Medium : Hindi
Starring : Mallika Sherawat, Irfan Khan, Divya Dutta
Director : Jennifer Chambers Lynch
Music : Alexander Von Bubenheim

She has not acted in many movies, the movie that told the story of illegal relationship itself made her popular, in a short span of her career of around seven years, she had done a movie opposite Kamal Hassan and even she got the chance to act in an English project by the Asian action hero Jackie Chan. She is none other than Mallika Sherawat who is notable through the movies like 'Murder', 'Dasavathaaram', 'Myth' etc. Recently I watched a trailer having the hollywood standard, featuring Mallika and the scenes showed that it is a different investigation thriller, the name of the movie was 'Hisss'. Those scenes can create an extra interest for any viewer.

The story starts with a foreigner suffering from brain cancer, reaching the thick forests with a group to collect the 'Naagmani', which can give him a long life. He captures a male snake. The female snake takes the form of a human being (Mallika Sherawat) and searches for her partner. She mingles with the society and kills those people who are nuisances to others by taking the form of a big snake. The police officer (Irfan Khan) is investigating the case. How the snake woman takes the revenge is shown in the end.

Mallika Sherawat has acted in the movie with out any dialogues. She has done almost a nude appearance to make the character more realistic, but her attempt had been wasted for such an unprofessional project. The costumes and the visual effects given for her character in some areas are ok. The reason for showing a past episode in the beginning is not known. The foreigner is behaving like a mad personality and kills those people who are working for him, which is not good to watch. His hindi dialogues are also not easy to follow. There is no logic in the story and the scenes are having no connections also. The editing is weak. The investigation scenes are also below average. The computer graphics featuring the snake shots are amateur. The chasing, song sung by the mother and daughter in law, the experiment done by the foreigner etc are those areas which will make you loose the temper.

A movie should not be made like this - 'Hisss' can be projected to substantiate such a fact. It happened in spite of many of the hollywood technicians who worked behind it.

Rating : 1.5 / 10
