    Decent Thriller
    HIT is a well-made thriller that keeps you guessing till the end, a quality which today's whodunnits seem to have lost. The Rajkummar Rao and Sanya Malhotra-starrer is a throwback to old-school Bollywood thrillers that keep you glued to your seat throughout its 136-minute runtime.

    Director Sailesh Kolanu does well to build the ambience of a thriller, by slowly taking the audience into the dark world of twisted characters. He also tactfully infuses the personal story of his protagonist into the narrative, without deviating much from the core conflict of the film.

    The film's highlight and its biggest strength though is the performance of its lead actor - Rajkummar Rao. Rao has delivered a performance that's not only nuanced but also extremely refined. The varied emotions of loss, anger, grief, and frustration that he shows as Vikram tries to join the dots in this puzzle are simply amazing. Sanya Malhotra doesn't have much to offer as Neha. She goes missing half the time.

    Overall, HIT The First Case is a whodunnit story that will leave you guessing till the end. The build-up is impressive, the investigative part is mind-bending, and the performances are good. .

    Such a horrible plot
    The movie is so bad, dialogues are so childish. Actors have acted so horribly. Watched this movie for Rajkumar rao, but this is his worst work till date. This movie is almost funny rather than a thriller. Actors have not put in any efforts to act in this movie it seems. The plot changes after every 30 mins without any linkage for context. Watch this movie once to see how bad movies are made. Did not expect this from Rajkumar rao. Sanya malhotras character is very small in the movie. A dragged show which could have ended in 30 mins only. Cannot wait to watch how horribly part 2 will he shot. Omg 😳
