The season of comedies seems to have come to an end. It is now time for some fast paced action, with Shiney Ahujaís next release ĎHijackí, directed by Kunal Shivdasani and produced by Dinesh Vijan. The film is presented under the banner ĎEros Internationalí. For ĎHijackí, Kumaar has provided the lyrics to the music of Justin-Uday.
Hijack is the story of Vikram Madanís (Shiney Ahuja) life. Vikram Madan is a ground maintenance officer at the Chandigarh airport. Rajeev, the security chief of the airport, is his one and only friend. As luck would have it, the flight in which Vikramís daughter is traveling to Amritsar from Delhi, is hijacked. A group of six terrorists takes control of the airplane to secure release of Rasheed (KK Raina) who had been captured by the Indian police. They threaten to kill the hostages otherwise. The flight is forced to land at Chandigarh airport. Vikram sneaks into the aircraft with the help of Saira (Esha Deol), an airhostess. What follows is one manís fight against international terrorists.

Kunalís execution of the film is well crafted. The high-octane drama inside and outside the aircraft gives us the feeling of some Hollywood flicks.
Though the film is not lengthy as such but the script could have been made a bit shorter by avoiding other passengerís intro and few rapid songs too. Also, Shiney's character could've been made better by making it less heroic but as itís a bollywood movie hero can do anything single-handedly. Besides, the passengers in the aircraft failed to create the panic atmosphere convincingly. Kunal could have cast better/stronger actors instead of amateurs, to make the impact stronger.
On the whole Hijack is one time watch engrossing movie. Second half of the film is more enjoyable than first half.
Bollycurry rating: 2 and Ĺ chillies out of 5. Hijack is a riveting thriller!
