10:56 AM: Kavya (Paoli) joins Siddharth's (Gulshan) company and leaves behind the profession that helped her expose his company. @paoli_d #HateStory
10:58 AM: 'I f*** the people who f*** with me,' shouts Gulshan. A steamy, semi nude bath scene ends horribly #hatestory
10:59 AM: Six f***s in a sentence brings on a resounding repeat of the word from rows at the back #HateStory #TweetReview
11:01 AM: The mellifluous song 'dil kaanch sa' brings on the kahaani mein twist. A pregnant Kavya confronts her tormentor Siddharth Dhanrajgir.
11:02 AM: "Nurse isse aisa kar do ke ye kabhi maa na ban paye!" #HateStory #TweetReview
11:08 AM: The dusky @paoli_d looks sexy as hell in #HateStory. This is not about exploring sexuality. It's about power games. #TweetReview
11:12 AM: "Kya chahiye tereko? Aap ke kothe ke sabse mehngi r***. " The dialogue will make you cringe. A storm of whistles.
11:15 AM: "Shake it, take it and fake it" - the mantra Kavya embraces. Want to sympathize but the urge to laugh overpowers. #HateStory
11:22 AM: #HateStory is getting interesting. The road to revenge is paved and ready. #TweetReview
11:26 AM: Loving the dialogues of #HateStory. So outrageously over-the-top that they actually work for the film. #TweetReview

11:36 AM: Interval sum-up: #HateStory in first half sets the ball rolling on what promises to be a revenge saga. Gulshan impresses. @vivekagnihotri
11:38 AM: Interval: Too bad so far Nikhil has such a bit role. He's an underrated actor. Paoli overacts. But will they keep the pace? Let's see.
11:41 AM: What drives a woman to prostitution? Betrayal? Denial of motherhood? Passion? Greed? #HateStory #TweetReview
11:54 AM: Never discuss your business deals in bed - moral of #HateStory. Especially not when there's a spycam watching you!! #TweetReview
12:01 PM: Kavya in jail, as a top official of the company is found murdered. Did she not think this through? Plot thickens. #HateStory #TweetReview
12:05 PM: Don't want to nitpick but how does the woman have access to makeup during 14-day remand? Attention to details please #HateStory #TweetReview
12:09 PM: "Politics is the second oldest profession next to you know what." - Hate Story
12:22 PM: Finally!! Some intense scenes with Nikhil as the silent lover Vicky. His settling influence balances some of the loud acting. #HateStory
12:25 PM: At the end a friend and lover comes to the rescue of Kavya. #HateStory #TweetReview
12:29 PM: The movie winds down to this moment. Nikhil Dwivedi's fight scene. Will Kavya be able to reach the AGM on time? #HateStory #TweetReview
12:39 PM: Not Paoli but Gulshan takes the climax. Hamming it a bit but one of the few faces that keeps the audience gripped. #HateStory #TweetReview
12:40 PM: Where Hate Story ends, a new story starts? #TweetReview
12:53 PM: To sum up the good and bad of Hate Story. First the bad: Loud acting mars some good moments. Paoli has to brush up her acting skills.
12:59 PM: The overall story lacks coherance. But Hate Story has some standalone performances by Gulshan and Nikhil. And a brilliant background score.
1:01 PM: If you watch Hate Story with a lot of expectations about it being an erotic thriller you are bound to be disappointed. #Review
1:03 PM: The sexual overtone is just a subplot of a revenge thriller. #HateStory
1:05 PM: Thanks for being with us throughout #HateStory. Don't miss the Vicky Donor and Mirror Mirror reviews coming up soon.
