Talking about the film, the original movie starred Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor in principal roles and they played a couple whose life takes an unexpected turn after one of them gets murdered by Riteish Deshmukh's character. A sequel of Suri's 2014 suspense thriller, also featured JD Chakravarthy, Karishma Sharma, Shaad Randhawa, and Kaizaad Kotwal in supporting roles.
Pinkvilla in its review said that, “It’s easier to keep the audience interested when you start with a bang, and director Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain Returns’ opening sequence immediately pulls you into his world where villains thrive and heroes don’t exist. However, it fails to attain consistency in the ‘staying interested’ aspect. The film revolves around an investigation looking into the murder of those women, who have been killed for being in unrequited love stories. All is well until now. However, the real problem begins when you start seeking more than just that from this crime-thriller, and that is exactly where the film suffers.
