Filmmaker Mohit Suri`s latest film Ek Villain is inspired by the South Korean revenge film I Saw the Devil. Although, it is quite evident that the action is toned down for the Indian audience.
It`s a story of a serial killer who picks the wrong man`s fiancee to murder.
Bad guy with a good heart Guru (Siddharth Malhotra) works for a local gangster (Remo Fernandez) in Goa. Life takes a pleasant turn once he meets the chirpy Aisha (Shraddha Kapoor) who wants to live her life to the fullest and has a joke for every occasion. Aisha`s life is all about doing things for others and interestingly for one of her many cases she wants to take Guru`s help. He doesn`t seem interested but she for some reason is sure that he will agree and predictably so, he eventually does. A few scenes later, Guru and Aisha are married.
