Hulla - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

With sub-plots repeating themselves, the entire plot leans towards boring. But it's realistic enough for you to sense your housing society on the big screen.

Plot Summary

Raj Puri (Sushant Singh) cannot sleep because of the noises the watchman (Chandrachoor Karnik) is asked to make at night to prove that he's awake.

What Worked

  • The love-making scene and its interruption.
  • The picturization of the two songs describing the situations that the two characters are in.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Sure, people lose their cool in society meetings, but the one shown here was one sudden outburst. Also, would love some of the people in my society o settle their temper as this gentleman did.
  • I'm sure the lady who yelled Nita, Mrs. Shenoy, was meant to annoy, but the overacting made her look out-of-place. So, did the couple who loved loud music.

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • Was the watchman once mentioned as a 68 year old and then as a 74 year old?
  • A shadow on the left of the screen in the climax scene with Abha and Raj.
