Hello Movie Review
Hello was released on October 10 and is based on the famous book One Night at the Call Center by Chetan Bhagat. The promotional videos of the movie mainly showed Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. But to everyone’s disappointment, both Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are only in special appearances in the movie. The story is of six call center executives – Shyam/Agent Sam (Sharman Joshi), Varun/Vroom (Sohail Khan), Radhika (Amrita Arora), Eesha (Eesha Koppikar), Priyanka (Gul Panag) and Military Uncle/VP Chauhan (Sharat Saxena) who have been in the same call center for six years. Their boss Mr Bakshi (Dalip Tahil) is hated by all of them. The story revolves around their personal lives and struggles for most of the movie and it is only towards the end that they receive a call from God. The story is a bit messed up and the screenplay is very weak.
The actors and actresses in the movie have done a decent job though Sharman Joshi has done considerably better than the rest. The book is good for reading but the adaptation of Chetan’s Bhagat’s book by Atul Agnihotri is average.
I would give this movie a rating of 2.5/5.
