We have come across a lot of remakes in the recent times in Hindi cinema. All the star actors are running behind the remakes of popular hits from the south and many of them are ruining the soul of the films with unnecessary additions to it. This film is an exception, as the movie is directed by the same director, who helmed the original and was successful in making the movie engaging with his screenplay and narration. There are a very few changes made in the movie from the original.
Movie looks slow paced, yet the plot of the movie needs that kind of narration, that will slowly suck you into the details. Apart from a few dull moments here and there, first and later half of the movie look interesting at every point with minute details. The backstory of the main character is well dealt and the way director connected it to the case he is dealing with, makes it more interesting.
Rajkummar Rao once again excels in acting as Vicky, who is going through a trauma and has to handle the complicated case at the same time. Sanya Malhotra was decent with her limited role and screen presence. All other actors did their part for the film as needed.
Technically movie look very good. Manikandan was too good with his camera and the Color grading looks apt for the mood of the movie. Songs and Background score of the film are good. Garry could have edited a few scenes that look a little dragged in the first half of the movie. Director Sailesh Kolanu sticks to the soul and made a true remake of the original without any unnecessary add ons.
Finally, HIT – The First Case is an interesting thriller that has to be watched for it’s unique making and a hard hitting performance from the actor Rajkummar Rao.
