Entertainment, entertainment and entertainment was the buzz word around which the whole idea of THE DIRTY PICTURE was woven around and it has emerged as a punch line for the film, inviting wolf whistles and appreciation. The popularity that the dialogue has attained underlines the premise that a film indeed becomes a real success story if a single dialogue or a punch line catches the imagination of the audience.
It used to be a leit motif of Hindi cinema where dialogues dominated the construct of the picture and ensured repeat crowds. But somehow under the influence of glitz and glamour an important ingredient of cinema, a garnishing that created a sense of uniqueness around the character lost out. No wonder the films were flopping dime a dozen, on the other hand, films which had powerful dialogues were lapped up by the audience.
THE DIRTY PICTURE has again harked upon and built up nostalgia around movie viewing and it provides perfect opportunity to undertake a trip down memory lane through the immortal dialogues of Hindi cinema. A caveat needs to be introduced here however, it in the form of the fact that element of immortality is more a glue that is associated with films of the yore than of the present times.
