Review

First things first! Milan Luthria is brave and intelligent. Brave, because Milan steps out of the comfort zone to narrate the tragic story of an actress....Well narrated and wonderfully executed, THE DIRTY PICTURE is sure to strike a chord with the avid moviegoer. I'd like to give brownie points to Rajat Aroraa's dynamic script and razor-sharp dialogue. The riveting screenplay and power-packed dialogue will remain etched in our memory for a long, long time, eliciting a similar response like ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI. The writing holds the spectators' interest and doesn't let you digress from the screen... THE DIRTY PICTURE is embellished with several powerful sequences.Note the sequence when Vidya convinces/seduces Naseeruddin Shah, after he refuses to work with her. It's remarkable. Also, the first encounter with Emraan Hashmi. Noteworthy! Much later, the volatile sequence at the awards ceremony is amongst the highpoints of the enterprise. The second hour has its share of super moments as well. The one featuring Vidya outside Anju Mahendroo's mansion is super. Vidya's interaction with the two women [individual sequences, both] -- with Naseer's wife first and Shakila, the dancer, next -- packs a solid punch. Vidya's interaction with the maker of porn movies is another shocking twist... Vidya's sizzling show and dare-bare act is sure to seize the viewers by complete astonishment. It's a novel casting because it is nothing like what Vidya has done before and is completely diverse to her image. But let's give Vidya the due: She delivers an astounding performance, pushing the envelope yet again. In fact, Milan and costume designer Niharika Bhasin Khan have ensured that the sexy-looking persona is aesthetically depicted. Vidya had put on oodles of weight to get the look of the character right and the flabby body only adds a lot of authenticity to the character she depicts on the big screen. Naseeruddin Shah, who has been cast as an ageing South Indian superstar, sports wigs, dark glasses and painted moustache, reminding people of the stars of that era. He plays to the gallery, provoking claps, laughs and whistles, thus pulling off the role with élan. One has to credit Emraan Hashmi for willing to take on bold, aggressive characters. I actually wondered what prompted the actor to share screen space with Vidya, who has a meatier role and enacts the central character, but he walks his own path throughout the film. He plays the headstrong, hot-blooded, rebellious director to the hilt. Tusshar is wonderfully restrained in a significant role. His sequences with Naseer and Vidya, both are truly fantastic. On the whole, THE DIRTY PICTURE banks heavily on shock-value, sex-value and most importantly, script-value. It's an exceptional portrayal of an ordinary person's rise from scratch to extraordinary heights and her subsequent fall. Without doubt, it is one of the most comprehensive scripts to come out of the Hindi film industry in 2011. A film with a universal theme and terrific mass connect, it has remarkable potential to set the cash registers ringing for one more valid reason -- entertainment, entertainment and entertainment. collected Rs 32.32 cr nett in its opening weekend. --imdb.com/title/tt1954206/

I tried hard to reload.
Sonam
This film was able to convey the story without nudity, vulgar sex scenes, ranchy non-talented porn stars.

Don't we all love our flawed entertainers, in most cases the more depraved and shocking an actors life is, the more curiosity we have for that star. In most cases a star maybe doing it for attention or sensation but many times, their lives are emotionally bankrupt which make them fall in to an abyss. Ektaa Kapoor chooses Silk Smitha, the titillating sensation of the 80's, as her subject for Dirty Picture. The film chronicles her life, detailing her long struggles, her sexual escapades with men, her fame, her bouts with alcohol, her botched attempt in film production which made her penniless, and finally the emergence of the heroine as the vamp and which relegated the likes of Silk to the background. She and Milan Luthria the director, pack all this in slighly over 2.30 hours sheer entertainment.
Reshma ( Vidya Balan) aspires to be a actress but does not get any breaks, and she is told that she does not have the spice or spunk to light up the screen. However she manages to land a role as a dancer in a film by Selva Ganesh ( Rajesh Sharma) which has been directed by artsy Abraham (Emraan Hashmi) However her sequence ends up on the editing floor. Selvaganesh finds that footage and releases the film, instant fame follows with a rechristening from Reshma to Silk. Silk then gets a chance to act with Surya ( Naseeruddin Shah) and uses her charms to land him in bed. This scene is amazing because of the dialogue,Surya tells Silk `Main 500 ladkiyon ke saath tuning kar chuka hu', ( I have tuned 500 women) to which she replies `Par kya aapne ek ladki ke saath 500 baar tune kiya hai ( but have you slept with the same woman 500 times) They have an affair but since Surya is married, Silk remains the other woman.

You know how actors are always humming about getting a dream role and playing it to the best of their ability? Usually such roles go by somewhat under-celebrated by the audiences. The artist who plays these roles love their personal performances but seldom does a moment come for an actor where the rejoice of the crowd is matched equivocally with their own candor. Vidya Balan completely owned her role in THE DIRTY PICTURE. The film is a treat for film goers and the direction is stoic and lacks any apology or even malice. This will be a favorite for many years to come for several dialogues. I think Vidya Balan's performance dictates the flow of the film and she has truly outdone any expectation anyone had from her. I thoroughly enjoyed the film and for people who thought it was vulgar or silly, they surely weren't expecting a Priyadarshanisque flair now, were they?! I'm going to watch Kahaani at the theater too, it was a recently released film and I hear it's yet another rollicker by this actor who's risen from the phoenix of her own lukewarm ashes.

This DVD is loaded with ads. The DVD is manufactured in such a way that once the ads start, you cannot do anything to skip them. Wow! And when the ads were done, there was no movie. I tried hard to reload. But the same incident repeated itself whenever I tried. I wanted to ask the seller to return my money, but it is not worth the while.And I think that, on account of this, customers do not complain and these DVDs keep on selling and fooling EVERY buyer. If the seller did not know this, they should re-check, and perhaps take this product off the Amazon.com market.

I expected this to be much better.

The history behind the movie was worth checking up on google.

It's still a good movie to watch.

The acting was good
