PLUS POINTS :
It looks intense and as uncomfortable as Shroff keeps saying throughout the film. I don’t have any other positive thing to say about Hello Charlie.
This is a movie that was made in 2020. Yeah, it looks like it is from the late 2000s, which has been stuck in development hell for some reason. But no. It was made last year, and it already looks and feels dated. Girish Kulkarni is wasted. So is Darshan Jariwala.
In Hello Charlie’s case, that feeling is absent. It looks like a bunch of corny shit slapped together, hoping that nobody notices it. And it’s not just a matter of budget. It’s a matter of commitment.
Then we think that you should ponder and read the spoiler-free blog and then let your intellect decide.
Heading straight to the point, Hello Charlie on Amazon Prime is everything that an avid fan of cinema and comedy would avoid. It is solely because of the flawed situational comedy plot inclined drama that juggles between wit and preachment.
Hello, Charlie cast features some of the celebrities, having a stronghold and influence on social media. The 1 hour 40 minutes’ comedy-drama features Aadar Jain, playing Charlie’s titular and lead role, Chiraag Rastogi. The movie includes Jackie Shroff, Elnaaz Norouzi, and Shloka Pandit as the secondary leads in the human-animal drama.
Furthermore, the audience would get glimpses of Rajpal Yadav, Darshan Jariwala, and Girish Kulkarni supporting the script. Also, there is a cameo by Siddhanth Kapoor towards the climax.
