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, and capture the male, allowing the female to escape. George then holds the male cobra in a glass cage in the hopes 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.

All I can say that "Mallika Sherawat's Nakedness can't save this Garbish.
28 December 2010 | by saadgkhanSee all my reviews

HISSS – TRASH IT ( D ) It won't be wrong to say that "Hisss" is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It's just horrible from first scene to the last scene. The story about Nagin (Female snake) turning into a Human after 100hundred years is a popular myth in India. Their have been lots of movies and TV shows about this story which were pretty successful. I think this is the only time when it's presented in most amateurish and childish way. The only thing keeping me giving Hisss the (F) rating is Miss. Mallika Sherawat. She is smoking Hot and apparently Naked most of the time. Her transformation from Nagin to Human was really scary and interested. I am huge Mallika Sherawat' fan so, because of Her nakedness I am giving it a (D) rating. Quite cheap of me :p But I accept that! In my final words all I can say that "Mallika Sherawat's Nakedness can't save this Garbish. Trash it!
