Bajirao Singham is back and this time, he's posted in mean Mumbai. Attempts to bribe this super-cop are met with a teacher-like "what am I going to do with him" expression and finished with an ear-splitting slap.
The film is built around an interesting concept, sadly marred by a worn-out story. The idea of a central character, a genius of sorts, always looking for a “kick” is immediately arresting. For that kick, Devil Lal Singh (Salman) doesn’t mind being chased around by sword-wielding ruffians, taking on local MLAs, fighting off molesters etcetera.
Ek Villain, or a manual on different ways of killing women, is a gory film that‘s hesitant to acknowledge its dark layers. On the surface, it’s mostly an optimistic movie with a preachy ‘Darkness can be destroyed only by light’ message.
There are bad movies, and then there’s Humshakals. The worst film of 2014 so far.
Watch it if you can tolerate Saif getting sexy with Riteish, and Riteish seducing Saif’s clone. And if Ram Kapoor lusting after his own clone (in drag), and trying to rape “her” is your idea of fun, who am I to judge. Just don’t say you hadn’t been warned!
