HIT – RajKummar Rao’s Performance Punch
HIT – The First Case
RajKummar Rao, tangled between his job and traumatic past is enthralling the audience in a cop avatar in HIT: The First Case.
HIT is a remake of the Tamil film (2020) with the same name starring Vijay Deverakonda as Arjun Reddy and directed by the original director, Dr. Sailesh Kolanu.
Written by Girish Kohli and Sailesh Kolanu, Hit: The First Case is going to be a hit if not super-hit, and why not because it has got the power pack performer, RajKummar Rao who has always managed to please the audience with an innocent, and sort of heart touching and mind-blowing acting. He always portrays a common man to perfection.
The story revolves around Vikram Jaisingh played by RajKummar Rao who is a Police inspector in the special squad called the homicide intervention team (HIT). Vikram suffers from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) as he has daunting memories of a loved one being set on fire in front of him.
Neha (Sanya Malhotra), Vikram’s wife who was part of the forensic investigation team, disappears in the middle of solving the case of the missing girl Preeti Mathur (Rose Khan). Vikram gets involved in Preeti’s case as he sensed that the case has a connection with Neha’s disappearance.
Despite the anguished past, he is determined to find an 18-year-old girl, Preeti, who goes missing on the ring road of Jaipur, Rajasthan. What happens in pursuit of solving the case leads to the rest of the story.
The storyline of the film is just terrific since it’s a suspense thriller with lots of twists and turns. Sailesh Kolanu has proved himself to be marvelous. Hats off to his direction which brought the original ideas alive in the film. RajKummar Rao is a multi-talented actor who knows how to capture the role given to him mindfully.
As demanded by the script, Sanya was given less screen time. A little more of her would have made the movie even better as she is a versatile actress who has delivered admiring performances in Dangal and Ludo.
The chemistry between Neha and Vikram was interesting too and the music make it more exciting. I personally liked the song ‘Kitni Haseen Hogi ‘.
The cinematography and background score also did justice to the central idea of the movie as they both evoked a feeling of thrill and apprehension among the viewers.
I would not say much, you watch the movie and decide for yourself.
