The award-winning film stars Anna Ishida as Emily, a ghost trapped in her own house, and she carries the entire film as the sole cast member — other than the disembodied voice of Sylvia (Jeannie Barroga), a clairvoyant hired to rid the house of spirits. The resulting story, influenced by films including “Picnic at Hanging Rock” and “Poltergiest,” is an eerie, haunting delight.
“Ek Villain,” stars Sidharth Malhotra and Shradhha Kapoor and is directed by Mohit Suri. This is first big release for Shraddha Kapoor after the stupendous success of the Mohit Suri directed “Aashiqui 2.” It is also the first time that Riteish Deshmukh will be seen in a character with grey shades.
