Halla Bol Preview
|Director Raj Kumar Santoshi comes up with one more film that touches a sensitive social issue. 'Halla Bol' is like an awakening call to the conscience of a generation.|
The film stars Ajay Devgan, Vidya Balan, Pankaj Kapur and Darshan Jariwala.
Ajay Devgan as Ashfaque
He is a small-town boy who does street theatre before entering the film world and making a niche there for himself. Then he becomes a superhero intoxicated by his own success. But then comes a wake up call.
Vidya Balan as Sneha
She dares to love a man who is not from her community or religion despite obvious opposition. And then, after she is married to him and he becomes a superstar, her fight takes a different form. Now she fights for the sanctity of her marriage and for the safety of her embattled husband.
Pankaj Kapur as Siddhu
He is a dacoit-turned-social crusader. Siddhu has put his past behind and now looks forward to reform society in whatever little way he could. He is a mentor to aspiring actors from small towns. Gentle and yet strong, reasonable and yet ferocious, Siddhu has no qualms about picking up the weapon he once renounced to defend the helpless.
Darshan Jariwala as Gaekwad
He personifies the worst of what a politician can be. Gaekwad is a ruthless man who will manipulate the system, threaten witnesses, subvert the judicial process, just to get his son off the hook.
Ashfaque (Ajay Devgan) is a small town boy aspiring to be a film star in the Hindi film industry. He joins a street theatre group run by a reformed dacoit Siddhu (Pankaj Kapur) who uses street theatre as a medium to bring about an awakening in the masses.
Ashfaque struggles to give a creative vent to the actor in him in order to realize his dreams. Ashfaque's determined struggle pays off and he gets a break in films.
He gets a new screen name - Sameer Khan. With the passage of time, the roles start becoming better and he moves up the success ladder in a very short time.
Soon, Ashfaque becomes Sameer Khan the superstar - one who can enact any role with finesse, get under the skin of any and every character with ease and walk away with audience applause.
Sadly, amidst all adulation and applause, he slowly loses his own identity. He forgets his real self. Corruption takes over his entire system, alienating him from all loved ones, including his wife Sneha (Vidya Balan).
A shocking incident at a party changes everything, shattering Sameer Khan's complacent world. He's caught between his conscience on one side and his stardom and fame on the other.
Whether the conflict within him gives way to good sense and whether he is able to discard his corrupted image and emerge as a true-life hero, becomes an integral part of this true-life cinema.
'Halla Bol' has a cameo by Kareena Kapoor as part of screen footage from her film Omkara with Ajay Devgan.
The movie also has a guest appearance by Jackie Shroff who plays himself.
Other guest appearances are by Tusshar Kapoor (playing a lawyer), Sridevi , Boney Kapoor , Pahlaj Nihalani, Neeraj Vora and Ranjit Kapoor.
'Halla Bol' has been written and directed by Raj Kumar Santoshi . The film has music by Sukhwinder Singh and Vanraj Bhatia.
Cinematography is by S Natarajan Subramaniam while choreography is by Ganesh Acharya.
'Halla Bol' has been produced by Abdul Samee Siddiqui.
It is slated to hit the theatres on January 11, 2008.

|Movie Review : A forgettable film made with good intention (2/5)|
No matter how well intentioned Halla Bol is, the film, at the end of the day, fails to stir you up. Rajkumar Santoshi is back with another film that raises pertinent questions and tries to prick your conscience through a story that has a Santoshi stamp all over it....
|Most Critical User Review : HINDI (0.5/5)|
