HIT – First Case Review (Hindi): Plot Summary

Vikram (Rajkummar Rao) is a Homicide Squad officer in Rajasthan, with an extremely traumatic past. Past traumas harm his health and affect his work. Despite pleas from his doctor and his girlfriend Neha (Sanya Malhotra), Vikram doesn’t want to quit his job. He decides to take 3 months vacation instead.

When Vikram leaves, a girl named Preeti goes missing and the case is taken to HIT. Neha, who finds a clue in her case, also disappears. Vikram must abruptly end his vacation and return to work on the case. Every person, including him, is a suspect with motive. We sit till the end and keep guessing who the culprit might be.

HIT The first case study: discussion and performance

An accumulation of events is crucial in a thriller, especially in a Whodunnit story. Director Sailesh Kolanu manages to create that first-half buildup with his solid and intriguing script. The main criminal event takes a while to happen. But when it does, you’re eager to know what happened, how it happened, why it happened, and most importantly, who did it.

The narrative becomes more complex in the second half, and I say that positively. We are left to speculate as to what must have actually happened. When Vikram delves into the case of the missing girl, we discover unexpected information about her background, secrets are revealed, and the list of suspects keeps growing.

Kolanu manages to fully absorb us into the suspenseful plot until it becomes monotonous. The second half suffered from the tension in the build-up, which grew tiresome after a while. They created the tension in order to trap us in the story. But crime story fans like me will eventually guess the author before Vikram even finds out.

Therefore, even when twist after twist occurs, I was not surprised. But I was interested in the motive of the person. Thankfully, the reveal element makes up for the overloaded investigative part. I was thrilled by the series of unfortunate events that led to the crime.

But the title suggests that this is the first case. So even when the story is over, it’s not really over.

Rajkummar Rao as Officer Vikram, went through so much trauma in the movie. We don’t really learn about his past. But the flashbacks he continues to have seem painful. The investigation into the missing girl and Neha only adds to the deaths he has witnessed in person. Well, there’s another huge pile of traumas added to his TRAUMAS list.

Hit the first case 2 more

There are a lot of emotions that Vikram goes through – anger, fear, pain, loss and, well, traumatic events. Rajkummar Rao is terrific in HIT – The First Case. It’s easy for an actor like him to pull off such difficult roles because he’s extremely talented.

Sanya Malhotra doesn’t have much to offer as Neha. She disappears half the time. Her character reminded me of Kiara Advani in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. We meet her at the beginning and at the end. Sanya is a fantastic actor who deserves better roles and more screen space.

HIT The First Case Review: Final Thoughts

Globally, HIT the first case is a thriller story that will keep you guessing until the end. The accumulation is impressive, the investigation part is mind-blowing and the performances are good. If the second half had been cut a bit short, it wouldn’t have revealed the culprit for me. But did I enjoy sitting in the room eagerly to find out what happened? YES!
