A confused young girl has no idea what she wants to do with her life. Her mother is over-protective,her father wants to let her be. ‘Hello Zindagi’ tells a familiar coming-of-age tale,with a hard-worked debut,but without too much zing.

Fresh-out-of-college Kavita (Lagoo) snorts coke and spends nights with strangers. That’s her way of rebelling against authority. She runs into a woman (Gidwani),who is a doctor stuck in a loveless marriage and who is also equally at sea,and both fetch up in Goa,in search of self.

Lagoo is alive and expressive,and she could have done better with a better script,and better tech-specs. She does find a life saver in a man (Gunaji) who is busy saving turtles on the beaches of Goa,the only new element in the film. But that’s not enough for a full-fledged feature to be fully engaging.
