Storyline

Desperate brain cancer-ridden Caucasian, George States, with only six months to live, decides to capture a male cobra with hopes of obtaining 'Nagmani' from the shape shifting Naga female. For reasons that remain obscure throughout the film this will not only cure his brain cancer but also make him immortal. He hires workers in the jungles of Natchi, Tamil Nadu, who witness the intimacy of the cobras, capture the male allowing the female to escape. George then holds the male cobra in a glass cage hoping that the female cobra will attempt a rescue, and he will then release it in exchange for the Nagamani. The region experiences horror and religious awakening after the enraged female cobra, with the image of its oppressor in its eyes, sheds its snake-skin and takes on a female human form, setting out on its deadly mission of tracking down and destroying her mate's oppressor, and whoever else gets in her way whether involved or not.

Hisss is slightly different Bollywood movie with a Hollywood taste. It differs from Naagin,Nagine series as movie is based on facts and realistic approach. It is very simple horror movie. After watching the movie, your head will be totally blank as in.. it is difficult to comment whether movie is good or bad. It is obvious that when naagin(snake) is converted into human(which can transform into human),she will be nude. You will be impressed with Mallika's body(may be the best in Bollywood), even though I believe movie don't portray nudity. Love making with a snake is bit odd. In short, Positives: light humor, music, concept, special effects, Mallika's body specially street light scene, scary scenes, acting(both Mallika and Irfan) and very important one: you will not feel bored.

Negative: Very simple script, again exposing poverty in India, poor acting of supporting staff, broken screenplay, low budget impacts.

If we give smooth flow to all the scenes then it will be far better.. I believe "The best" is saved for Hollywood release.
