Lot of us who've grown up on masala cinema of 1970s and 1980s will vividly recall two films made on ichhadhaari naagins - Rajkumar Kohli's 'Nagin'  and Harmesh Malhotra's 'Nagina' . Can we ever forget the revenge of the naagin? Can we ever forget the gripping plot, the spellbinding drama, the lilting music and of course, the unforgettable performances by Reena Roy and Sridevi, respectively?
When a film-maker attempts to make a film on an ichhadhaari naagin in 2010, the viewer expects to watch all of the above, besides great visual effects of course. More so because 'Hisss' is helmed by a Hollywood director - Jennifer Lynch. But, to put it bluntly, 'Hisss' is a nightmare. The film has absolutely nothing to offer - no story, no screenplay, no songs, no performances... even the making is so tacky.
The story is about the vengeance of an ichhadhaari naagin. George [Jeff Doucette], a ruthless American, travels to the jungles of India and captures her mate. She transforms into a woman [Mallika Sherawat] with absolutely no clue about contemporary civilization or the ways of mankind, and ventures into the city in desperate search for her lover with vengeance on her mind and venom in her fangs.
Vikram [Irrfan Khan] is entrusted the responsibility of solving the murders and tracking down the mysterious killer.
