A revenge story where two brothers fall for the same girl.
Vishal Pandya and his team, the makers of the ‘Hate Story’ series are back with their latest installment titled ‘Hate Story IV’ starring Urvashi Rautela and Ihana Dhillon alongside Vivan Bhatena and Karan Wahi. Fourth franchise is the story of a girl who causes a rift between two brothers. Film is already making waves online for its bold and sensual content and thankfully the film has enough steamy scenes along with thrills minus dialogues. Execution of the film has been kept simple. Hate Story IV excels in department of screenplay as it ensures the content of the film remains full masala entertainment. Makers have made the film Hinglish (Half English and Half Hindi) with definitely not suitable subtitles. Urvashi Rautela has shown enough oomph factor and has improved in her acting than her previous 3 films. Karan Wahi looks dashing and does a decent job. Music of HATE STORY IV by Bawara Brothers (Sameer and Idner) is well woven; ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ being the best and having 50+ million views on YouTube channel. Cinematography is neat and the film has been shot in some beautiful places and houses of England. On the whole, watch this installment only if you are an hardcore follower of the franchise, else it’s not a good pick this weekend.
Melodious Music and Titillating Scenes makes Hate Story IV worth of its genre. It is very clear that such film will have a fan base of its own. Watch this installment only if you are an hardcore follower of the franchise, else it’s not a good pick this weekend.
