Sexy, filthy and thoroughly entertaining comedy marks a welcome shift in contemporary Indian cinema.

Shows, perceptively and often sweetly, a broader slice of young, urban, educated life in India as the three deal with careers, love and happiness.

Akshat Verma's script is imaginative and funny, the film's stars are engaging and "Delhi Belly" adds up to pleasing escapist fare.

A smartly paced, highly entertaining Bollywood gagfest.

The most enjoyably subversive element is Poorna Jagannathan as the self-sufficient bachelorette who waylays Tashi on his way to the altar.

Das and Kapur make for effective sidekicks, it's pacy, fitfully funny and, in its determination to upend cultural expectations, likeably mischievous.

This dark, slickly-made comedy consists of many laugh-out-loud moments.

Imran Khan has every right to expect broader international recognition after his leading man turn in Delhi Belly...Given Hollywood's paucity of genuinely likable 25-35 year-old support players, Khan is a serious contender.

Crosses cultural - and taste - barriers with a joie de vivre that'll have even the Bollywood-averse belly laughing along too.

The sheer daftness and goofiness of this Bollywood comedy-farce makes it likable. But you'll have to be in the mood.

June 30, 2011 Full Review Source: Guardian

The film is by and large too concerned with not offending its audience too much for it to ever even be that shocking.

Audience Reviews for Delhi Belly

Critically acclaimed and publicly well received in general, I couldn't resist myself anymore from giving it a go despite having specific reservations against it. At that time I had no idea whatsoever that I was entering the territory of laugh riot. And fortunately, except for a few minor collisions, I was not only able to get back safe from this territory but even had a fun ride all along it. It was in the reins of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro (IMO with which a few or more would understandably differ) with a modern touch to it. It'd have been a great family film had it not been so full of slangs and cusses. But I guess the makers had no confusions w.r.t. the target audience.

Imran was okay as were the other two actors playing his room partners. Shenaz too does well in whatever little scope she gets. Vijay Raaz is the show stopper here. The actor playing his sidekick is also brilliant. I don't understand (and don't care to) how the role of Sunita (unworthily) went to Poorna Jagannathan (-1 for that alone). The best performer here is the script which, of course, isn't flawless either. Besides few moments here and there, the pre-climax was not up to the mark. The events leading to the climax could have been better built up.

All in all, Delhi Belly turned out to be an unexpectedly comedy flick which I was too hesitant to even go for. Surely recommended.

Disgustingly funny. One flaw that caught my attention (although I'm not sure whether it is or not), in the end when Tashi and his friends went back to hotel to bring back his girlfriend, while shooting, when did Nitin (the bearded guy) went to washroom? His expression was not expected to be like that. There might be more like this but this one was quite noticeable to me. It's an adult comedy movie so better not to watch it with your family. The dialogues are really *beep*.
Also one thing I noticed about this movie, it has been made in Hollywood style flawlessly. I always knew Bollywood copies Hollywood but this have been copied perfectly.

On the lines of Guy Richie's films, Delhi Belly is peppered with sarcasm and witty dialogue throughout its 95 min length. Its a zany, and in parts, deliberately kitschy, black comedy. The high point of the film is its characters, especially Vijay Raaz, his cohorts and Poorna Jagannathan-A Delight.Hope it paves the way for more cinema like it.Well done and must watch.

Delhi Belly, with its realistic, freewheeling dialogues and Guy Ritchie style narration is not your average Bollywood flick. In fact it is so non-Bollywoodish that it was shot in English and dubbed to Hindi. It bothered me a lot at the beginning, but the Hindi lines are well written and decently dubbed. Its a film that Aamir can be proud of.
