Every now and then, directors claim that their films (thrillers) will hold everyone’s attention from start to finish. Seldom does a film achieve the feat. While a few films get somewhere close to that mark, many films fail big time in ticking what they intended to. That is where it becomes hard to believe that HIT is director Sailesh Kolanu’s debut film. With HIT, the director has hit the bull’s eye. Well, almost!
Vikram (Vishwak Sen) is an effective and intelligent investigative officer who is struggling to deal with post-traumatic stress. He gets panic attacks whenever he’s reminded of his past. He takes special interest in a case involving the abduction of an 18-year-old Preethi, and while doing so, the memories of his past are triggered.
HIT (Homicide Intervention Team) is a perfect example of when a brilliant script meets the best of cast and technicians. Right from the word go, the film holds you by the shoulder and grabs your attention. The film doesn’t waste time in establishing characters. It delves right into the story. And the tension in finding the whereabouts of Preethi makes the audience equally curious about the case.
