Once Upon A Time In Mumbai fame director Milan Luthria and script writer Rajat Aroraa are back with another realistic movie. Their latest film The Dirty Picture is another bold attempt. The movie is daring and provocative, yet it keeps distance from vulgarism and offensiveness.
The Dirty Picture is a biopic on the life of the South sex symbol Silk Smitha and actress Vidya Balan's bold performance is the major attraction in the movie. Vishal-Shekhar's music, Rajat Aroraa's dynamic script and sharp dialogues, Bobby Singh's cinematography, Pony Prakash Raj's choreography and beautiful art works and costumes are the other attractions of the film.
The movie is set against the colorful and entertaining setting of the South film industry of the 80s. It revolves around a girl's journey from a makeup artiste to a sex goddess. She battles fame, fortune and alcohol. The Dirty Picture does not focus on the sleaze, but the tragic story of the sex siren, who provided titillation to thousands of viewers, but died a lonely and tragic death.
