An "erotic thriller" in India, man that's something you do not come across every day. So, Vivek Agnihotri did manage to gather a respectable amount of audience for his latest movie.
For me, Hate Story is just about an average movie.
The story is all about a cat and mouse chase between the protagonist Kavya Krishna played by Paoli Dam and Siddharth Dhanrajgir played by Gulshan Devaiya. There isn't much other than that.
Now, when a director is confident about the script and the overall movie itself it often goes in favour of the film itself. But this same confidence hits it hard when the director becomes so sure about the movie's success that he doesn't put in the desired effort. Unfortunately, Hate Story is about just that.
Even in Paoli Dam's case as the vibrant journalist(considering she is one the leading actress in the Bengali film industry) it seems that just because she's showing off her skin and doing bold scenes, she feels that the audience won't care if she hams through most of the scenes and talks in a weird trying to be sensuous kind of voice. I mean I felt so.
Honestly, I didn't pay much attention to the music and let me tell you one more thing the PROMO of Hate Story was much more BOLD(if you know what I mean.. hehe) than the whole movie itself.
A MAJOR REASON that left me disappointed :P considering that I had to tell my parents I was going for the movie. Plus the word 'Fuck' was used wherever possible which was annoying.
Yet,(there's always a 'yet') I can cannot ignore the brave attempt, the good pace and the not so bad concept of the movie. Plus Gulshan Devaiya does a decent job as well. Nikhil Dwivedi is just okay. And Paoli Dam respect
2/5 My advice wait for the director's cut version ;)
