Eela is an aspiring playback singer and single mother. She has given up all her dreams to raise her only son. But now her baby son 'Vivan' is all grown up and being a typical young millennial, doesn't want his mother's life to revolve around him.

Unfortunately her plans backfire and she suffers a backlash from Vivan for invading his privacy. Will Helicopter Eela manage to salvage her relationship with Vivan and find her calling again?
Eela is emerging singer and while hoping to have a great career suddenly she decides to marry her boyfriend. After marriage expectedly she delivers a baby and becomes a regular mother from an emerging Singer. Then Eela's husband decides to leave his family for some logicless Reasons and Eela becomes a Single mother from a regular mother. Rest story needs to be watched by yourself to decide where did it make sense?
Helicopter Eela rarely makes sense and even at those rare occasions, the Execution is below par. Plenty of moments leave you with confused reactions like, 'Wait... What? How could be...? How can this happen? What the hell was that? And so on... In short this is a story of bond between an overprotective mother and her highly practicle son, which should have been told in better way. In between we see some moral lecture kind of sentences and self discovery of Eela in latest fashion.
While creating 90's era director fails to capture the theme but somehow manages to create that atmosphere through effective use of small properties. Kajol looks elegance beauty at several occassions but here also her make up speaks louder than her acting which wasn't expected from an actress. Riddhi as her practical son and nowdays buddy, dude kind of guy is noticeable. Rest of the cast is decent. Music of the Film is Very Good, you might feel this is an exegarration but you will agree with me when you see those songs on screen. Screenplay is messy, has so many dull parts which should have been removed by editor. Overall its the Director who is at Fault. First of all Pradeep Sarkar should have worked more on the script, then he should have had a better vision to tell this story through film. There are so many over-dramatic and senseless loopholes throughout the narration that as a whole Helicopter Eela end up on a low note. Even if you are a Fan of Kajol still, you have to skip this one and better be waiting for a good film from her which will have a strong characterisation. Coming up to the Box Office Prediction, Helicopter Eela will definitely find it tough at ticket windows as the competition is too much and Content isn't completable.
