Verdict: Vishwak Sen on the path of another HIT.
Right from the inception of movies, a thriller is the one genre that has never gone out of fashion. The audience craves being thrilled with either the suspense factor or fear. Now comes a thriller titled HIT (Homicide Intervention Team), directed by debutante Sailesh Kolanu and jointly produced by Natural Star Nani and stylist Prashanti Tipirneni under their banner Wallposter Cinema. With their debut production Awe ringing bells at the box-office, there are decent expectations surrounding HIT. Starring Vishwak Sen, who has recently given hits in the form of Ee Nagaraniki Emaindhi and Faluknama Das, HIT stands to be a hat-trick hit.
What’s HIT About:
Vikram Rudraraju (Vishwak Sen) is an Investigative Officer for Homicide Intervention Team or HIT. He suffers from post-traumatic stress and is recommended to take some time off and get rest. In the meanwhile, a lady officer who investigates a missing girl (Preethi) goes missing herself. How Vikram resolves both the cases forms the crux of HIT.
HIT scores high in the way the suspense is built and maintained throughout the film and finally unveiled. Debutante director Sailesh Kolanu put his immense caliber and talent to use in his very first movie and must be applauded for the clarity in his writing. The minutest details for every character help create a certain sense of enigma that holds the viewer’s interest. The way the investigation is carried holds promise to propel this novel plot smoothly. Vishwak Sen helps raise the bar with his astonishing act in the role of Vikram Rudraraju. He has gotten into the skin of the character and looks like a real officer from the Homicide Intervention Team. Ruhani Sharma is apt in her role. Chaithanya Sagiraju as Vishwak Sen’s colleague is impressive. Editor Garry yet again ensured that his cut kept the audience glued. Vivek Sagar’s background score is more than extraordinary and Manikandan’s visuals keep the narrations close to reality. Nani’s production house has done more justice to this script.
What Could’ve Been Better:
HIT is an out-and-out thriller movie that stays true to its genre. Devoid of any commercial elements, one has to wait and watch how it would be received by the general audience.
