The latest film by Aamir Khan is not at all like what his other films are but as we all know it is different than the average Hindi films. Precise and entertaining this film would make the Friday night a lot more fun.
AS ONE of its promotional advertisement says - that only the boring, uptight and the conservative would not watch Delhi Belly because of its lingo but truly this film targets the urban, chic and the Generation X urban Indian youth who are as comfortable by the English language as they are with their Indian food, thus making it one of the most loved crossover films as per the review.
Aamir Khan, the producer, categorically mentioned in an interview that the film is not about the generation gap or about the generation X people but merely about three very confused youths.The reviews of Delhi Belly are divided as critics are of the view that although the youths would love it but mothers and fathers of those youth would frown upon it. Well, even the audience who have viewed the trailers could make it out. But one thing is for sure that since it is a Aamir Khan production one can take a risk and watch it believing that it would be 103 minutes of entertainment, which is the length of the movie.The film is basically in English garnished with some Hindi here and there. The three actors have pulled in their best and have convinced the audience about the role they are playing in the film. Tashi (Imran Khan), Nitin (Kunaal Roy Kapur) and Arup (Vir Das) are three Delhi boys, friends and roommates. All of them are hapless and trying to find a niche in the wold with their work. Tashi is a journalist and has a rich girlfriend Soniya (Shenaz Treasurywala). All the four get entangled in some kind of problem over a bag of diamonds and that is how the movie proceeds.Imran Khan totally gives up his romantic hero image to be a true confused, passionate Delhi boy in the film. Vir Das is commendable as a cartoonist and so is Nitin. Any objection, which would come about is for the language used by these youths but many critics argued that this is the kind of way today’s youth speak and so the film more or less reflects today’s society. The music of the film is from the day one a super hit with ‘Bhaag DK Bose’ topping the charts.This film would also appeal to NRIs, and they would also get a glimpse of how Indian youth has changed. The only problem with the entire movie, as pointed out by one of the critics, is that the second half of the movie is a bit too full of fart jokes and crude behaviour that is supposed to make audiences laugh. In addition, Delhi is not as highlighted as it should be since it is in the name of the film. All in all, this is an entertainer and youths are going to have a nice weekend.
