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
Chandrachood Karnik debuts in the film at the age of 79. He was the most enthusiastic member of the cast and crew, the most punctual and the liveliest. Mr Karnik is well known for essaying the role of the MTV lift-man a few years ago. This is his first feature film. See more »
HULLA makes you whistle intermittently
Incidents that affect a common man in a metropolis are slowly making their way on the Hindi screen. In HULLA, it's a whistle that blows things out of proportion. Who would've thought of making a film on an uncanny subject? But fresh concepts are always welcome.Making people laugh is tough, but HULLA makes you break into a smile, at times laughter, even guffaws at vital points. The sheer novelty of the subject and its execution catches you unaware. While there's consistency in terms of execution, it's the written material that's inconsistent.After setting up things so beautifully in the first hour, you expect an encore in the second hour. But it's not engaging at all. In fact, it's a repetition of what you've watched in the first half. The story stagnates and the movie hardly moves. Clearly, the writing in this hour lacks meat.
