What we can see in “Hello Kolkata” we had seen it before in Anurag Basu’s “Life in a Metro”. But yes it’s not exactly a copy. It’s not a movie dealing with extra marital relation or one sided love, or any kind of long speeches on love and relationship. In this movie director Manoj Michigan has dealt with very regular problems of man’s life. The characters are so common in real life that the audience can relate themselves with the characters. The director has paid equal attention for each story and actor. All the songs beautifully fits into the situation and reflects the emotions and dilemmas of the characters. Music is also beautifully melodious. All the actors have given their best performance. The director has successfully used the nature according to the circumstances. But why all the characters go to Shankarpur remains a secret.
All the four stories run parallely but director has handled it in such a way that seems never an impossible task for the audience to understand what’s happening. No doubt after watching this movie judges will send more and more couple to sea sides to solve the problems of their conjugal life. This movie is certainly a well attempt to come out of the conventional concepts of Tollywood. No artificial heroism has been imposed on any of the character of the movie, all the characters are very much real.
