri's earlier work, "Ek Villain," 2014 starring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor, and Riteish Deshmukh in lead. However, compared to the last movie, Ek villain 2 has a distinct storyline. 

Ek villain returns plot-

The sequel, "Ek Villain Returns," which was released eight years after the original, gives a new spin on the idea that "every story has a villain." Love-obsessed Bhairav struggles to understand Rasika's rejection. He makes a scene at his ex-wedding girlfriend's because he is outspoken. He assaults visitors and security personnel in a popular video. Aarvi Malhotra, a young vocalist, parodies this song by using elements from the video. It spreads widely. Later on, Aarvi is mysteriously and sinisterly kidnapped from her house. There is a tonne of drama and action as her lover Gautam, who is held responsible for her abrupt disappearance, sets out to find her.

This time, the plot broadens its scope by featuring two male characters who alternate between being heroes and villains, one of whom is disguised while the other is attempting to reveal his true identity. This notion that everyone possesses both heroic and villainous traits, with which one emerges as the dominant force depending on the circumstances, is merit in the movie.

Ek villain 2 review-

Ek Villain Returns has a compelling storyline and a compelling plot. In the follow-up, Ek Villain Returns, director Mohit Suri, who did a wonderful job with the first film in the Ek Villain franchise, presents a masala entertainer with massy language, thrilling scenes, and good acting. Enjoy this movie to see a stylish thriller that manages to appeal to a wide audience.

Ek Villain returns and has a convoluted plot and mediocre acting, which makes Ek Villain seem like a superior effort.

However, a convoluted storyline and unimpressive acting do not create a good movie; in contrast, the average "Ek Villain" seems to be a better movie.

The movie got off to a good start at the box office, earning Rs 7.5 crore on Day 1 and continuing to do so on Day 2.
