If Villain was not directed by me, reviewers would have rated it as a classic: B Unnikrishnan

Mohanlal’s latest outing Villain, directed by B Unnikrishnan continues to do decent business inspite of all the mixed reviews. The movie was released amidst tremendous hype on October 27. Fans and commoners who expected a mass action thriller were disappointed with Villain as the movie follows a very serious mood.

Villain is a slow paced thriller which is high on emotions and maintains an intense nature throughout the narrative. After the initial mixed reviews, Villain found its right audience among the families, who seemed to like the emotional factor in the movie. While a section rated Villain as a ‘class’ film, others thought it to be a half baked one with a pretentious philosophical style.

Unhappy with the negative reviews, director B Unnikrishnan has claimed that reviewers would have rated the movie as a classic had it been another director whose name had appeared in the credits.

About how he sees reviewers and their opinion, B Unnikrishnan said, “There is no film that has satisfied everyone. I read several reviews. The state of reviews today is pathetic. I have a past of doing cinema reviews very seriously. If you change Villain’s title credits of ‘written and directed by Unnikrishnan’ to some other name, the same reviewers would have unanimously praised the film as a classic.”

Apart from Mohanlal, Villain had stellar supporting cast comprising of Manju Warrier, Vishal, Hansika Motwani, Srikanth and Raashi Khanna. The latter four were making their Malayalam debut with Villain and they could not have asked for anything better than a Mohanlal starrer to start off with.

With no big films slated for release this month, Villain is expected to have a free run in the Kerala box office in the coming weeks. Rockline Venkatesh has funded the movie under his banner Rockline Films.
