Movie Review- Halla Bol (Good Message)

Raj Kumar Santoshi is back with his style of fighting with corruption, fundamentalism, bad political and social problems. Halla Bol is a good film after “Page 3” made on the social problems faced by common people in India. Though, Halla Bol goes slightly here and there during the beginning but finally it catches our attention to the point it wants to convey. Acting wise this film is average and most of the actors have given normal performance, here this film looks weak as compared to “Page 3” which was more realistic.



Main actors like Ajay Devgan, Pankaj Kapoor and Vidya Balam are either average or slightly above average. The major attraction of the movie is number of social messages which it conveys. Story of the Halla Bol looks to be taken from the real life episode like Jassica lal case, increasing attacks of fundamentalist forces and story of Khan Heroes. Therefore, story wise there is nothing new in film, however presentation is good and it inspire people to come out and fight against the injustice.


This film points towards number of issues prevalent in our society and how big people and star avoid controversies. Already, this film has got critical acclaim and many people like it. However, chances of this film making big box office records like earlier Raj Kumar Santoshi films are very less. From next week, this film will also face stiff competition from other release of Ajay Devgan “Sunday”. Overall, this is a good film for every Indian to watch because of number of good messages stored in it for all of us.
Points 2.75/5
