Lately, Bollywood has been exploring the untravelled road of the youth. Be it Pyaar Ka Panchnama or Luv Ka The End, all of them have managed to win the hearts of the viewers. Delhi Belly will do the same, expect for that this comic thriller only targets the youth and no one else. It is strictly not a family watch at your drawing room.

Delhi Belly, starring Imran Khan, Vir Das, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Shenaz Treasurywala and Poorna Jagannathan, has been directed by Abhinay Deo and produced by Aamir Khan. Yes, the tag Aamir Khan itself describes the uniqueness of Delhi Belly.

Tashi (Imran Khan), Arup (Vir Das) and Nitin (Kunaal Roy Kapur) are flat mates, buddies and that by default makes them partners in crime. Tashi is to get married in a month to the glamorous and beautiful Sonia (Shenaz Treasurywala).

Arun has been dumped by his girlfriend and is annoyed over his boss, who has a weird idea of creativity, sketching a smiling banana. Nitin a foody will soon discover that eating delicious Tandoori Chicken off a street vendor is going to give him the worst case of Delhi Belly. Three of them lead a regular life till they get on the hit list of a deadly crime syndicate (Vijay Raaz). And the story unfolds.

Delhi Belly has a novel story presented in an entirely new way, which involves cuss words, outrageous -daring moments, raucous, boisterous, potty-mouthed caper. In short it is a raunchy youth film that may give a culture shock to Indian audience. The smart screenplay and witty and colourful dialogue adds up a lot of energy to the film. Thumps up to the writer Akshat Verma, who steals away the show with an original and colourful idea. Script is airtight and you can't afford missing even one scene from the film.
