5.0 out of 5 stars Out and Out Riot, October 7, 2011
This review is from: Delhi Belly (2011) (Aamir Khan Productions / Comedy / Hindi Film / Bollywood Movie / Indian Cinema /DVD) (DVD)
I don't know that much about Bollywood films. I have had a chance to see a few really good ones but since I hear they crank out a million films a year and most of them are mediocre, I figure I better wait till something rises above the fray before I spend my time. "Delhi Belly" is such a movie. In a way this is like the movie "Diva." Not only that the plot lines are similar, but that both show such an exuberance for the film making process that I wanted to stand up and cheer.

Here's the scoop. Three buddies, a reporter, a photo journalist and graphic artist share an apartment. Through a fluke started by the reporter's fiance, the three get caught up in a smuggling scheme and must wiggle their way out before their lives are forfeit. This is an oversimplification but why spoil?

This is a real hoot. You have great characters, explosive bowel movements, bad guys, oral sex (non-explicit), guns, cheezy cars, farcical mayhem and much, much more. They even have kissing which I thought they didn't do in Hindi flicks. This plays more to a western audience in its look, directing, humor and overall sensibilities. The lighting is great. The directing is way cool. The music is Okay. One of the lead females, though not really pretty, has a face you can't take your eyes off. She has more character in one eye than most actresses have in their entire frame. This is only the second outing for director Abhinay Deo, but you'd never know it. He's a natural.

This is what movie's are all about. If you're looking for an out and out riot of a film, this is it.
