This week Mohit Suri’s much-awaited directorial venture Ek Villain will hit the theatres. While the filmmaker has managed to create great buzz around his film, will it witness earth shattering opening at the BO? Read on to know…
Ek Villain starring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshumkh in the lead roles will release come Friday. The romantic thriller has grabbed everyone’s attention courtesy good music and of course the lead pair’s sizzling chemistry. In fact, the new promos have only upped the curiosity level amongst movie goers. So overall, wethinks Mohit has got everything bang on – from cast to music and even promotional strategy. With so much hype around the film, we are pretty sure the expectations are sky high from Ek Villain which does seem promising. But the question is – will it create hungama at the ticket windows. Will Sid and Shraddha’s first film together become the biggest blockbuster of this year?
Exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi says, “I’m quite certain the film will take a phenomenal opening at the box office! Everything that is required for a film not featuring the Khans, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor to take a massive opening, ie – the music, sensational promos and impactful marketing is well in place! Besides, revenge dramas work only if the emotion of the film works and Mohit Suri is a director who has always got it right on that front! With virtually everything working in the film’s favour, there’s little chance it won’t be a money spinner!”
Well, we agree with Rathi and do think Ek Villain will appeal to the masses. But let’s not assume too much too soon. Would be better if waited till Friday, hai na?
