HISSS has nothing extraordinary to show except some visual effects that are not up to the mark compared to other films of this genre.
An American hunter George (Jeff Doucette) comes to India in search of a cobra as he believes that it has cure for cancer. He captures the snake and kills it which enrages its mate (Mallika Sherawat). She transforms into a human female and her anger unleashes mindless deaths. Vikram Gupta (Irrfan Khan) is given the assignment to catch the killer. The rest of the story deals with the unraveling of the mystery of the snake woman.
With a poor story line, Mallika Sherawat has nothing much to do except some bare acts. Irrfan is good but fades out in a poorly etched role. Jeff Douchette tries hard but unimpressive. All others just go through their motions.
A very weak story, hampered by a loose screenplay makes the film yawn and fret. E ven director Jennifer Lynch cannot make anything worthwhile to see in the film. The special effects do not appear to be very special at all and fade away in the mediocrity of the total film. Cinematography and audiography also do not make much of an impression.
Hisss can safely be given a miss.
