The film revolves around the life of a hacker played by Rohan who is a young boy of 19, who falls in love with an older married girl played by Hina called Sameera Khan aka Sam. Soon he becomes obsessed and a rejection of Lady Sam leads to follow the path of a hacker entering all his life and exposing them to the world. So what happens next, how Sam treats it or will she bow to this young hacker’s obsession, it’s worth checking out in the cinema next door.
In the world of cyberspace where life is often vulnerable when we become the target of any hacker or cyber henchman. They take our lives for a ride, which is the moot point of this movie. The film in terms of content and story seems revolutionary in many ways. While the subject is an old concept in Hollywood with several films hitting screens and doing well, it just so happens to be a new idea in B Town. Vikram Bhatt using a young man to head a cybercrime case called hacking seemed to have literally quadrupled.
The film is able to have a good start, at the beginning, by keeping the audience glued to their chairs. However, this causes them to lose an audience with a slow pace in the middle, sometimes losing the edge. The storyline loses all meaning thanks to some boring sequences coming in the middle of the main actors. Now speaking of performances, Hina Khan is an accomplished actress and she has proven her skills in the small screen industry. Making her debut with Hacked in Bollywood, she did a decent job playing the part of Sam.
However, the others with her like Krishna Bhatt, Mohit Malhotra and Rohan Shah seemed to falter a bit. All thanks to their poor expressions in front of the camera. The staged part looked good, but not so effective at retaining audiences in a significant way, even giving some flaws in its implementation. The music is okay, but it can still be improved, so it’s the camera work and the tracks suddenly popping out of nowhere. All in all, these elements somewhere were seen to arrive slowly and creepily, significantly hampering the entertainment value of the film.
Hack the last word
The film revolves around a powerful concept and theme, but it has limited reach confined to educated youth. On the flip side, with few flaws in the star cast and stuff, the film may not appeal to audiences in any significant way. Still, it may be a good catch for a few.
