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!!

Could have had a stronger second half
25 June 2011 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

Chalo Dilli directed by Shashant Shah is mediocre.

The story is good.

The screenplay is well penned.

But a stronger second half could have made the movie a good watch.

The music is okay.

The dialogs are good.

The cinematography is great.

Performances-Vinay Patahak,as usual is excellent.Lara Dutta is good too.Akshay Kumar in special appearance is okay.

On the whole,Chalo Dilli needed a stronger second half!
