Directed by renowned Hollywood film-maker Jennifer Lynch, Hisss has created quite a stir across the globe for its interesting amalgamation of the superstars of Bollywood and top technicians of the West.

Produced by Split Image Pictures Pvt Ltd and presented by Venus Records and Tapes Pvt Ltd, the film also stars renowned actor Irrfan Khan and the versatile Divya Dutta along with American actor Jeff Doucette in lead roles. The movie is about the vengeance of Naagin, the snake woman, whose mate is captured from the jungles of India by a ruthless American (Jeff Doucette). She transforms into a stunningly attractive woman (Mallika Sherawat) with absolutely no clue about contemporary civilisation or the ways of mankind, and ventures into the city in desperate search for her lover with vengeance on her mind and venom in her fangs.

What follows is a chase at breakneck speed, with horrifying deaths, narrow escapes and special effects never before seen in India.

Irrfan Khan, known for his power-packed performances, plays a detective on the hunt for the ruthless Naagin. Robert Kurtzman, make-up and special effects expert from Hollywood, whose previous works include films like Predators, Vanilla Sky, Spy Kids, Hulk etc, has worked his magic on the Naagin to create the most magnificent creatures of all time.

Packed with gripping performances and thrilling twists and turns, Hisss not only revisits the popular Naagin saga but also reveals the untold truth about this centuries-old legend in the most fascinating manner.

What’s more — the film’s soundtrack is as exciting as the film itself, with pioneering collaborations between the East and the West! Besides compositions from talented musicians like David Kushner, Panjabi MC, Alexander Von Bubenheim and LA Hip-Hop mogul Craig Nobles, Mallika Sherawat herself has lent her sexy voice to a song composed by Julian Lennon, a famous musician in his own right besides being the son of the late founder and member of The Beatles — John Lennon. Renowned Bollywood music composer Anu Malik has also composed a special Holi number for the film.

Produced by Vikram Singh, Govind Menon and William Sees Keenan and co-produced by Ratan Jain, Hisss is slated for release on October 22.
