Rajkummar Rao to star in Hindi remake of Telugu thriller ‘HIT’

0

Actor Rajkummar Rao is all set to star in the Hindi remake of Telugu superhit cop thriller “HIT”.

“HIT”, which stands for Homicide Intervention Team, tells the story of a police officer who is on the trail of a missing woman. Director Sailesh Kolanu, who garnered accolades for the Telugu original, will helm the project in Hindi.

“When I saw ‘HIT’, I instantly connected with it. It’s an engaging story, relevant in today’s environment. As an actor, I am always on the look out to play characters I haven’t explored and ‘HIT’ gives me a chance to do that. I’m looking forward to take this journey with Sailesh and (producer) Dil Raju,” said Rajkummar.

On working on the Hindi remake, Kolanu said: “The first case of ‘HIT’ tells the story of a police officer who is constantly fighting a battle with his past and his present. So it’s a troubled character. I wanted to cast someone who can bring that darkness to the role and still make the audience root for him with a matured performance. I felt Raj can evoke that kind of a response. I have been following Rajkummar’s work ever since I watched ‘Shaitan’. He is a terrific actor and has managed to surprise us everytime with his performances.”

“HIT” is planned as a massive investigation franchise in the South and Kolanu is keen to follow that in Bollywood too.

Sharing his thoughts, the director said: “Yes, I see ‘HIT’ has the potential to be a successful franchise in Bollywood too. I feel the premise of ‘HIT’ is very global. Of course, I will be making very minor changes to suit the sensibilities of the audience all over India. The idea is to create a realistic world of crime and investigation and put a bunch of beautifully flawed and grey characters in that world. And then let multiple stories unfold within that world.”

Producer Dil Raju, who is remaking Nani’s “Jersey” in Hindi with Shahid Kapoor, will be backing the venture along with Kuldeep Rathore.

The film is in pre-production and will go on floors in 2021. Other details will be announced soon.

HIT Review – Suspenseful Documentary on Crime investigation

HIT Telugu Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.75/5

Natural Star Nani’s second production HIT is releasing across the globe this Friday. Vishwak Sen and Ruhani Sharma are the lead actors in this crime thriller. HIT trailer received a thumping response and the film is carrying decent expectations. Sailesh Kolanu is the director and Wall Poster Cinema produced HIT.

Story:

Vikram (Vishwak Sen), a top investigative officer in the HIT (Homicide Intervention Team) is recommended to take a leave of absence and get some rest to help relieve his post-traumatic stress. A lady officer investigating a missing girl (Preeti) case is kidnapped. How Vikram solves these two cases forms the story.

Analysis:

HIT‘s basic story is simple, nothing special about it. What stands out are the authority and authenticity put in place to showcase the investigation procedures. The killer intro and back story reveal are very impressive.

It is always a good play to associate the protagonist with a psychological disorder, post-traumatic stress in this case. It makes for a different characterization. Vishwak Sen excelled at this. The movie begins with quickly establishing Vikram’s problem solving intelligence. This is followed by Preeti’s kidnap story. The first half gives the viewer an insight into real life clue identification, DNA tests, evidence finding methods. No twists/turns here. Second of the movies starts with a frustrated Vikram, unhappy that his leads don’t work out. Adding to the mystery, his colleague and love interest, Neha (Ruhana Sharma) is kidnapped. Halfway into the second half, the audience starts to lose some interest as the director focuses more on the technical aspects than the content. However, the movie is good from the pre-climax and after. The climax and killer backstory are very impressive.

There is a liberal usage of the ‘F’ words in both English and Telugu, but they are used in the right situations and do not come off as offensive.

Generally speaking, directors in this genre prescribe to the ‘more twists mean smarter film’ notion and end up putting in too many twists and turns. HIT takes the route of maintaining the suspense intact and using authentic investigative methods instead of just adding a bunch of twists and turns.

Director Sailesh Kolanu has done a very good job in this genre. He designed the HIT film as a series. Good production values by the producers, hero Nani and Prashanti T. Good background score – a little loud at times.

Performances:

Vishwak Sen steals the show as a smart, aggressive police officer. We cannot visualize any other Tollywood hero to do better in this role. Bhanuchander, Brahmaji and Murali Sharma are department members and acted well. Hariteja’s character could have been better. Heorine Ruhani Sharma, also a police officer, had a limited role and acted ok.

Positives:

  • Vishwak Sen ‘s stellar performance
  • Authentic investigative story
  • Well maintained suspense
  • Pre Climax and Climax portions

Negatives:

  • Lack of commercial elements
  • Lag in Mid-Second Half

Verdict:

HIT movie is an engaging ‘Whodunnit’ murder mystery with a well maintained suspense. The lead actor Vishwak’s stellar performance, the director’s portrayal of authentic investigative methods are the strengths of the film. On the flipside, lack of commercial elements may be prove to be counterproductive. Overall, a decent watch for the genre lovers.
