“Just another revenge story that offers nothing new in terms of writing and filmmaking! The only thing that makes the film somewhat watchable is Paoli Dam, who manages to maintain the hotness quotient throughout.”

Paoli Dam, Sex and Gulshan Deviah were three reasons I was looking forward to Hate Story. It projected itself as an erotic thriller. My introduction to erotic thrillers happened during school days in the matinee shows at Pinky and Shaan. And the last erotic thriller I remember but havent seen that came out in Hindi cinema was Red Swastik starring Sherlyn Chopra. This one introduces Paoli Dam to the Hindi filmy duniya. She can be best described in one word for people who dont know her and that is Chatrak. Chatraks one scene is my only introduction to Paoli Dam and many of you will now Google chatrak if you have not seen or heard about it, NOW! Okay, now that you are back after googling lets talk Hate Story.
Whats it about? Kavya Krishna (Paoli Dam) fucks (metaphorically and literally) Siddharth Dhanrajgir (Gulshan Devaiah) but Sids philosophy in life is "I fuck the people who fuck with me" after realizing that she has been used Kavya decides main iss shaher ki top ki r*&di; bannna chahti hoon and thus begins her Hate Story.
How is it? - Not bad
My take If you are expecting an edgy, erotic and out of the box film you will be highly disappointed. The film is a regular revenge story which engages in parts especially when Paoli Dam is on screen with fewer clothes on. It takes too much time to set the story into motion but thankfully doesnt derail. The 2nd half is much better than the 1st. The erotica fizzles out thanks to the censor board and the makers playing it safe. Gulshan Devaiah works hard in carrying off his first full fledged role but this performance is way behind TGIYB, Dum Maaro Dum and Shaitan in that particular order. Vivek Agnihotri erases his past mistakes called Chocolate and Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal and starts a new innings with Hate Story. Wish he was bolder and riskier with this subject. Finally it is Paoli Dams show all the way. She is like a chameleon that can change colours from being vulnerable to looking extremely hot and sensuous.
Word of mouth Two words to flock to the theatres Paoli Dam.
