Hello starts with a thud as a fully clothed Salman Khan jumps off a chopper and dances to â€˜Bang Bang Bangâ€™ on a stage where â€“ needless to say â€“ he takes off his shirt to flaunt his finely waxed chest and abs to a crowd of swooning and fainting girls. Thereafter, the rockstar (Salman is, weâ€™re told) in his long leather overcoat and conspicuously visible hair implants retires to a lounge to rest while a technical snag in his chopper is being fixed. There and then, walks in a beauty ( Katrina Kaif ) who tells him a story.
Cast: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sohail Khan, Sharman Joshi and Isha Koppikar
Itâ€™s a tale set in one rainy night, a tale of six individuals whose lives â€“ in a remarkable coincidence â€“ hit rock bottom during the course of the night.
Shyam ( Sharman Joshi ) is trying to lead a team at the call centre even as he deals with his personal heartbreak. The girl he loves, his colleague Priyanka ( Gul Panag ), is getting hitched to an NRI yuppie in USA.
There is Vroom ( Sohail Khan ) who loves bikes and has a crush on his co-worker Esha ( Isha Koppikar ) who wants to be a model and doesnâ€™t mind making a few compromises to get a lucky break.
There is anti-depression pill-popping Radhika ( Amrita Arora ) who lives with an ill-tempered mother-in-law and a husband ( Arbaaz Khan ) whoâ€™s never at home. And lastly thereâ€™s Military Uncle ( Sharat Saxena ) who loves his NRI grandson so much that he always carries a framed picture of the lad.
As these six individuals work the night away (though not without a fair number of system breakdowns) their tangled lives are exposed, hidden truths revealed, and there comes a point in the story when their lives hang in balanceâ€¦until a divine cellular intervention sets the things straight.
