Mohanlal gives a terrific performance as an aged cop who is going through his own emotions while trying to solve a case. Vishal, the popular Tamil actor makes a successful debut into Malayalam cinema with his impeccable dialogue delivery and performance. Manju Warier and Hansika too perform well in their given roles. Rashi Khanna plays the role of a young cop but her character is left behind as the story moves forward.

B Unnikrishnan's direction is good and he brings out the best in his actors. The script of the film though is weak, and the story is nothing new.  The screenplay fails to accommodate all the actors, as some of them are wasted.The cinematography by Manoj Paramahamsa is top class and the background score by Sushin Shyam sets the tone right for the entire movie.

Verdict: 'Villain' is an emotional thriller that'll keep the audience hooked and has got some amazing performances. Definitely worth a watch.
