• Watch The Dirty Picture for the gutsiest, most versatile actor we have today.

  • The film has nice mix of South Indian music with Bollywood sounds. ‘Ooh la la la ’ and ‘Ishq Sufiyana’ is already topping the charts.

    Watch ‘The Dirty Picture’ for dirtiness.

  • On the whole, The Dirty Picture is a lovely picture. It will work wonders at the box-office and work in both, multiplexes as well as single-screen cinemas. Its dialogues, music, performances and mature handling are its biggest plus points. A sureshot hit! For the genre of film it is, The Dirty Picture will write box-office history!!

  • THE DIRTY PICTURE is in line for a flood of awards. Vidya Balan will walk away with all possible trophies!
    To borrow one more line from Rajat’s dialogues… Yeh ladki aag lagaegi!

    Once in a while comes a movie which dares to break the conventional decorum and bring something new to the audience especially something which the audience enjoys. In spite of some flaws The Dirty Picture manages to do just that. Take a bow Ms. Balan. You definitely are entertainment!

  • It’s an average film made eminently watchable by its courageous star. Go on, give her the awards already!

    On the whole, THE DIRTY PICTURE banks heavily on shock-value, sex-value and most importantly, script-value. It’s an exceptional portrayal of an ordinary person’s rise from scratch to extraordinary heights and her subsequent fall. Without doubt, it is one of the most comprehensive scripts to come out of the Hindi film industry in 2011. A film with a universal theme and terrific mass connect, it has remarkable potential to set the cash registers ringing for one more valid reason — entertainment, entertainment and entertainment.

    It’s unlikely to garner critical acclaim, of course. No male reviewer will recommend a movie because it gave him a hard-on. Female critic will probably sense exploitation. Silk couldn’t care less. She collects only photos of hers that appear in the press.

    The film too is defiant, but in more juvenile fashion. Director Milan Luthria’s approach to this heroic harlot is a masala one, and in its urge to please crowds, forsakes much potential nuance that could have made this a great film instead of merely a film with a great lead character.

    What makes us watch, despite everything—the overheating, the overwriting– is Vidya Balan, who dares to go where not too many leading ladies have. This is her film. But it would have been a better, braver film if it had let her go all the way, not just in bed.
