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...

Hello is a well made film
11 January 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This was one movie that I was waiting for very eagerly!

Carry a pack of pop corn and cans of cold drink and enjoy this film with friends ,it has everything , starting from bang bang song( super six pack Salman dance number) , humor , sympathy , thrill , romance , revenge and what not and not to mention director Atul Agnihotri was the captain of all these departments . Out of so many positive things the most important thing is the story line, which is very gripping and entertaining....

Salman's hard work on his body paid off , he really danced well on the song bang bang which has good production values....

The Picturisation and the music was excellent...Their something happening in every scene of the movie and you don't get bored or look at your watch, script is strong. Performances are strong too....

Though the film was based on the novel one night @ the call center and people knew about the plot still it was enjoyable

In a nutshell its a books idea; Bollywood Masala film

I am giving Hello 9/10
