Delhi-based Sonia agrees to deliver a package for Vladimir Dragunsky and asks her rather unkempt and debt-ridden fiancé, Tashi Malhotra, to do it for her. Tashi, in turn, asks one of two of his room-mates, Arup. But Arup forgets to do so due to an upset stomach ailment commonly known as 'Delhi Belly' as well as his plan to blackmail their landlord, Manish and asks the third roommate Nitin to deliver the package. A gangster, Somayajulu, who was the recipient of this package, starts by brutally questioning Vladimir, and finds out that the package may be in the possession of the trio. While Tashi must deal with his attraction for Journalist Menaka and incur the wrath of her husband, Rajiv, he still has to fully come to terms whether or not he wants to marry Sonia. And the entry of ruthless Somayajulu and his gang seriously jeopardizes any plans Tashi and his friends may have for the future.
30 Countries in 30 Days Film #7 - India
I watched this without subtitles, and while most of the movie was in English, I was left wondering what they were saying in Hindi the entire time. I can't help but wonder if this would have swayed my opinion of this movie. With that said, I still found the movie funny. It's quirky, a little cheesy, but still funny. When isn't a firecracker up someones ass not funny?
If you don't mind a little Bollywood goofiness, then check it out. It's different from the traditional comedy I'm used to which was nice.
What a breakthrough in modern Bollywood script writing !! Loved it.
Not a Bollywood movie fan, was ready to hate this movie, ended up really enjoying it. The ridiculous over-the-top things I expect from Bollywood movies was only done a couple times here and done well I thought. The movie builds, starts slow, plot events happen, twists, laughs and some violence and some romance. A well balanced movie and a good time really.
many good things on such a small script.
While Delhi Belly brings to light an important change in Indian society through its amusing plotline, the film still manages to fall short in a key factor. That factor is balance. For all that Deo’s film dares to do, say and preach, it never really manages to connect on a very personal level. Majority of the film is stuck in it’s own newly found freedom to express it’s angst through cursing, sex and gross-out humor and never cares enough to bring to light the reasons behind nor the implications of it’s own actions.
We get that the movie is churning the wheel of change in a cinema bounded for so long by standards of what is acceptable on screen and…
Extremely unsatisfying ending. :C
A genuinely laughed aloud several times. A completely non-serious whirlwind crime comedy, with a very game cast.
The truly amazing port of Delhi call Girls are the only objectives to add the perfection companionship to you in friendly and girlfriend oriented session to you.
Why should I pay from her veins
A very fun movie about three young urban flatmates who's lives and aspirations are disrupted by their accidental involvement with a smuggler. Nowhere near as vulgar as it's been made out to be and a lot more charming and funny than I expected. Includes a great Bollywood fantasy dance number parody. The majority of the dialog is English so even the subtitle-averse should enjoy it.
Indian cinema, ongoing.
