Rating: * star

Hello Darling reveals the conditions of three glamorous and intelligent women. These women are the victim of a lecherous boss. This is a heroine oriented film as there is no hero in the film as such. However the story is all about working women. Also what all they have to face in the office has been showcased in a light manner.

Mansi and Savitri (Celina Jaitley,Gul Panag and Easha Koppikhar] share a house. They are employed at a posh designing office in Mumbai. Hardik [Jaaved Jaffrey] plays the boss. He is a play boy, although married to a Gujarati house wife, Purvi. This play boy natured boss always addresses all the females as “Hello Darling.” What all he does to promote the females need to be watched. Asawari Joshi plays the secretary to Hardik. What happens to Hardik one night when he is kidnapped by these girls? And later how he lands in the Nari Sanghatana, a pati sudhar samiti, which is run by Seema Biswas to tame down lecherous husbands forms the crux of the story. Rocky a wannabe Elvis Presley [Chunky Pandey] who plays Celina’s boy friend appears in the film of and on.

However Director Manoj Tiwari has tried to rehash the remake of not one but many films- a tamil film”Magalir Mattum, a film which never released. Randhir Kapoor ‘s film “Ladies Only where he plays the lecherous boss . Undoubtedly the director could not mix and match plots from these films exuberantly, resulting in a messy tale. Comedy in the film does make one laugh. Gul Panag,Seema Biswas and Jaaved Jaffrey have performed up to the mark. They could not help do wonders with a badly rehashed script. Celina and Koppikhar could have toned down at a little lower pitch. Chunky Pandey’s role seemed to be like a worthless bauble. Nothing much to perform. Sunny Deol’s last minute entry is no saving grace for the film.

Music by Pritam reminds one of the yester- year tunes from the number.”Aa Jaane Ja…. Music sounds hummable and soothing enough to the ears.

All and all do not waste time on this week-end watching this boorish flick.

Divya Dutta being kept under wraps in ‘Hello Darling’ Promotion

The latest cat-out-of-the-box is pertaining to Mukta Arts’ upcoming film HELLO DARLING and the fact being that yet she seems nowhere in promotion of the film but actress Divya Dutta is a part of the movie ‘Hello Darling’. Yes, the movie has Divya Dutta playing the role of a Gujrati housewife to actor Javed Jaffrey whereas in entire promotion of the film, only the three glam girls, Gul Panag, Eesha Koppikar Narang and Celina Jailtly and Javed Jaffrey are visible. Be it hoardings, posters of the film TV Promos or news items Divya’s presence is just negligible. There is no enmity or personal grudge involved in it but all a part of the planned publicity. It was a conscious call from the Director and Producer of the film to keep Divya hidden in the publicity, because they felt it is one of the most important characters in the film and basis for the story to excel.
