Hello - the Movie

'Hello', the new movie is based on Chetan Bhagat's One night at the call center. While the book was quite entertaining.... until the actual story, the phone call from God (now what was that!) arrives.

Just saw the full-page ad in Mid-day today and was surprised to see only five characters (the book has six.) I remembered the elderly gentleman in the book (who has issues with his son and his family) and yes, he was missing in the promotional photograph. Ouch, did they drop him out?

Then I saw a tiny advertisement and yes, it did have photographs of 'six' characters.

If you are a senior actor, unless you are Amitabh Bachhan or the likes, you don't feature in a full-page ad. Irrespective of how significant your character is.

P. S. : Ditto for Kabhi Alvida Na kehna advertisements that had Amitabh Bachhan but no Kiron Kher. Both of them had an equally significant role in the film.
