The Bollywood movie 'Hello', a tale about the events that happen one night at a call center when the call agents get a call from God is now being screened at the Liberty Colombo.
Based on Chetan Bhagat's bestselling novel 'One Night at the Call Centre', 'Hello' stars a host of actors including Sohail Khan, Sharman Joshi, Amrita Arora, Isha Koppikar, Gul Panag, Suresh Menon and Sharat Saxena. And Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif chip in with guest appearances.
Produced and directed by Atul Agnihotri, an actor turned director, 'Hello' is told through the views of the protagonist, Shyam (Sharman Joshi) and it is a story of almost-lost love, thwarted ambitions, absence of family affection, pressures of a patriarchal setup, and the work environment of a globalized office. It is also a story of six call agents who see their worlds crumbling around them as the decisions of right sizing are conveyed by their boss.
Shyam is losing his girlfriend because his career is going nowhere as he trudges his way around in a call center. His ex-girlfriend, Priyanka (Gul Panag), is also an agent like him at the call center who is about to be married to an NRI geek Ganesh Gupta who works for Microsoft in America.
There is also the aspiring model, Esha (Osha Koppikar), who is hoping for the break that seems to be always eluding her and the man about town, Vroom (Sohail Khan), who is into well, things. The housewife, Radhika (Amrita Arora), who is constantly at the receiving end of her mother-in-law and a beleaguered grandfather, Military Uncle (Sharat Saxena), 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 are conveyed by Bakshi (Dalip Tahil), the boss.
