| An Outstanding Unique movie from Bollywood. Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment.
The Dirty Picture is a biographical movie on the life of Silk Smitha. The story of movie is unique and interesting unlike todays bollywood movies. Vidhya Balan as Silk in the film is truly outstanding. Hats off to Vidhya for such incomparable and incredible role. Naseeruddin Shah had also given excellent performance. Character of Emraan Hashmi in the movie is very unique. He has also did a great job in The Dirty Picture. Role of Tusshar Kapoor in the movie was an average role. Story, script and direction of movie makes The Dirty Picture very unique bollywood movie. Music is also good. The first part of movie will catch your attention. But after interval, movie will become slower.

The Dirty Picture is a story of a strong woman, Reshma (Vidya Balan), who can go to any extent to fulfill her dream of becoming an actress. After few hurdles, she becomes an instant sensation 'Silk,' a woman every man desires. But, on her journey to stardom, she eventually starts craving for true love and feels betrayed each time. She gets the first blow, when she misunderstands lust to be love in case of her all-time favourite actor and later a co-star Suryakant (Naseerudin Shah). She is almost trying to cope up when Ramakant (Tusshar Kapoor), a storywriter too disappoints her, though that's truly unfortunate, as he has no wrong intentions. She gets her final blow, when stardom too starts bidding a goodbye to her. Lastly, when her all-time enemy (Ebrahim) Emraan Hashmi, a director turns into her passionate lover, she encounters a sad death.

Overall, Entertainment, entertainment and entertainment. The Dirty Picture is an outstanding bollywood movie with a unique story. It's highly recommended movie.
