Hate Story 4 is the fourth film of the franchise “Hate Story” and is hitting the theaters this Friday. Like the previous three films of the series, the film is an erotic thriller. And nowadays, there is an increasing trend of this genre and also it enjoys a healthy response from the audience. Also, these types of films are getting a good amount of screens in the theaters as compared to earlier times. Let’s discuss the merits and demerits of the film:

Urvashi Rautela in Hate Story 4

Hate Story 4 created a lot of buzz because of its erotic posters and over 35 million people viewed its trailer. However, the trailer for the film showed mostly erotic content and its storyline seemed to walk on the same path like the previous films of the same franchise.


This is the first women-centric film of Urvashi Rautela but she failed to do justice to her role. Urvashi performed wonderfully in bold scenes and dancing moves but other than that she could not manage to give good expressions in the film. The famous tv actor, Karan Wahi has an image of an innocent guy and he is not fitting in his role in the film.

The music of the movie is very good which is the specialty of the Hate Story franchise. The new versions of the two old songs “Aashiq Banaya Aapne” and “Naam Hai Tera” are simply amazing. Other songs are average in terms of their composition.


The Director, Vishal Pandya should have tried a different strategy than the same old style like in many erotic thrillers. The film is slow on many occasions for no reason. Vishal Pandya could have made it better in its direction by introducing some unique elements in the film.

Story & Script

There is nothing new in the script and also the storyline of the film is very predictable. It’s that in spite of 2 men and one woman, this time it is two men and two women. The story could have made more interesting to introduce new twists in the movie.

Overall, we can say that it’s below average performances by the actors and the concept of the film is similar to other erotic films. So, Hate Story 4 is an average film to watch this Friday.
