The Dirty Picture Movie Review by Movie Critics

Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 4/5

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.

Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 4/5 

The Dirty Picture is definitely not only your film for the week, but is a seminal work that will be studied in feminist discourses.

Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 3/5

Despite the film’s shortcomings, you go the distance for Vidya Balan, who’s riveting as Silk. She plays the part with gusto – it’s a rare performance, one that’s this brave and uninhibited. I’m going with two out of five for the film, and an additional one for Vidya Balan alone, which makes it three out of five for The Dirty Picture. It’s an average film made eminently watchable by its courageous star. Go on, give her the awards already!

Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 3.5/5

This is Balan’s, or for that matter any contemporary Bollywood heroine’s, ballsiest role so far.

Though Conrad Hilton didn’t put it this way, Silk (or Balan) concludes – There are three things you need for a successful film: entertainment, entertainment, entertainment. Over here, “I am the entertainment.” She is absolutely right, beyond first-rate.

Raja Sen (Rediff) 3.5/5

The Dirty Picture forsakes much potential nuance in its urge to please crowds but is still far more engaging than most Bollywood produce

Khalid Mohamed (Deccan Chronicle) 3.5/5

Above all, the enterprise belong to Vidya Balan. She’s extraordinary: gutsy, consistently in character and unafraid of exposing her darker side. Here’s the kind of complex performance which you haven’t evidenced in years and years. This award-winning act bookended by her contrasting portrayal in No One Killed Jessica, reaffirms her as the finest artiste on the scene today. No contest!

You may have some issues with The Dirty Picture. Never mind because Ms Balan rocks big time. Cheers.

Kunal Guha (Yahoo! Movies) 3/5

Many will argue that this film is filthy, lewd, sleazy and every other word that conveys the same. But since it’s based on a character who embodies all these adjectives, it only ends up being a deliciously dirty tribute.

Aniruddha Guha (DNA India) 4/5

With a highly entertaining first half, and a mediocre second, The Dirty Picture falls short of being truly remarkable. But for that ‘boombaat’ of a performer, Vidya Balan (one star solely for her), and entertaining dialogue, the film is worth the ticket price.

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

Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 4/5

Vidya Balan is all woman, and she is all sensuousness in a performance that is brave, bold and completely natural.

Martin D’Souza (Glamsham.com) 4.5/5

The Dirty Picture is in line for a flood of awards. Vidya Balan will walk away with all possible trophies!

Mansha Rastogi (NowRunning.com) 3.5/5

To sum it up, The Dirty Picture reiterates that bold is beautiful. A ballsy entertainer that deserves a watch!

Sonia Chopra (Sify Movies) 3.5/5

Silk’s character in The Dirty Picture says that films run only on the basis of “entertainment, entertainment and entertainment”.

This one has plenty of it. And despite the obvious cop-out, the film is recommended for the undisputed Performance of the Year. Take a bow Ms Balan; you make the film worthy of a second viewing!
