The film is about a setting in a flight from Goa to Delhi that is hijacked by some disgruntled workers of the airline, as they are unhappy with the owner. They are caught mid-air in this situation and are a high-on-drugs DJ, a crabby middle-aged couple and many other passengers. The DJ manages to drug the others on the flight as well and follows a bizarre sequence of events.

A DJ (Sumeet Vyas), who promises to rescue his father’s dispensary from penury by playing at a New Year’s gig in Goa, finds out that his has been duped and his plans have gone awry. The party is fake and he is left stranded in Goa with no money at all. During a night of intoxication, he decides to carry drugs with him on his flight back in exchange for money. To gain some confidence, he takes the drugs while on the flight. A hijack of the aircraft by the airline’s employees ensues with Vinit (Mantra) beginning a new mission. The plot is simple and the jokes are average.

The film feels like a drag, the track involves a middle-aged man, a Pakistan hater, who is having trouble with his wife. There are one-liners feature involving a ‘knock knock’ joke. It goes: “Knock! Knock!, Who’s there? Hi, Hi who, Hi-jack”.

High Jack is director by Akarsh Khurana and clearly set out to make a satire on political and social issues, but his movie’s narrative fails to take off. Sumeet Vyas has displayed comic chops in his earlier outings, he is good in his role but doesn’t have enough much matter to do justice to his role. Mantra is the leader of the hijackers has a limited range of expressions. We also see Kumud Mishra going long with a clichéd role.

The film’s music by an ensemble set of musicians, including Nucleya, manages to hit the right notes though. High Jack is advertised as a stoner comedy but this one’s average.
