The First Case, Hit Movie Review: Rajkummar Rao gives this plodding murder mystery gravitas

Story: As two women go missing in enigmatic circumstances, HIT (Homicide Intervention Team) detective Vikram (Rajkummar Rao), who is haunted by memories of a tragic past, is compelled to put his personal conflicts on hold. College student Preeti vanishes after her car breaks down on a highway in Jaipur, and Vikram’s forensic analyst girlfriend Neha (Sanya Malhotra) is also missing to be found. Are the two cases related, and who is responsible?

Review: Lately, protagonists in South films have tended to be disturbed geniuses who smoke chains, and this remake is no exception. Vikram (Rajkummar Rao) is a great investigator who suffers from panic attacks despite his persistent nightmares and PTSD. If estranged boyfriend Arjun Reddy (Vijay Deverakonda) was a high-functioning alcoholic surgeon, Vikram (Rajkummar Rao) is a panic attack sufferer who thrives at work. HIT, however, does not exalt the suffering of its hero. Despite his talent, it takes guts to admit that he is “unfit” for his investigative field job. Vikram’s deductive reasoning abilities and sense of silent heroism, which are rooted in agony, keep you interested, if not on the edge of your seat.

Sailesh Kolanu remakes his film in Hindi with a different cast and setting two years after the Telugu original of the same name. The police drama now takes place in Rajasthan rather than Telangana. With the exception of changing the climax, Kolanu keeps the names of the characters and even the plot. This adjustment seemed obvious given how quickly whodunnit spoilers may be disseminated. Since Vikram’s past trauma has not been exposed, expect this drama to have additional sequels.

While largely avoiding stereotypes, HIT also falls victim to them. For example, a sweet love song must be followed by the lead actress experiencing some sort of devastating event. Although the treatment is straightforward and sincere, it doesn’t convert into a gripping, gritty thriller. The movie is more of a leisurely, meandering murder mystery with a captivating build-up but an underwhelming conclusion. As we become accustomed to Kolanu’s chaotic world, the tension increases. The events building up to the major disclosure don’t fully make sense, and the plot fails to wrap up the loose ends. With multiple suspects at play, the motive of the one guilty feels ludicrous and far-fetched. The gay track and the unpredictable first half are let down by the silly climax.

The proceedings are given weight by aerial vistas of the highway, ambiguous looks, Vikram’s uneasiness, and his destructive connection with an insecure coworker (Jatin Goswami). Rajkummar Rao gives the plodding crime tale gravity. He has the talent to transcend a disjointed writing, and he does it again here. Despite your mistakes, he makes sure you are on his team. HIT tends to be hit-and-miss.

At an event, Rupali Ganguly touches an experienced journalist’s foot, to which the audience responds, “Success has not changed her.”

Actress Rupali Ganguly is gaining popularity online after a video of her from an event went viral. The Anupamaa actress appeared to present veteran journalist Chaitanya Padukone with an award at the Expandable Awards. She touched his feet after presenting him with the prize and introduced her on-screen persona to the audience.

Rupali wore a purple sari with shine to the occasion. She knelt down in the video and brushed the journalist’s feet, asking for his blessing. Chaitanya appeared overwhelmed in reaction. An account belonging to a paparazzi has uploaded the video.

“Rupali is extremely down to earth,” a user commented in response to it in the comment area. Success hasn’t altered her because she was raised by the fantastic director and all-around positive person Anil Ganguly, whose home she grew up in. I grew up watching all of his movies, so that is undoubtedly where it all begins. Another person said, “Ise bolte hain Asli Sanskaar (this is referred to as authentic culture)”

“That’s why Rupali mam is so successful and widely known, down to earth and never leave her root,” another person added. Rupali was referred to as “grace” by filmmaker Ram Kamal Mukherjee in the comments section.

Rupali began her acting career as a child performer and later achieved recognition as the lead in the television series Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai, in which Ratna Pathak Shah co-starred as Monisha Sarabhai. She later became a celebrity of television programmes like Baa Bahoo Aur Baby and Parvarrish – Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi.

Currently, Rupali is portraying the Gujarati homemaker Anupamaa in the lead character of the television series Anupamaa. It is one of the most watched serials on Star Plus. Rupali recently shared her thoughts on the show in response to complaints from viewers regarding the length of her monologues.

She said, “Fans ki baatein sar aankhon par (I will always put my fans’ needs first)” to Pinkvilla. My creators are quite aware of the message they want to get across with Anupamaa. Regardless of what he (producer Rajan Shahi) has envisioned for Anupamaa to do, I shall strive to express it with all of my passion. I’ll give it my all and do it to the best of my skills.
