No Thanks Brother!

A peon (Salman) discovers drugs in the package he's delivering for his boss. Being loyal, he informs the latter of this, only to realize that his beloved boss (Shakti Kapoor) is actually a drug lord. To guard his dark secret, Kapoor kills Salman. His heart is donated to a police officer who was shot in an encounter(Arbaaz Khan). He thus returns as a ghost and haunts Arbaaz, so the latter can help bring his murderer to justice.

The plot sounds promising enough, but due to too much slapstick humor, bad scripting and bad directing, Hello Brother fails to impress. Fairly good acting by Rani and Arbaaz, but Salman irritates to the core. He keeps on rambling in a high-pitched voice! God, tell him to stop already.

The songs aren't too bad, but Teri Chunariya sounds highly similar to Odh Li Chunariya from Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya. For some reason, Rani doesn't look as gorgeous as she normally does, in this film. I guess it's just the bad script getting to her.
