Hate Story - Preview
The story - beyond the lead lady turning into a prostitute - might still have worked, I can imaginably have given that much to the writers. But, the film that it has turned into is certainly well worth hating. From acting to music to pretty much everything else, Hate Story pushes your patience to the brink.

Hate Story has only one intention in mind - to titillate. At least that's what it looks like from the promo.
While director, Vivek Agnihotri's earlier film Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal rubbed in racism and jingoism, Hate Story seems to be using another 'sales tool' - sex and blatantly too. The story line reminded me of Laga Chunari Mein Daag - basically the lady having no other option but to sell her body. A little too convenient, is it not?
Hate Story just sounds and looks too in the face and as if the writer or director is lashing out in anger at someone. Though, I must say the cine-freak in me is really curious to know how a woman messes with a tycoon in the first place and then manages to take revenge from a person without changing identities/looks/anything at all.
The music as expected from a film of this genre and texture hasn't been received too well.
