Visiting Delhi with a belly (Delhi belly Movie – review)

I have followed the hype over Delhi Belly for some time now , and let me tell you it fully lives up to its expectation . Delhi belly is by far one of the best risky decisions taken by Aamir Khan.

A day before the film released I learnt that there will be 2 versions of the Movie , the original Hinglish Version and a dubbed Hindi Version . Unfortunately I had already booked the tickets so I hoped that the version I would be watching would be the Hinglish one , but as hopes go I ended up with the dubbed Hindi Version which incidentally has toned down dialogues . But to my Surprise I had under estimated my ability to understand Hindi ,  which has greatly Improved since the Time of  3 Idiots , So  I could actually understand more than 95% of the dialogues spoken.

Delhi Belly is the story of Tashi (Imran Khan) and his room mates Arup (Vir Das )  and Nitin (Kunal Roy kapoor)  , who live in an old apartment . Tashi is engaged to Sonia (Shenaz Treasurywala) . Tashi is a journalist and Nitin is his photographer while Arup is a Cartoonist .

These blokes lead an average life until they get caught up in a mess with a smuggling syndicate lead by [Vijay Razz] .

In the mean time Tashi starts falling in love with a special Correspondent Menaka (Poorna Jagannathan) , while Nitin gets the worst food poisoning of his life by eating tandoori chicken from a road side vendor , and Arup gets dumped by his Girlfriend who plans to get married to an NRI .

What happens next is a series of events which are extremely funny , entertaining , and some thing which is not to be missed . But take this with a grain of Salt because this is not the usual brand of humour that we have come to expect from Bollywood  , The humour in this film is either extremely  brilliant or overly offensive depending on how you look at .

This film comes with a good number of pros , first this is a very new kind of film in the lines of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels , Snatch , and The  Hangover  , secondly this kind of film is very new to Indian Cinema , and Finally No other currently playing film will make you laugh so much .

There comes only one Con with this film , This film is not for Family Audience and children , This film is not for those who get easily offended , this is not those people who have as sense of hypocritical morality , and Most Importantly it’s not for Parents !!

Technically also this film is brilliant Art direction , Editing , Music , all these deserve a special mention .

In the Acting department , the three main roles are played extremely well by the actors getting into the skin of the character  , Shenaz  and Poorna do their part well , and Vijay Razz as the Smuggling Gang leaders is brilliant along with the Guy who Says “(Knocking on a hotel room door )Sir ,Loondrry”.

Dialogues in the film are exceptional which is one of the main reason this movie works .

Director Abhinay Deo and writer Akshat Varma have created a movie which easily connects with its tare get audience and no one else , A film which is does not try to hide its intentions behind cheeky double meaning dialogues , there is generous usage of Expletives from both English and hindi.

On the whole Delhi belly is an amazing 1 hr  30 minute ride ,  which is not spoilt by any unnecessary breaks like an interval or song sequence , and a film which should not be missed if you can stomach it .

11 things to avoid in 2011

I really haven’t made any new year resolutions this year , I didn’t bother to put in the effort to end up breaking it .

But here are somethings everyone should remember, not just this year but every year .

Here is my favorite one ….

Putting off your dreams

Look at your big dreams and identify what makes them so appealing. Is it the free time, the nice things, the great relationships, or being in the best shape of your life? Identify something you can do this year that will allow you to enjoy some of that dream without all the extras. Save up some cash and splurge on that amazing purchase or take some unpaid time off. Treasure the time you have and don’t wait until you’re loaded to start savoring the world around you.

I am going to chase redemption this year and this is really good advice . So lets GO !
