Delhi Belly

Director-Abhinay Deo
Producer-Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, Ronnie Screwala and Jim Furgele
Starcast- Imran khan, Vir Das, Kunal Roy Kapoor, Shehnaz Treasurywala, Poorna Jagganath, Anushka Dandekar and VIjay Razz

Delhi Belly was a laugh riot I thoroughly enjoyed the movie…it was fully “paisa wasool”, although I questioned my sensibilities how I was not put off with the use of toilet humour and dialogues interwoven with expletives. What made it interesting was the situational humour unlike the humour seen in other movies which are forced into the storyline along with background laughter track

What was good about the movie was crisp editing and sleek pace, and the very few songs which were run as the background score instead of the hero-heroine being shifted to the foreign locales with a blink of eye and, dancing and singing with each other or many a times with a bunch of accomplices.

And the bad part was there was nothing new to the script, have not we seen story of mix-ups umpteen number of times- people being caught up for wrong reasons and trying to sort it out.

But performance wise, the villain Vijay Razz, cartoonist and bespectacled friend of Imran- Vir Das, and photographer Kunal Roy did a good job…of course the landlord, jeweler, parents, ex-husband of special correspondent, pop singer played their bit with aplomb to keep the storyline running.

Coming to the lead Imran Khan is definitely trying to shed his chocolate boy image and has done things which none of the commercial heros have tried so far. And last but not the least Poorna Jagganath the new found by Aamir Khan imported from Los Angeles, looked far younger than her age and played her part with finesse.

So that was Delhi Belly full of MC, BC and many more idioms used by the hero and his friends generously…though I wonder why no one uses BaapC and BhaiC???
