The genius of this film is the script by Akshat Verma, which takes several well-worn plot staples and turns them into something entirely fresh and unexpected.

Wonderfully rude and raucous.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

The film is by and large too concerned with not offending its audience too much for it to ever even be that shocking.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
