Hello Darling Review
A story about lies and laughter. Fun and friendship. Journey to self-discovery. But above all, it is the journey of love. True love.
Comedy is serious business and I genuinely believe that making people laugh is an arduous task. The best of film-makers, with years/decades of experience behind them, have tried attempting laughathons time and again. Sometimes they succeed, sometimes they don't. Hello Darling also tries to tickle your funny bone, but in vain.
Frankly, the story of a sex pervert and three alluring ladies could've resulted in one naughty film. Hello Darling uses every trick in the book (skin show, generous dose of double entendres et al) to make you laugh, but barring a scene or two, the effort falls flat on its face.
Final word? This film is a joke in the name of comedy!
Hello Darling tells the story of three working girls - Candy (Celina Jaitley), Mansi (Gul Panag) and Satvati (Eesha Koppikar) - who bond together in a posh office of Mumbai, though each of them belongs to a different stratum of society. The biggest issue they face is in their work place. It is headed by their smart boss Hardik (Jaaved Jaffrey), a chronic playboy. He is smart. They have to be smarter. Who wins this battle of the sexes?
