There are many Hollywood comedies on the subject of battle
of the sexes but Hello Darling fails to make a mark. The
screenplay and direction are a mish-mash of funny gags
that simply donít go down well.
The story is simple, a vice-president of a Mumbai based
fashion house, Hardik Vasu (Javed Jaffrey), simply cannot
keep his eyes off the women who work in his enterprise.
There is another lady the
bossí wife (Divya Datta) who is a neglected woman who
desperate to attract her hubby's attention. Pushed to the
wall, she turns to a mafia-style NGO run by an aggressive
lady (Seema Biswas) to give her husband some shock
Attempted to create fun by creating confusion by laying a
booby-trap for the boss towards the end, Hello Darling has
plenty of skin show, like the cleavage-flashing leading
ladies who just fail to make an impression. It has average
music by Pritam, lyrics by Shabbir Ahmed, Kumaar and
There isn't much to write about neither Raju Khan and
Remo's choreography nor its photography by Ravi Yadav.
It is sad to note that the story is written by Pankaj and
Sachin who wrote the blockbuster comedies - Apna Sapna
Money Money and Kya Kool Hain Hum.
