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

Great Beginning but Bad Finish
3 June 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rarely one gets to see such a simple movie being made, about simple problems of life. "Hulla" is one such story. Débutante director and writer Jaideep Verma tries to woo the audience with a simple story of a mumbai man, whose cannot sleep because the security man would not stop making noise. The subject is one which is sure to interest the urban people, specially in Mumbai. He does make a great beginning and you smile and laugh as well. But despite the excellent actors, the movie goes no where after the first hour. You keep on seeing the same thing again and again. The dialogs of Rajat Kapoor and Sushant Singh go from bad to worse. There could have been so much portrayed but the writer ,J.Verma surely fails the director, J.Verma. So in the end, yes the movie does give you some smiles but the final 1 hour leaves you bewildered.
