Chalo Dilli (2011) - Review

A light-hearted story with an impelling message, Chalo Dilli makes for a decent entertainer. 

Straight-laced, uptight owner of a 600-employee company Mihika Banerjee (Lara Dutta) starkly contradictory to the rowdy, uncouth, small-time shop owner in Karol Bagh Manu Gupta (Vinay Pathak) end up on a cranky journey from Jaipur to Dilli.

The first half, which quickly gets you into the mood of the film without spending too much time on character-building (you discover these characters along the way), gives way to an all too predictable and slightly-stretched second half. Quite a few sequences, characters in the second half bring back memories of Jab We Met. (Hotel Decent. Remember?)

But a hearty climax makes up for the few aberrations here and there. It leaves you with a smile. Don't miss it!

  5. Hiee,

    You have expressed yourself well and you a nice blog. I also like the way you have used stills from the movie.

    But if possible, do write a longer review. I am saying this since you can express yourself well. Hope you don't mind.

    Keep it up.
