Storyline

This energetic black comedy (or drama with a sense of humour) turns a contemporary eye on something that is taken too much for granted in Indian cities, especially Mumbai - private space. It's about the clash between a stockbroker who is not allowed to sleep at night and a small-time trader who won't let him (as the secretary of the building society they live in). This seemingly trivial, even laughable, problem eventually snowballs into disasters for both of them and their families, while unspooling the attitudes of people around them. A very real but highly entertaining portrait of urban India. Written by Cartwheel, India

Hulla a movie that could've been better
30 November 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Hulla a typical movie made for the multiplex audience with a touch of humor with an uninspired climax. Hulla is story of a Stock Broker Agent Raj Puri played by Shushant Singh of "Legend of Bhagat Singh" fame who has moved into a new flat with his wife but gets frustrated and looses his cool due to numerous incidents thats keep happening in his apartment.

This Movie starts off well and goes on pretty smoothly till about 40 Min's keeping the audience glued with some one liners but looses its way right when you cross the 40min mark. Though the movie has its bit of good acting seen with Kartika Rane, Rajat Kapoor and Vrajesh Hirjee. Its got to be Kartika Rane who plays Abha the wife of Raj Puri who actually seems pretty pleasant on-screen. Not to forget some decent acting by the watchman played by Chandrachood Karnik. Got to mention, the music is by Indian Ocean which doesn't the suit the movie theme or even the movie's pace. I guess Indian Ocean are far better on Stages. The movie has a pretty depressing second half and ruining the audience's respect for the movie with some total unusual ending which actually shows you the loopholes of the story. Jaideep Verma the director could've done a far better job than what his end product of Hulla is. I would say its definitely a watchable movie. Watch it with no expectation and you won't repent spending your precious 110 Min's.
