Storyline

While on her way to Mumbai airport to board a plane to Delhi, a busy business executive, who employs over 600 employees, gets stuck in a traffic jam, and misses her flight. She blames her predicament on an auto-rickshaw passenger, Manu Gupta, and is appalled when the latter is her co-passenger on a budget-airline. The flight is diverted to Jaipur and with no flights available for several hours, she ends up sharing a rental car with Manu - but matters get even worse when the car breaks down, and both end up spending the night at a cockroach-ridden restaurant. At daybreak, she ends up having no luggage, no car, and forced to ride a camel-cart with Manu, who she cannot stand anymore. But things get even worse when she will find her money has been stolen; the duo will be arrested for traveling on a train without tickets; and end up hitching a ride from men who have just broken out of jail!!

Ab Dilli Door Nahi....
5 July 2011 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Vinay Pathak has carved a niche for him. Regardless of the box-office fate of his movies, the fan-base will continue to patronise his films for the simple reason that as a performer he never lets you down. The same can be said for "Chalo Dilli", his cent percent shines above all. The character not quite irritating if they are expecting another "Bheja Fry" but does bear a slight resemblance.

The plot is interesting, a road movie. The narrative does take a beating at few places especially when they hitch a ride after the jail-break. Instead a few funny moments could have been thrown in. And yes, the penultimate moments are an absolute tear-jerker. The Yana Gupta item song is clearly a force-fit and on that note the "Laila Main Laila" remix is an absolute letdown.

Lara Dutta gets into the skin of the character as a suave corporate lady who can make things happen. The tag of home-production gives her additional incentive to push the envelope.

Akshay Kumar in an extended cameo does a good job.

The "Dasvidaniya" director delivers yet another a fun-filled feel-good movie thats worth a go.
