Hisss Not Director’s Cut

Jennifer Lynch who’s getting all the brickbats for bad direction, clarifies that the project was taken away from her much before the pre-production stage.

Hisss not the director's cutA source close to the project says, “What Jennifer shot is very different from what we finally see in Hisss.”

The film’s co-producer Govind Menon, who has directed duds like Khwahish and Kiss Kiss Ki Kismat, decided to don the editor’s cap and did not let Lynch do the editing.

Said Jennifer Lynch, “Hisss was taken away from me in the edit. I have no idea what the film looks like. I came close to a directors’ cut, which Mallika, Venus and producers (Govind Menon and Vikram Singh) referred to as ‘European, languid and sensual’ all the things I thought were compliments. Apparently, that did not make them happy. I have no idea what is out there. Good or bad, I cannot take credit for it. Aside from shots and performances that I pray have not been butchered.”

Jennifer wanted to make the film a love story. She added, “They took the songs out; they wanted more horror.”
