Spoilers ahead…

No, I have not spoiled anything for you. The film doesn’t need me. It does a pretty good job of spoiling itself.

Remember Ek Villain? It was a superhit that said that a man can become a serial killer because his wife keeps nagging him. Now, we have Ek Villain Returns, though no member of the original cast actually returns. Instead, we have a very formidable acting quartet: Arjun Kapoor, John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria. Between them, they have at least two-and-a-half expressions, which, frankly, is more than what I expected. And what is this film’s philosophy? That a man can become a serial killer because of love. In simpler times, you could make your girlfriend happy by taking her out to dinner or giving her flowers. Now, apparently, you have to take a sledgehammer and butcher other women, while wearing a yellow smiley mask.
