03 Movies of the Year 2011 that Ushered the Bollywood from Childhood into the Adulthood

The beginning of a new year is a nice time to sit for a while and look back into the time that we left behind with sweet and sour memories. The memories of the time spent with family, colleagues or friends and sometimes with our own-self. We all love to enjoy the company of anyone or all of these and doing what we love: a day out with family in the weekends, fooding out, going for a long drive with your boyfriend/girlfriend, just taking a stroll on a deserted road in search of inner peace, reading or writing something etc. etc. to a never ending list of such things.

But there is one activity which is common (if not for all) for many. Yes, you got it right: “Movies” “Movies” and “Movies”. Watching bollywood movies is among the favourite leisure time activity for many Indians and I am not an exception to that. What encouraged me to write this post is a cautious excitement that I felt after watching 03 very special hindi movies: “No One Killed Jessica”, “Delhi Belly” and “The Dirty Picture” in the year 2011. I used the word cautious because of the bold & somewhere prohibited transformation that these three movies have brought in with them has transformed the Indian Cinema, specially the bollywood, to the new world which is more bold & daring, more sexy and very hot to handle.

I have put these three movies on the criteria of (1) the subject and (2) the dialogues especially the usage of obscene language & the body language (Reader’s discretion advised). So here I go:

1.No One Killed Jessica: My first movie under consideration is a movie which is based on real the story of a Delhi-based
model Jessica Lall, who was shot dead in 1999 at a restaurant in Delhi by the son of an influential politician of Haryana. The movie depicts the background of this infamous murder case, its trial and the initial acquittal of the accused Manish Bhardwaj by the court that resulted into the nation wide uproar against the acquittal and finally re-opening of the case, finding Manish guilt and his life-imprisonment sentence. So this was the subject of the movie under consideration which had some uniqueness in terms of the controversial background attached with it. But there was one thing that deserves mention here in terms of the transformation in bollywood and thats the character played by the actress Rani Mukerji. In this movie Rani played the role of a tv news Reporter who was seen using abusive words every now and then beep..beep..beep…. and the icing on this cake was frequent use of middle finger by her and that’s too every now and then. The character played by her in the “reel life” was not appreciated by the “real life” reporters claiming that the reality is not like that actually. So this movie of the year 2011-No One Killed Jessica- fits well in the bandwagon of the controversial, critically acclaimed and abusively decorated movies which were made earlier (not so many) and after that.

2.Delhi Belly: Released in the mid of 2011 with its punch line “S#!t Happens”, Delhi Belly sets off with a blast at the
box office and makes Rs. 92 crore after the budget of Rs. 25 crore. If this line not appealing enough to you then read this: Delhi Belly was heavily loaded with abusive words & offensive scenes (I am serious) from the start till the end. Delhi Belly is a story developed around three roomies (one journalist and two photographers) living in a ramshackle apartment in Delhi and leading a debt-ridden life and falls prey to the gangster in their commitment of delivering a secret package. The continuous use of vulgar language, tummy rumbling, farting, the shots of small by-lanes of old delhi went so well with all the characters in the script in the movie that made it so hilarious and engaging to the youngistan of India. The usage of the popular expletive of North India D K Bose, D K Bose at a quick pace in a song “Bhaag D.K. Bose” turned out to be the USP of the movie and made the phrase so popular in entire India from just North India.

3.The Dirty Picture: Last but not the least. Bollywood actress Vidya Balan starrer this movie is my last choice in this
list, of transforming movies, which came to stay at the box-office and will be remembered for the years to come. The story of the movie is said to be based on the life of Silk Smitha- the southern films actress of yester years – famous for her erotic roles played. The story works around the rise and fall of Chennai based girl Reshma running from her home and turning out to be known as “Silk” for playing bold characters, seductive dance moves wearing revealing clothes. The film is also about the love, lust and hate depicted by the characters played by Tusshar Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah and Emraan Hashmi. This movie also projects the character played by Vidya Balan as a strong women who pays her unique contribution in the male dominated society. The sultry dance moves, using a whip, by Vidya, excessive skin show using extra revealing dresses, the bold and double meaning dialogues complemented with the sizzling and sexy voices in between were enjoyable with both eyes closed or open. The famous song “Ooh La La” sung by evergreen Bappi Lahri & Shreya Ghoshal is the real delight and unique in itself.

So that’s it from my part about the three most sizzling, bold and hot hindi movies of the year 2011 that will lead a new way for cinema goers in the near future.
