When I watched this movie I didn't knew its similarity with the Korean movie I Saw The Devil. But despite that I liked it. Its definitely modified for Indian audiences as there is not much violence as in ISTD. Some people found it a little disturbing but it wasn't the same for me. If you are a fan of Hollywood/foreign thriller/horror movies you wont find this disturbing at all. What lightens the mood of the movie is Guru and Aisha's sweet love story. Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor's chemistry in the movie is adorable. And the songs enhances there love story even more.
Another reason to like this movie are the performances of the 3 main leads. Sidharth Malhotra's role in this movie is different from his last movies and he does justify to the role quite a lot (and even looks better in this one). Shraddha Kapoor's acting in this movie is definitely better than it was in Aashiqui 2. She's charming and brings a little humor in the movie. But the man who stole the show was Ritesh Deshmukh. We've loved him in comic roles, no doubt he has great comic timing. But this movie completely changes your view about him. He does complete justice to the negative role given to him.
Watch Ek Villain if you like something a little different than the typical Bollywood movies. Just don't go in with a lot of expectations, maybe it won't be full-filled and you'll end up hating an overall good movie.
