Storyline

Hello... is a tale about the events that happen one night at a call center. Told through the views of the protagonist, Shyam, it is a story of almost lost love, thwarted ambitions, absence of family affection, pressures of a patriarchal set up, and the work environment of a globalized office. Shyam is losing his girl friend because his career is going nowhere as he trudges his way around in a call center. His girl friend, Priyanka, is also an agent like him at the call center who is about to be snatched by an NRI technogeek. There is also the aspiring model, Esha, who is hoping for the break that seems to be always already eluding her and the man about town, Vroom, who is into well, things. The housewife, Radhika, who is constantly at the receiving end of her mother-in-law and a beleaguered grandfather, Military Uncle, who has been barred from interacting with his grandchild make up the rest of the call agents who see their worlds crumbling around them as the decisions of right sizing...

Very highly Recommended!!
11 January 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I saw this film tonight in London and the theatre was packed. Within the first 30 minutes I could understand why. What a wonderful Indian film after a long long time!! Very well made. Very punchy, funny and realistic. Good performances by everyone especially Sharman Joshi and Sohail Khan. The character casting is excellent. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in a cameo are great. One of the rare Indian productions where the jokes were effortlessly funny. Music is great and so are the songs. Songs are panned out well and do not stand out as in most other Indian films. Song likes Rab Ka Banda, Karle Baby Dance Wance are really well shot...Rab Ka Banda actually makes one speechless.... Very touching and refreshing film. Very highly Recommended!!
