While the world now knows that owing to shifting of the software operations into India and creation of multiple Business Process Outsourcing units to India, India has emerged as software powerhouse. However it is happening for the first time after a long time that sensing the awareness about the manner in which the economic process is governed, a film, HELLO depicting the travails and tribulations associated with a BPO industry is being brought out into a detailed relief.
For this initiative Atul Agnihotri needs to be complemented as the plot of HELLO has already an identity with the youth of today, who have discovered BPOs as their passport to financial independence. Salman Khan being paired with Katrina Kaif and Suhail Khan has the potential to relive the magic that they created in MAINE PYAAR KYUN KIYA. As a matter of fact Salman whenever he has appeared with his brothers in a comic role, be it in a television show or a film, the journey for films starting from HELLO BROTHER, has tinkled the urban funny bone of the audience.
The BPO business was dealt for the first time as a passing reference in LIFE IN A METRO directed by Anurag Kashyap, and one of the stars from the same film Sharman Joshi has been roped in for HELLO. Sharman Joshi is slowly acquiring the niche of an urban citizen of the present times and the kind of films that he is doing is a testimony to the same.
It is after a long time that a film, HELLO is being made based on a successful novel by Chetan Bhagat and, as the novel has been a hit with the present day audience all across the country and outside, the film, HELLO, has definite potential to find appreciation with the urban audience all across the country. Above all, Salman Khan returns to HELLO in his now patented act of taking off his shirt at the drop of a guitar and the act as it has made the audience swoon to its antics, should be able to do it with HELLO as well. It indeed would be interesting to find out whether the other infant terrible of cricket, Saurav Ganguly got inspiration from Salman Khan or vice versa as the acts performed by both of them have been acts that increased their celebrity quotients like anything.
