HELLO DARLING - Movie Review : Another comedy plot ripped off from the west just for nothing. (Review By Bobby Sing)

01 Sep, 2010 | Inspired Movies (Alphabetical) / H / Movie Reviews / 2010 Releases

If a HELLO DARLING kind of film comes from the renowned production house of MUKTA ARTS lead by the Showman Subhash Ghai, then it clearly indicates that “All Izz Not Well” around him and his close associates. Directed by Manoj Tiwari, the film is a complete disaster right from the word “Go”, as it offers nothing in the name of entertainment despite of having a good story plot and three beautiful young ladies in the lead.

In straight words, HELLO DARLING is just another forgettable patch on the years old reputation of MUKTA ARTS and the name just adds on to the long list of weak ventures coming from them post 2000. Besides this it was also quite shocking to know that the film is again an undisclosed inspired version of 20th Century Fox film “NINE TO FIVE” starring Jane Fonda, Lili Tomlin and Dolly Parton. The roles similar to these three ladies are played by Gul Panag, Celina Jaithely and Isha Koparikar in this hindi version of the American comedy.
Interestingly, “NINE TO FIVE” also inspired another Tamil film “MAGALIR MATTUM” in the year 1994, featuring Revathi, Rohini and Urvashi in the lead which was directed by Singeetham Srinivasa Rao. Now the question arises that why this particular English film was adapted by two different directors of diverse regions at a gap of more than 15 years. That’s because its based on an amusing comic plot, written around a major problem faced by the working women in their offices, which sadly still remains prevalent in the year 2010.
Three young female colleagues working in a fashion house decide to teach a painful lesson to their playboy boss, who keeps making sexual advances to all of them almost every day. The idea, no doubt had some great potential of making it as a fine comedy. But HELLO DARLING ruins it disastrously with its weak direction, amateurish acting and un-necessary comic sequences which don’t even bring a faint smile on your face.
The writers fail to convert the original story idea into an enjoyable sexual comedy and therefore with an extremely weak script, everything falls apart in this two hours long senseless comedy. The film keeps shifting between its various deliberate sub-plots, out of which not even one is hilarious enough to be mentioned here. The actors can be found hamming all the way towards the end including the experienced Javed Jaffery in the role of a cunning opportunist boss.
From the entire lot, only Gul Panag and Divya Dutta can be found acting a little with conviction and the rest collectively make it highly awful to digest. Celina as the dumb secretary just stays there as a compulsion and Eesha never looks or speaks like a Hariyanvi girl at all. Chunky Pandey, Seema Biswas, Mukesh Tiwari and Asawari Joshi, all are simply wasted whereas Vrajesh Hirjee in a short cameo of a thief is the most irritating.
It surprisingly also has Sunny Deol making a special appearance in the climax who was  probably added at the last minute like something got as FREE. But like most of the FREE things don’t work in the real world, Sunny also fails to leave any mark and remains ineffective. In the music department too, there is more confusion than melody. Both the background music as well as the songs are totally out of place with no sign of “Pritam” anywhere in the tracks.

In all HELLO DARLING is quite bad to be associated with the name of MUKTA ARTS and that too with the unrespectable label of an Inspired one. So better keep away from these 3 beautiful darlings and their freaky plans.
