[Movie-Review]~Delhi Belly….Shhhh…it happens! :)

Statutory warning: DO NOT eat or drink anything an hour before and during the period of watching this movie. You won’t be able to eat after it ends, anyway!!

Three guys, three gals, one shabby rented house and its owner, one gangster, a few policemen, raunchy double meaning yet catchy songs and a lot of expletives is what this movie is all about.


 
As the title Delhi Belly throws a hint so evident, the movie is set out of India’s capital – Delhi. The three guys who share the rented house owned by someone with an extra marital libido, live their life by the least cared and unkempt wild highway. A journalist, a press photographer and a cartoonist by profession, these three guys live more by the expletives their mouths utter than the oxygen that they inhale. The journalist, Tashi (Imran Khan) has a stupid girl friend (why stupid…well, she’s rich and hawt…yet she’s behind this loser) who doesn’t have much role in the movie except that she’s a ‘courier’ (in mafia terms), and that too without her knowledge…100% stupid! The cartoonist has (or rather he thinks he has) a girlfriend who dumps him for a dumb geeky NRI. And the press photographer (who happens to eat a “spiced-up” tandoori chicken leg, on the Delhi streets) is always in search of a rest room during the 96 minutes duration of the movie, which explains the “belly” part of the title. Menaka (played by Poorna) is a to-be-divorced colleague-cum-friend of Tashi’s who happens to have a crush on him, gives him a hard as well as they share the only (but lengthy) lip-lock in the movie!

The storyline is all about a ‘packet’ that a Russian national delivers to the stand-in courier (Tashi’s girlfriend) at the airport, which exchanges various hands but doesn’t reach its destined owner – the gangster (Vijay Raaz). To know what reaches his desk instead of the packet, is exactly why you have to watch this movie (but remember the statutory warning written above!). The rest of the movie is all about what happens to the packet, the three guys, the three gals, the gangster as well as what’s in the packet!!!

The fast paced movie is full of expletives, especially in the first half which then loses steam in the second half as the director concentrates on his ultimate goal – the storyline and a meaningful climax (not that, you silly!)!! What makes it so fast paced, is the background score and the equally fast forward lyrics! DK Bose and Jaa Chudel steal the limelight…not just in the music world, but also in the movie hall.

Men (and some women) would love the toilet humor that the entire movie is smeared (eww) with…I would say –Rather than holding it back and feeling the pain, let it go and enjoy till it ends!’ – the urge to watch this movie, I mean! 😉 😛
This movie is certainly not for the weak-tummy-d for it’s tough to digest as well as to completely and voluntarily flush! 😉 On the other hand, you would turn jealous if you were among the constipated lot! 😛 Cos, as the tagline says “Sh!t Happens!” 😀

And oh, there’s Aamir Khan doing an ‘Item number’ at the end of the movie…spoof but nevertheless, hilarious!! 🙂

My rating: 3/5.

News…in and around this mind!

What’s come with the dawn of this New year? Nothing seems to be working the right way around here…nothing wrong so far on the personal front (oh there’s one! ya ya…ek hey)…but the over-all situation is so messy!

All of you must be knowing about the Satyam fiasco…as they say its common knowledge now!
I am in awe of that Raju dude…How could he cover up such a thingy for such a long time?? Man!! I can’t hide a thing, thanks to my blabbering mind and open mouth (or is it the other way round? :P)!!
Waise, on the serious note I would like Satyam to fight back from the dust. I even bought some shares off the sensex!! Anyways this long term investor in me is nowhere near the ‘Go Green’ campaign as far as Sensex is concerned. So as of now, loss added to loss is profit! 😉

badtimes

Infosys was one company I adored for their values, ethics and other things like the backgrounds of thier management team,  for providing employment to almost a lakh of people, et al…but they disappointed me yesterday when they issued a statement stating that they wouldn’t like to hire any of the Satyam Staffers…
Wonder why the employees in the lower pyramid bear the brunt for what the people in power at the top did? I bet Infosys wouldn’t mind taking the deals (from clients) which Satyam had served so far…
You see the drift and all that?

Though Indo-Pak have cut all sporting ties for the time being, the blame game seems to still rule the roost! I think we need to place a converter (Electronic pundits know what I mean) between these 2 countries whenever dialogues and bhashans are delivered against between them…only then will they get to hear what they wanna hear! 😀

Now for that “ek hey” personal one…
I have a new roommate…he shares the rent unlike Jerry, but thats exactly where all the likeness ends. We had been searching for a roomy since 2-3 months and finally this guy called in. He was about 7-9 years our senior and works in the same organization as I do. No, he being senior doesnt matter to us, else we wouldn’t have let him in…in the first place. What irks us is his trying to be young, cool and all that. “An ambassador no matter you install a ferrari engine, is still an ambassdor to us“. Now this ambassador of ours shakes his head to whatever we hear as music…thats fine…but he expects us to shake our head when he watches Ramayan and Mahabharat on TV (I hate that NDTV good times channel for showing Mythologies whenever he wants them)!! The worst thing is that…he smiles everytime you look at him and you are expected to return the compliments. Sigh…my face muscles are no more flexible without sensing pain!! I can write a book on him, but I bet you got the gist!
Pray for me! Else you would get to see Mythological posts here!! 😉

There was some good news to cheer up for the filmi folks…Ghajini garnered 200 crores profit in 2 weeks…man! Even the original (Momento) and the Indian Original (in Tamil) didn’t get to do that much moolah I guess…Hats of the star value of Aamir Khan and the Marketting team!! 🙂
If you ask me, the Tamil version was better and Momento was even better…after-all the essence lies in the original. But who will ask me? The money talks after all…so be it! Sigh!!

We as humans have so many unsolved problems ourselves…but we do like to take up other inhumane challenges too! Why else would we worry about if or not the comic character TinTin is Gay or at bay?? He was first pulled into the racist controversy but let off cause they just couldnt get hold of him for detention! And now into this….but the thing is, he feels no pain! Thats the best part of being a comic character I guess!! 😛
So to all the animated morons out there, back off and LET HIM BE WHATEVER HE WANTS TO BE! Hmmph!!

There are some more things on the mind which I wanna share here…but I feel that a lengthy post is after-all not so healthy dost!! 😉
