The film revolves around the life of a hacker played by Rohan who is a 19 years young boy, who gets in love with an older, married girl played by Hina called Sameera Khan aka Sam. Soon he gets obsessed and a rejection from the lady Sam leads to tread a path of a hacker entering all her life and exposing them before the world. So, what happens next, how Sam deals with him or will she bow before the obsession of this young hacker, it is interesting to check in the nearby cinema.
In the world of cyberspace where life is often vulnerable when we become the target of any hacker or cyber goons. They take our lives for a ride, which is the moot issue of this film. The film in terms of content and story sounds groundbreaking in many ways. Although the subject is an old concept in Hollywood with several movies hitting the screens and doing well, yet it happens to be a novel idea in B Town. Vikram Bhatt using a young man who is at the helm of an affair at the cybercrime called hacking seemed to have gone literally quadrupling.
The film is able to get a good kickstart, in the beginning, keeping the audience glued on their chairs. However, it loses them an audience with some slow pace in the middle losing the edge at times. The screenplay loses its edge all thanks to some dull sequences coming in the midst of the lead actors. Now, talking about the performances, Hina Khan is an accomplished actress and she has proved her skills in the small screen industry. Doing her debut with Hacked in Bollywood, she has done a decent job playing the role 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 before the camera. The direction part seemed good, yet not that effective to hold the audience in a big way giving even some flaws in its implementation. The music is okay, yet it has rooms for improvement so it is the camera work and the tracks that come out all of sudden from thin air. Overall these elements somewhere were seen coming slow and creepy thus hampering the entertainment value of the film in a big way.
Hacked The Last Word
The film revolves around a powerful concept and theme, yet it has limited reach confined to the educated youth. On the other side, with few flaws in star casts and other things, the film may not attract the audience in a big way. Yet it can be a good catch for a few.
