How would you feel if someone has an eye on you 24*7? What would you do if you come to know that your every personal, as well as professional move, is being monitored by a person? Terrifying, right? This is what Hina Khan feels in her recently released debut movie 'Hacked'.
'Hacked' is a psychological thriller directed by Vikram Bhatt which reveals the horrors of cybercrime including hacking and stalking. A 19-year-old boy (Rohan Shah) falls in love with an older woman (Hina Khan) who is married. When Hina realizes the boy's feelings, she instantly refrains him to be around her and then starts his obsession with her.
His fixation with the woman reaches a height where he ends up hacking every technological source around her, thus, virtually following her everywhere. His anger knows no bounds when he sees his "love" with someone else and that is where he decides to blackmail her for "sex". Hina is not the only victim of his madness, another star has also been used by him sexually after he records all her private and personal moments.
How Hina fights with the psycho teenager is what the story follows. The movie has opted for an unusual storyline that has not been dealt with much in Bollywood. It aims at alerting people from such cyber horrors and speak up against it rather than being muted and compromising.
With 'Hacked', Hina Khan delivers a promising future in the industry. She is one of the biggest television stars who has proved her mettle of acting through the famous role of Akshara in the daily soap 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai'. Her stardom then increased after she came in the controversial show 'Bigg Boss 11' and even though she lost to another TV bahu Shilpa Shina, she was definitely the USP of the game.
Hina Khan's performance in her debut movie defines bravery and excellence. While no one had doubts about her caliber, hopping from TV to the movie industry would seem scary but Khan passed with flying colors.
Rohan Shah as the psycho 19-year-old also gives a brilliant performance. Just like Hina, he has also been a TV child-actor and has acted on various web platforms. His performance remains successful in making you scared of such personalities.
Besides Hina and Rohan, the movie also features Sid Makkar and Mohit Malhotra in prominent roles. The Vikram Bhatt directorial hits the theatre along with Mohit Suri's 'Malang' but has got lesser screens all over India.
Ratings: 3/5 stars.
