There are a boatload of reasons The Dirty Picture opened to packed houses across the country this weekend. Vidya Balan certainly wouldn’t have been one, if she wasn’t playing Silk Smitha’s character in the movie. Alright I’m not a Vidya Balan fan and every time I see her on the big screen it makes me wanna jump in front of a moving train. So why did the hype get inside my nostrils? Honestly, the movie’s promo did the job. The crisp theme really felt like something worthwhile for Bollywood after a long time.
It’s been a long time since I did a preview on a Bollywood flick. Although Bollywood hasn’t changed much but there are a few movies that stand out every once in a while. The Dirty Picture seems like one of those movies you just cannot skip. The movie is loosely based on the life of South Indian actress (or siren as they like to call her) Silk Smitha. Vidya Balan along with Naseeruddin Shah, Tusshar Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi in are in the lead roles. The Dirty Picture is releasing this Friday on 2nd December 2011. The date also happens to be the birth anniversary of Smitha.
