Hello has been buzzing around the circuits for quite a while now. Based on Chetan Bhagat’s ‘One Night at a Call Centre’ it stars Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sohail Khan, and Sharman Joshi. With an undermine of comedy and a style statement to the film, Hello has promised to be a thrilling joyride. What we are here to find out — as with all other movies — is if it has lived up to the expectations.
The starting of this film is “bang” on with a shirtless and stylish Salman dancing to a zingy number ‘Bang Bang’. As it extends, you start to get a good feeling that hopefully this one will not let you down. Salman Khan character meets a mysterious, beautiful woman, played by Katrina Kaif, who promises him a story on the condition of him continuing it further. Hmmm…interesting. You’re feeling quite good now. You’re actually enjoying it. It isn’t an Abbas-Mustan with a new twist in every fifteen minutes nor is it a Yash Raj with classic fights and dialogues. It is simply an original Atul Agnihotri.
Hello is like a duo-track movie. It’s a story running along within another story. You can’t really come to the main plot because it has many parallel sub-plots.
Shyam’s (Sharman Joshi)girlfriend, Priyanka (Gul Panag), is leaving him because of his flailing career. She herself wants to marry an NRI instead. Touch
