In a multi-starrer film, it is often child’s play to gauge who the better performer of the two, three or more actors will be, from the beginning. Ek Villain, however, surprises, quite pleasantly. Sidharth Malhotra seems to have graduated with his third film, as he transforms from being a goon with severe anger issues into a benign lover. All expectations were still resting on Riteish Deshmukh’s shoulders, who has proven to be a good actor through his decade-long stint in Bollywood. And the actor doesn’t disappoint here too. He has ample emotions to show, and he does so wonderfully. His portrayal of the (obvious) psychotic killer was scary and disturbing, yet he maintained the innocence in his eyes, never once telling you what he may be thinking, until, of course, it becomes a repeat procedure.
