After aborted projects like SAAMNA and LONDON DREAMS, Rajkumar Santoshi and Ajay Devgan would finally have a release to their name in the form of HALLA BOL.
It may be noted that Santoshi and Devgan were touted to be a lethal combination after the former's fallout with Sunny Deol. The film maker got a taste of Devgan's histrionics for the first time in LAJJA and from that point on there was no looking back. The two came together soon in THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH and if not for the clash with many other films revolving on the revolutionist, the film would have made box office history.
Nevertheless, Santoshi bounced back with KHAKEE and though the film was a success, it is being remembered more for Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar than anyone else. Santoshi-Devgan 'jodi' didn't rest though and soon projects like SAAMNA and LONDON DREAMS were announced. While SAAMNA failed to even take off, LONDON DREAMS was aborted after the first schedule.
Now four years after KHAKEE, Santoshi and Devgan would be seen in HALLA BOL which again rests on strength of both - intensity! With dramatic promos of the film generating good curiosity, one waits for 11th January to witness fireworks explode once again.
