Despite having watched “I Saw The Devil” online already, I went for its Bollywood remake because all I could recall about “I Saw The Devil” was that I’ve watched it. Everything else about it has been wiped out from the memory, thanks to the ongoing health hazards. Anyways, I’m glad that I free downloaded ek villain from Filmxy because it was an engaging fare (the fast forward button may have helped the cause, though). Riteish Deshmukh wasn’t incredible in a negative role, but he isn’t used to playing this kind of role. Surprisingly, KRK’s performance was quite impressive. Maybe because his character didn’t essentially require him to put in any extra efforts, and all he needed was to act himself!! Sidharth Malhotra & Shraddha Kapoor give a top notch performance. While the dialogues are effective, the jokes used are quite worn out. Wished they’d used some better ones. Apart from that, the full movie has nothing much to complain about. Enjoy and have fun.
Also you do not start an already mediocre suspense movie by SHOWING THE MOST SUSPENSEFUL SCENE. That takes away from the suspense, you feel no urge to watch the rest of the movie, as one of the most important scenes has already been shown in the first scene. The story is like many other suspense movies, doesn’t bring much to the table, however the performances by the actors were good but Ritesh Deshmukh brings his career best performance in this movie. Unfortunately, not even him alone, could save this movie.
Great premise and great cast. This film grips it's audience by the throat and doesn't let go until the interval. The second half of the film although slightly less gripping takes the film in a direction that no one could have guessed. The action scenes are a major let down due to bad choreography, but the songs are another saving grace. Ritesh Deshmuk took his character from grey to out and out evil which is what was needed and departed 110% from his usual image. Overall a great watch!

an awesome movie....had enough action and enough thrills in it revolving around a cute lovestory between guru(sid) and aisha(shraddha).the story was pretty different from the usual bollywood style slapstick comedies or innocent(p.s. dumb) rom-coms so be ready for the change else stay away as this wont be any of those many "similar" bollywood movies being made these days...the storyline is based on everyone's emotions from ritesh deshmukh's frustration(he's the real villian hence) to sid's loneliness+anger(so he turns out to be the new angry young man villian) to shraddha kapoor's peppy full of life nature. in all a nice, well paced, romantic drama with a lot of dishum dishum ;)
