Hello Charlie movie stars Jackie Shroff, Pankaj Saraswat’s story makes the film the slapstick comedy that offers humour.

Hello Charlie teases you by hilarious comedy routine, but exposes its hollow plot, the writing needed to be a little more solid.

Chirag Rastogi (Aadar Jain) has nothing much to do, also known as Charlie, is put up with his uncle (Darshan Jariwala), who finds his truck to be precious as much as Boman’s pappppa loved his car in Dhamaal. Parallelly, we’ve MD Makwana (Jackie Shroff), the country’s eccentric who is a fraudster.

His ‘darling’ Mona (Elnaaz Norouzi) has plans of creating a disguise for Makwana into a Gorilla and take him to Diu from Mumbai to secretly escape from the country through the sea. As both meet, Charlie looks to steal his uncle’s truck in order to impress him by earning big bucks. The delivery he gets is of Makwana disguised as a Gorilla. Dumb Charlie agrees to transport the Gorilla, and all the obstacles they face during the journey is what the story is all about.

Right from the idea of disguising a fraudster 60-year-old millionaire disguising as a Gorilla to a manchild asking him, “would you escape if I get you out of the cage?” before letting him out to change a tyre of the truck, Pankaj Saraswat’s story takes no time to prove it doesn’t know where the slapstick comedy ends crossing the line of bearable humour. You might have a laugh or two when a poker-faced Rajpal Yadav says “Bolo Beta” replying to his colleague ‘Alpha’ on the walkie-talkie, but that’s about it. No joke in the film touched this level for me & if you didn’t like this, don’t take any of my ‘positive’ words for the film.

Due to Excel’s strong backing, the film achieves to get a bright and colourful setting, but unfortunately, the screenplay (Pankaj Saraswat & Abhishek Khairkar) didn’t do it to its fullest. This lies in the zone of Total Dhamaal; the story had fun dialogues. Andre Menezes’ camerawork is good with fresh bits.

Hello Charlie has star performance, apart from the three scenes, we see Jackie Shroff acting with his face as the Gorilla’s outfit. Ranbir Kapoor seems a bit off in this film. Mona’s character highlights Elnaaz Norouzi’s range which is very limited as of now. This is an average film.

Hello Charlie releases on 09 April, 2021.
