Finally, the long wait of the audience is about to end. After showering love for 'Ek Villain' in 2014, movie lovers seem to be quite excited for its sequel. Helmed by Mohit Suri, 'Ek Villain Returns' is all set for theatrical release on July 29. 'Ek Villain Returns' stars John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria in the lead.

To level up the anticipation among the audience, a few days back, the makers dropped the official trailer of Ek Villain Returns. Earlier on July 4, the makers of the 'Ek Villain Returns' released its first song titled Galliyan Returns which is a reboot version of the original Galliyan song from Ek Villain. After taking the excitement levels of the fans to a notch higher with the reboot version of the song Galliyan, the makers dropped another soulful track on Friday.

The song, titled 'Dil', perfectly showed the love story of the lead pairs along with the agony of love. They will surely give you goosebumps.

With crooner Raghav Chaitanya on board, the song 'Maine Tera Naam Dil Rakh Diya', features Arjun, Tara, John and Disha. While Arjun and Tara seem to be in love, John can be seen shedding tears for his love Disha.

The more than two-minute video of the song continues to build suspense around who is the real villain in the film.

Composed by Kaushik-Guddu, the song opens with some happy moments between Arjun and Tara Sutaria as they fall in love which later shifts to a darker mode towards the end. 

Take a look at the song below:

Ek Villain vs Ek Villain Returns: Who is the real villain?

While the internet is abuzz with different speculations about Ek Villain Returns, movie buffs reminisced the Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor starrer 'Ek Villain' that was quite heart-touching in all means. Riteish as Rakesh Mahadkar won the hearts of the audience being a serial killer and stepping in as a baddie for the first time. At first, it was not convincing to think that innocent Rakesh could have murdered women in a series, who were rude to him. 

Similarly, in the sequel, as introduced in the trailer, the new villain targets women who didn't reciprocate men's feelings to become a messiah for jilted lovers. Comprising love, action, suspense and murders - the action-thriller film is all set to give fans goose bumps.
Various theories are abuzz on the internet about the story of 'Ek Villain Returns'. Here's one theory that seems to be more convincing.

As seen in the trailer and narrated, one of the males is the Villain who wants to become a messiah for one-sided lovers by killing girls who have rejected the love proposals. While the chemistry between Arjun and Tara seems to be quite cheerful, the relationship between John and Tara appears to be a bit offbeat.

Arjun at first looks quite cheerful and of jolly nature. But, behind this fun-loving guy, there might be a psychic person who avenges the love rejection of girls. On the other hand, John may be the tough guy with less emotions or is unable to express emotions to her girl. The fight between the duo would be quite interesting to watch. After rejection, Arjun would leave no stone unturned to avenge Tara. But, the mystery lies in why Arjun and John would face off.

On the other hand, at first, Disha and Tara seem to be mere love interests of the duo. But, towards the end of the trailer, the girls' duo is seen sharing the screen with a maniac laugh. This could be a hint that the girls deceived their love partners as they seem to be on a mission. The girls could have ditched their partners to come together and while Arjun is on a mission to avenge his rejection, Disha could have prompted John to faceoff Arjun.

So, as per this theory, neither John nor Arjun are the villains. The real villain in the story could be the girls duo-Disha and Tara.
