Did Mallika Sherawat really make Jennifer Lynch’s life hell?

The director of Hisss has passed the blame of her film’s debacle on to her leading lady, who herself has moved on to happier things

Directed by Jennifer Lynch, the Mallika Sherawat-Irrfan-starrer Hisss sank without a trace back in 2010. Because Jennifer’s dad David Lynch is a highly respected filmmaker, there were huge expectations of his daughter work too. Nothing of that sort happened and the film was soon forgotten as a bad experience by critics and audiences alike, as well as by the lead star, Mallika. We are not sure how much the film affected the main actors, but the director had to face a lot of flak for coming up with an uninspiring project.

It has been two years since the film released and now we hear that the director of Hisss is releasing a documentary in her defence. We don’t know what triggered this move, but it seems like a huge waste of time, in our collective opinion. What’s the point of making a documentary about a film which hardly found any takers? In the trailer of the documentary we heard Jennifer say unpleasant things about Mallika and she sounded very condescending, to put it mildly. Many are speculating that the bad buzz is what affected Mallika’s chances in Hollywood and the debacle of Hisss is one of the main reasons why the Sherawat babe is back to finding work in B-town.

What irked us was that instead of wasting her time making a documentary defending her ‘magnum opus’ that she thinks didn’t work because of her actors and their associated nakhras, Lynch should have invested her time and effort in making another film, one that is far better than her previous flop. We don’t see any reason why anybody would be interested in watching anything more to do with Hisss. We hope the forty-year-old filmmaker forgets about the nightmare of a movie project she was involved with and stops cashing in on the debacle! Or is that one way to make up for that very debacle?

Of course, this leads us to think another thought, and a nicely wicked one. With Ramgopal Varma’s penchant for imitation – hardly in a flattering way – will we next see a docu-film on the making of the trauma that was Ramgopal Varma Ki Aag?

    This article is wrong on almost every level. The doc was not made (or released) by Jennifer Lynch, but by a woman who was hired on to do behind the scenes special feature for HISSS, which then evolved into a documentary about Lynch’s trials during the shooting of the film in various locations in India and her eventual removal from the project. There is no slander to the Bollywood star, Sherawat, or even to India.

    Making films is a difficult undertaking, and things don’t always work out, that is what this documentary is about.

    It is amusing how a lot of Bollywood publications and news outlets are going for sensation and speculation over fact on this one.

      Hi Kurt,

      Bollywood always go for sensation & speculation instead of factual. The point is Bollywood films are the same in sensation & steering clear of social realism. Malika is not an Actress because she cannot act, it really is that simple. Too much ego & arrogance surrounds deluded wannabees.

      Indian media are very biased towards the so called less than useless celebrities so for someone like Jennifer Lynch to come in & make a film her way & if it was a success then it’s down to Bollywood Actors & if it fails like it did then it’s Jennifer’s fault.
