Dinner Game?
14 June 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I am amazed at the reception this movie gets. All you need to do is watch the French movie Le Diner De Cons (Or Dinner Game) to understand why I have given this a rating of 2. It simply is a frame-for-frame copy. I haven't seen plagiarism so blatant in a Bollywood movie.

Even simple scenes like showing the doctor the bathroom, the dogs in the car, reference to phrases like nymphomaniac are straight lifts. All Sameer Bellary and his team has done is to hire translators instead of screenplay writers.

Bheja Fry beats everything what people like Sanjay Gupta and Anurag Basu have done before. However, watch the French movie. Highly recommended.
