Ok! Enough said about the ‘Penchar‘ and ‘DK Bose‘. Time to get hands on the real stuff: Delhi Belly the movie. Yes, as usual you will hear it first on Bollywood Hungama.
Both the above mentioned songs of the upcoming Aamir Khan Production have managed to grab eye balls. The songs are just an icing on the cake. The cake is the film itself. An insider who has seen the film informs, “Delhi Belly is going to be a rage. Forget small budget and all, the film is going to be a cult classic and Aamir Khan Productions will be proud of the results once it releases. Hindi cinema has had many dark comedies but Delhi Belly takes the genre to another level. Delhi Belly is like Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. It’s like Snatch, very past paced with wit and abuses all over.
By the sound of it, Delhi Belly looks like it’s going to take our industry to another high. The source reveals further, “You are right! Delhi Belly will do exactly what Dil Chahta Hai did a decade ago and what Dev D did few years back. Both were coming of age films that changed the way films are being made in Hindi cinema. This one though has an upper hand because 80% of the film is in English. It’s got Hindi too. What’s funny is that majority of the abuses are in Hindi language and that’s what makes it hilarious.”
Talking about the performances, he said, “Delhi Belly is Imran’s best work ever on celluloid. Vir Das is fantastic but the guy who impressed everyone is Kunal Roy Kapur. He is going to be a super star once the film releases. Shenaz Treasuryvala is super cute.”
But what about the reputation that Aamir Khan has carried ever since Lagaan. Will a film like this question his creativity? “I don’t think so. Aamir Khan himself quoted that he doesn’t think that anyone above the age of thirty would go and watch Delhi Belly. It will entertain the youth of our country and is definitely not a ‘masses’ cinema. Yes, it is entertaining and intriguing and that’s what will draw in the crowds. Delhi Belly‘s USP is that it will definitely have a repeat audience”, said the source.
If this source is to be believed and I’m sure he is, then Delhi Belly may be the ‘change’ that our Hindi Film Industry is looking for.
