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...Written by

None from my family were that keen about this film. I myself preferred watching a movie directed by Sanjay Gadvi instead of this and didn't pay much heed to this film.
I was taken aback after my friends saw it and told me that its a must watch and then, my family decided to watch this movie on the big screen. I yet was ambivalent whether it would live up to my expectations, after watching preposterously bad films like Drona, Kidnap etc. I myself admit that I am harsh as a critic and most of my reviews, whether Bollywood or Hollywood, are somewhat criticizing the film in some or the other way. I never go with very high expectations just as a 'normal person', without any feelings to review my feelings after watching the movie and after I left the theater, I was happy and that meant, that the movie was good. I am afraid that I might give away some important details of the movie deliberately; therefore, I am not going into the story details. I will first mention the points that I liked in the movie:
1) The performances of all the characters were strong. Especially Sharman Joshi,Gul Panag,Sohail Khan and Amrita Arora. Salman Khan played his role very well and looked very handsome.
2) The humor was good in this film. Sohail Khan has good comedy timing while Sharmans expressions just makes anyone laugh, especially in the first half. I even liked the character of small Sharman called as Devil... he was really funny and it was humorous to watch him get agitated by you'll know when you watch the movie.
3) The first half was really good, witty and humorous as the audience didn't get bored or didn't feel to leave their seats.
4) The songs were a mixture of catchy and melodious. 'Bang Bang Bang' and 'Hello Hello Hello' were really good songs while the others too were decent.
5) The camera effects were amazing and I felt that the editing was good. Now, in one paragraph, I will explain the flaws in this movie. i thought it was little short...
Overall, it was a relief to watch this movie as I was relieved from a state of shock after watching the abominable film Drona. But I didn't feel that I could watch it for the second tome immediately after leaving the theater and even after a few days after watching the film.
