Chocolate is a dumbed down Bollywood version of The Usual Suspects. Well, dumbed down & sexed up with ample Tanushree Dutta cleavage. Assuming you know the premise of the original, the Hindi movie works around the fact that Irfan (orig:Kevin Spacey) is feeding his imagination off the lead stories on the cover of a GQ magazine, which incidentally carries the photo of Anil Kapoor- Britain’s #1 lawyer (his words). At one point in the movie, they zoom in on the cover, as Irfan is in the middle of another one of his yarns. This is what it looked like:
And in the end, when Anil Kapoor realizes that he was being taken for a ride, check out the changes applied to the cover.

The entire top right corner is altered to include the name, Murtaza Arzai, that has been taunting the lawyer (like Keyser Soze in the original):
Another headline inserted to justify the title & the euphemism used for drugs in the movie:
And this last photo is of me dropping my Starbucks cup when I realized how I had been had by the director. Nifty work there, Vivek Agnihotri (that’s the terribly insecure, dumbass director).
Yeah, I know…the movie is so horrid that nit-picking on it is like expecting Shahid Afridi to grow a brain, but it’s still amusing, no?
