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...

say hello hello hello
11 January 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

OK... let me start off by saying HATS OFF Mr Atul Agnihotri and Chetan Bhagat!!! YOU ARE GR8!!! Now for the rest. VERY IMPRESSIVE! Sohail Khan has left me stunned.Esha Koppikhar has improved her performance a hundredfold since her film Kyaa Kool Hai Hum. Gul Panag was brilliant! Last i was her in the film Dor , and I never expected she was so good! Sharaat Saxena unexpectedly looks gr8 in his small role. The other characters life Amrita Arrora and Sharman Joshi also gave a decent performance! The story is simple. The name says it all - Hello is about life of six people working in a call center.. and how their life takes a u turn when they receive a phone call from God.

The climax is like many other films, but in a very unique manner! the film keeps you involved till the end. The characters successfully cast a charm on you and you can actually feel as they do. Some parts will really make you smile and laugh, while others will make you feel great.

The music also adds to the fun, friendship, and fun. The touchy script succeeds, cinematography and editing is good, choreography pretty good, and, all-in-all, one must- watch performance. A great start for Chetan Bhagat and a great No. 2 for Atul Agnihotri. Way to go Atul, Your amazing!

Easily an 8/10.

Go for it!

And I assure you, there's no heavy display of sad emotions. So you won't be crying at any point of time!
