    Delhi Belly rating: 8 out of 10(Somak Basu wrote on 30 Jun 2011)

    First Of All, DELHIBELLY is not a movie for all. After watching mostly double-meaning promos, adult references, tons of slangs [& Aamir Khan's straight cut warning] many civilized & socialized people will try to prevent themselves from this movie. But not to forget, Aamir Khan has said, he does not make movies for money, box-office pride or massive collections. Still there are many intellectual, something 'hatke' searchers will surely watch this movie. Also, there are college gores & young citizens of our country whom our Aamir appeals through this movie , and we believe that they know more slangs than this movie consists.

    Let me clarify that, DELHI BELLY is not for all ages, as its mostly a youth appealing comic+con thriller with three very young stars [Imran Khan, Vir Das, Kunal Roy Kapur] in the main roles. Many people has suspects that it's copy of THE HANGOVER, LOCK, STOCK & TWO SMOKING BARRELS, BAD BOYS Etc. But featuring three, two or four boys in lead roles does not always means its copy of these hilarious holly flicks. DELHI BELLY is independent, courageous, innovative, raunchy & rude attempt towards bringing down a new age in Bollywood Industry. These Three are Desi Boyz, who are purely Indian, because they always behave like 'angrez's.

    Akshat Verma, a new talented script & story writer, who approached Aamir Khan by toiling too much, has come up with a new brilliant idea & angle in old-masaledar bolly movies. Brilliance, originality, entertaining - these three ingredients mixed up by him makes a prefect dish which audience can easily appreciate.

    The story basically varies on three different angles of the three friends. Tahsi [Imran Khan], Arup [Vir Das] & Nitin [Kunal Roy Kapur], flatmates, 'partners in crime' have their own problems greater than anything in life. Tashi is all set to get married with Sonia [Shehnaz Treasurywala] but he wants to test-drive her before marriage. Arup carries a life of misery because of his 'khurrat' girlfriend & his irritating & dominating boss. And Nitin has to know how a simple Chicken Tandoori bought from a street-shop can turn his life for 'worse'. But these are nothing. Main problem starts when our three heroes become the target of Somayajulu [Vijay Raaz], an underworld syndicate. Meneka [Poorna Jagannathan] tries to help them but they realize that they should help themselves to get out from this deadly mess.

    Fresh & intelligent script, shuttle performances by everyone [mainly the three lead characters], some hillarious as well as dangerous moments - everything makes DELHI BELLY a winner all the way.

    Ram Sampath here re-discovers himself with a more-than-very good soundtrack. After a sheer disappointment by 'Luv Ka The End', here he gives outrageous tracks like "DK BOSE", "NAKKADWALEY", "SWITTY" & more. "JAA CHUDAIL" was a special song for the movie to describe Arup's madness in his girlfriend's wedding. And "I HATE YOU" was a mind-blowing number where AAMIR KHAN invents him to be a Item Boy & gives a 'kicky' tribute to 'Retro Disco Deewane's. But sadly it was in the end credits.

    This was Imran's best work as it overlapped Imran's mind-blowing performance in "I HATE LUV STORYS". Vir Das also showed incredible work after "Badmaash Company". We missed Chandu from "Badmaash Company" but a 'lover boy-turned-angry revenge taker' was handsomely carried out by him. Kunal Roy Kapur can easily be compared to ALAN from "THE HANGOVER" but this hungry-joker pal is a dream-friend of everyone. Mainly, the unbreakable friendship between these three friends was the main attraction. The chemistry between them would make you believe if they are real-life-friends. Others like Shehnaz gave a decent job, Good debut for Poorna, Vijay Raaz was very well.

    On the whole, there's nothing new in filming a 'Delhi' based movie, but if a intelligent script takes place there, "DELHI BELLY" takes birth. If a perfectionists touch makes everything perfect, then AAMIR KHAN has brought a rage in 2011. This movie can be a diversion towards higher successes for Imran Khan. At last, Those who seek excellent works & a change in today's "all-the-same-story-less-movies", believe me, "DELHI BELLY" is a dish you wouldn't like to skip.

    Rating -- 4.25+/5.00
