An Honest villager migrates to Mumbai and his life goes topsy turvy


Hello Hum Lallan Bol Rahe Hain, movie review

Hello Hum Lallan Bol Rahe Hain is an offbeat movie with Rajpal Yadav in the central role, and no other big names to boast of. Lallan (Rajpal Yadav), a migrant to Mumbai, who respects his work and is proud of it. His family is in village, as he comes to Mumbai – the land of opportunities, to make a living. Lallan is an honest guy who is proud of his job, but suddenly his life goes topsy turvy! Hello Hum Lallan Bol Rahe Hain movie review…

This hardworking and dutiful guy has a dream to pursue. A dream of marrying his love of life Saroja (Preeti Mehra). But this girl isn’t aware of his love interest in her, and just considers him to be her best friend and someone who cares a lot for her.

Though, Lallan stays in Mumbai, he remains in constant touch with this girl Saroja – in his native place. Apart from being an ideal service man, Lallan is also a very good human who reaches and is always present whenever someone needs him.

But as the usual life ka funda – Everything does not turn out to be in the fashion in which we desire. Lallan’s dreams are shattered when he comes to know that Saroja is in love with some other boy.

When he comes to know that Saroja likes another boy and is being married by her family members against her wishes , he takes it on himself the responsibility of marrying her to the boy she likes, which includes as much financial and emotional support as much as he could give for the girl.

Even after knowing this fact it did not bring any difference in Lallan’s concern for Saroja. At one time, he even puts his life on test when she needs him. Something which we have just seen in Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani.

Romance is a mere element in the narrative, in this film Hello Hum Lallan Bol Rahe Hain which has a larger focus of highlighting social issues like financial plight of the lower-middle class and even the Maharashtrians – UP bhaiya topic thrown in. There is no glamour nor any item numbers in Hello Hum Lallan Bol Rahe Hain.

The music by Surendra Sodhi and Vijay Verma has the combination of the sufi and rock music. It appears somewhat soothing and pleasing to listen.

Rajpal Yadav’s role reminds one of his performance in “Main, meri patni aur woh”. He plays his part fairly well with honestly yet, is not very impressive.

It is a low budget film with some publicity; hence most of the cinegoers would not be aware of this movie’s existence. Hello Hum Lallan Bol Rahe Hain is a cute and one time watchable movie.

Hello Hum Lallan Bol Rahe Hain is an average film, and watchable only for Rajpal Yadav’s performance who should be commended for accepting this low budget flick. The other subtle characters played by Manoj Joshi, Ketki Dave, Ravi Jhankal and others lend a freshness to the film which has some humorous dialogues.
