No stars, no gangsters, no molls, no sex scenes

PRESS RELEASE: This Friday, 19th of September, will see a small Hindi film being released called Hulla.

Written and directed by Jaideep Varma, it took seven years for the film to come to the screen after the first draft of its script in 2001.

The film has no stars, dance floors, guns, gangsters, molls, sex scenes… not even a romantic angle. It is an everyday film about middle-class everyday people. But it has a wit and humour that hopes to compensate for everything.

If you plan on seeing it, the filmmakers specifically request you to see it by the first weekend (20th, 21st September). Otherwise, it could just be that word-of-mouth does not get a chance to build up and the film is off theatres by the next weekend.
