‘Hall Bol’ directed and scripted by Rajkumar Santoshi and featuring Ajay Devgan, Vidya Balan and Pankaj Kapoor in the lead roles is a much awaited movie. In his latest celluloid venture, Rajkumar Santoshi focuses on social issues and provokes his audience to think beyond their petty selfish interests. The movie will release worldwide on January 11.
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 Sidhu (Pankaj Kapur), who uses street theatre as a medium to bring about an awakening among the masses. Ashfaque struggles hard to give 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 span. Soon, he becomes Sameer Khan the superstar — one who can enact any role with finesse, get under the skin of any character with ease and walk away with audience applause.
Sadly, amongst all the adulation and applause, he slowly loses his own identity. He forgets his real self and imbibes all the characteristics of the various roles essayed by him on screen. Corruption takes over his entire system, alienating him from all the loved ones, including his wife Sneha (Vidya Balan) and his guru Sidhu.
A shocking incident at a party changes everything rocking Sameer Khan's smooth and comfortable life. He is caught between his suppressed humane self on one side and his corrupted superstar image on the other.
Whether the conflict within him gives way to the good sense, and whether he is able to discard his corrupted image to withstand the pressures and emerge as a true life hero, becomes an integral part of the true life cinema.
