Ek Villain Returns, Mohit Suri's second installment in his Ek Villain franchise has received lukewarm response at the box office.

After registering a decent opening of ₹7 crore on Friday and registering some growth on Sunday, the film took a sharp dive at the box office numbers on Monday.

Starring Arjun Kapoor, John Abraham, Tara Sutaria and Disha Patani, Ek Villain Returns is a psychological action mystery which received mixed reviews upon its release.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh ​​shared the film's four-day collection on Twitter. He wrote, "#EkVillinReturns Fri 7.05 cr, Shani 7.47 cr, Surya 9.02 cr, Mon 3.02 cr. Total: ₹26.56 crore. #IndiaBiz.

Hindustan Times' evaluation of the film called it "painful, pointless and psychotic".

She said, "It's about the journey we are all going through and how different situations can change and make us a hero or a villain.

My person is smart enough and she believes that being greedy is not a problem. She can go to any extent for his greed."

Producer Ekta Kapoor had said, "Getting someone to buy a ticket of ₹200 and watch the film, while they can watch it OTT months later, is a big challenge.

But the good thing about Ek Villain Returns is that It's a dramatic experience.

From two men's fight to the suspense, I don't think this movie can be enjoyed unless you sit in the theater with your friends and family.
