Excitement! Expectation! Belief! is what one got to see on the faces of people who were eagerly waiting outside the theatre to watch the recent Aamir Khan's production, Delhi Belly. When its Aamir's film, each Bollywood buff is sure that the film will be different. During the show, one can hear the continuous eruption of laughter in the hall. Delhi Belly successfully managed to deliver grin faces out of the theatres.

While the youngsters loved the attitude that the film carried, there were others (of course who are no more young) who preferred to rather flush the 'shit' down the commode. Exactly like the film critics, who gave divergent views on the film, the usual Bollywood buffs also managed to pin point their likes and dislikes for Delhi Belly. While some felt that the dialogues and the music worked for Delhi Belly, a few reasoned that the fresh faces in the film (Imran Khan, Vir Das, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Poorna Jagannathan, Shenaz Treasurywala) pumped in the uniqueness. Agreeing with some and disagreeing with a few, lets jot down 'what worked' and 'what didn't work' in Delhi Belly for the audience. Here comes the VIEWER'S VERDICT.

Mayuri Ingrole, a big movie buff reasoned that Delhi Belly had nothing new to offer as far as the story line was concerned. The film solely worked because of the dialogues and the fresh star cast, she explained. The usage of songs as the background track during the scenes impressed this young lady a lot. Giving the same kind of views, Ghanshyam, another movie goer, accepted that the dialogues worked for him in Delhi Belly.

Having somewhat the same view another Aamir Khan productions fan, Shradha Mohanty listed her likes and dislikes in the film, “There wasn't anything GREAT about the movie in particular, except the tag of Aamir Khan productions. Use of lewd language is something that will make it a hit among teenagers. Not to mention the original sound tracks, which are a huge crowd puller. Apart from that, I appreciate the variety of movies that AK Production brings to the table."

Talking about the 'diamond' plot in the film, Somesh Kumar thought it didn't prove to be a very strong note in the plot. However, he calls Delhi Belly a good movie with everyone playing their parts well in humble appetite. “I have seen the movie in hinglish but I imagine the Hindi one to be better as it will reflect the true essence of Delhi lingo. Overall a much better movie for laughs where the jokes are not lame and redundant," concluded Mr. Kumar.

An Imran Khan fan, Neha Mitra managed to watch Delhi Belly on Friday itself. She thinks that the film was done brilliantly. “Imran Khan, for a change, has done a good job," she told, equally appreciating the work of Kunaal Roy Kapur and Vir Das. Talking about something new attempted in a Bollywood commercial film Neha viewed, “the typical new age lingo is something that the youth of today can easily connect with."
