Delhi Belly - Preview
It's hip to be abusive, and it's as cool to be liberal about sex as it is to be about farts. And that's exactly what Delhi Belly is - hip. It might not have umpteen cool ways to turn the camera, but it is right up there with Gen X in its slang and attitude. In its way, Delhi Belly is Dil Chahta Hai for a generation that's 10 years younger - where women might also enjoy a guy film as much as the guy next to her, laughing his guts out. Oh yeah, and don't take your parents for this one.

The first I heard of Delhi Belly it created a decent enough buzz because Aamir Khan is producing it, etc. The next thing I know, I see the trailer, I am shocked and then I just can't stop laughing. D K Bose. How cheeky is that! Of course, I got over it soon enough and started wondering what I should be doing if my kids start singing it. But look at these people in the making of the song. It's amazing how they are keeping a straight face while talking about it.
As with any film Aamir Khan is associated with, I'm looking forward to Delhi Belly. I might not like it, but I'll be shocked if I don't see something new, something different. The rest of the music too is sign enough, no?
It's high energy, quirky and has a spark that makes you sit up and notice. The promos give nothing away about the film. Which gives me hardly anything to write about here, but makes me really happy because the lesser I know about a film, the more I can go in to the theater with a clean slate.
Anyway, here are some music reviews.
milliblog - a 200 worder which also says - "Delhi Belly almost seems like a cleansing act for what Ram did in his last Bollywood outing and the result is one kick-ass ingenious soundtrack!"
music aloud - "8.5/10"
Apun Ka Choice - "3.5/5"
Bollyspice - "4.5/5"
Bollywood Hungama - "3.5/5"
HappySing - " Delhi Belly is what you had wanted it to be after that first trailer and that first song."
