Hit the first case Netflix release
Rajkumar Rao is back with his new movie “HIT: The first case.” Rajkumar has always done films of different genres in his career, is always seen as a path-breaking actor, and is popular among the masses. Sanya Malhotra is cast opposite Rajkumar Rao. The movie will be released on OTT Netflix on August 28, 2022.
It is the remake of the Telugu movie of the same name. Debutant Sailesh Kolanu directed the Telugu movieland. The lead pairs of the Telugu movie were Vishwak Sen and Ruhani Sharma. The Telugu version was released in theatres on February 28, 2020, and was declared a hit. The Telugu version was followed by a sequel, “HIT: The second case.” Kolanu directed the Hindi remake of the first part. Both the Telugu sequel and Hindi remakes were released in July 2022.
The Hindi version didn’t do well theatrically and had terrible numbers. Somehow the Hindi version seems to be lacking the bite of the Telugu version. It must be seen if the movie does well on the OTT platform. Rajkumar Rao’s movie is a suspense thriller.
Rajkumar is playing the role of the 32-year-old cop, Vikram Jaisingh, and is working in the Homicide Intervention Team of Rajasthan. He is having mental health issues due to his past. His family, friends, and girlfriends are with him in this, and they advise him to take a break and heal himself. But suddenly, an 18-year-old girl named Preethi gets missing mysteriously on the Jaipur road. Vikram is given the task of finding the missing girl. He realizes that this case has a personal connection to him. He has to step in and solve the issue while having panic attacks and anxiety while solving the problem. Sanya Malhotra plays her role beautifully.
The movie is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Dil Raju, Krishnan Kumar, and Kuldeep Rathore. Girish Kohli wrote Sailesh Kolanu does the dialogues and the screenplay. The movie was shooted in India only, and the music was taken care of by T-Series. It remains to be seen how the film does on OTT.
