Hyper has ended up as a below average to average fare in the tryst of striking a balance between that message and commercial elements. The movie may be a one time watch at best and too with the mass audience. The commerce will depend on how it cashes the Dussehra holiday season.

Narayana Murthy (Sathyaraj) is an honest Government Official and then there is his son Surya (Ram) who is so obsessed of his father and does anything and everything for him. A Corrupt Minister Rajappa (Rao Ramesh) is after Narayana Murthy to get a file signed and the latter refuses that. While the minister tries to meddle with Narayana Murthy's family, Surya enters the scene for his father and saves him from this chaos.
Surya is a role etched keeping Ram in mind and obviously he walks through it effortlessly. But then these kind of roles are getting repetitive and making the audience bored. He is best suited for lover boy roles and this urge for Mass image is not helping him. Rashi Khanna does what she is best at, setting the screen on fire with her glamour. She is only confined to the songs. Rao Ramesh is a good selection for the minister role but then the comedy touch to his character in the second half makes it too loud. Sathyaraj is a perfect fit for the role of a middle-class father and an honest Government official. Posani Krishna Murali, Sayaji Shinde, and K.Viswanadh are seen in special characters and they are okay. Hero's sister, Hero mother (Tulasi) are bad choices.
Hyper has got a cliched story. The only novel point it has is the hero's over obsession with his father. Then there is a social message point about the corruption but the director Santosh Srinivas made it a damp squid by trying to blend with the commercial elements. The comedy scenes to establish Surya's character look silly while the love track is totally disappointing. The social message is just confined to Sathyaraj's lecture about the importance government officers of being honest and the perils of corruption.
Except for two songs, the music composed by Ghibran is disappointing. Mani Sharma's background score is also not that effective. Sameer Reddy managed to capture some very good visuals of Vishakapatnam. Dialogues penned by Santosh Srinivas are good here and there. Production Values by 14 Reels Entertainment are too good.
Finally, Hyper has ended up as a below average to average fare in the tryst of striking a balance between that message and commercial elements. The movie may be a one time watch at best and too with the mass audience. The commerce will depend on how it cashes the Dussehra holiday season.
