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.

Snake Mallika's Hot Hissses Saves Her Love, but Kills the Box-Office!
17 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I hope all that pre-release publicity and marketing of Hisss by hottie Mallika 'Serpent" Sherawat did some good for the movie monetarily because simply said, the movie is just average, either in performances, direction or visual effects.

I feel sorry for Irrfan Khan and Divya Dutta. Both very talented actors were put through this disappointing show in major roles. Their presence made no difference! Even foreign actor Jeff Doucette, although appropriately sick & greedy as per his character, could not do much to save this movie.

Nothing special about Mallika Sherawat too except that she flaunts off her toned, lithe body and some cool snake eyes!

Although there were potentially scary scenes, the horror factor in almost all scenes fell short due to messy or incomplete execution(I feel). The script writer(s) must be disheartened that the ultimate result on screen was probably only fifty-percent of what they conceived.

Verdict: In one word - Hisssss! And that's not a compliment.
