Once in a while Bollywood churns out a decent movie and the man behind it is most of the times, the one and only, Aamir Khan. Delhi Belly is the story of three friends sharing a flat, each with their own personal problems and their encounter with crime. Tashi (Khan) is a journalist who is engaged to his air hostess girlfriend, Sonia (Treasury). Sonia does a favour for a friend by smuggling a 'package' by an unknown Russian at the airport. She knows little of what the package contains and gets Tashi to deliver it for her. Nitin (Kapoor) is Tashi's photographer who gets the Delhi Belly by eating unhygienic street food and needs to rush to the toilet every half-minute. Tashi passes the package onto Nitin for delivery who subsequently gets Arup (Das), a frustrated cartoonist, to do it for him. Confusion occurs and Somayajulu (Raaz) the gangster for whom the package is for gets shit, literally. The movie is an ultimate laugh riot all the way with each and every performer contributing with a fabulous performance. Vijay Raaz particularly stands out due to the finesse in which he throws out every swear word from his mouth. I don't think any amount of praise would be good enough, just go watch a zillion times and laugh each time!
Thumbs up: Hilarious, perfect acting
Thumbs down: A been there, done that story
