Mallika Sherawat's Hisss - Movie Review

Give it a Misss

The Hisss movie review on ApunKaChoice.com. If ever a royal society is to be formed for prevention of cruelty to cinema, Hisss, directed by Jennifer Lynch and starring Mallika Sherawat, ought to be its maiden project. The film is a case study of what all cinema should not be.

Firstly, a subject like a shape-shifting snake-woman or icchadhari nagin on a vendetta isn’t exactly intriguing to make you dash for the nearest theatre. Themes like these were done and buried way back in the 1980s when Sridevi writhed in serpentine dances to the sonorous tunes of the been played by Amrish Puri in Nagina.

Now, in the 21st century, it’s Mallika Sherawat modestly stripping down to her birthday suit to play a vengeful nagin out to find her abducted mate.

An American named George (Jeff Doucette) is on a mission to find a snake couple with the hope of finding the mythical naagmani that could prevent him from dying of cancer. He captures a male cobra with the intent of making his female counterpart, the nagin, part with naagmani as a ransom to save her mate.

The nagin takes the human form and the next we see is a minimally dressed Mallika Sherawat setting out to hunt for her missing mate and in the course imparting her own justice by killing the tormenters of women.

Irrfan Khan shocks with his presence as a cop investigating the strange murders in this monstrosity of a film. Divya Dutt plays his wife. The question that begs to be asked is what ghoul got in these two actors to make them sign Hisss.

Mallika Sherawat scowls, frowns, glowers and pops out her eyeballs in the name of acting. Of course, she slithers with slimy snakes and even kisses one in a scene. Yuck! The special effects are of the tackiest kind and the direction by Jennifer Lynch is conspicuous by its absence.

Verdict - Prefer a snake bite to this film.
