Movie Review -
When on the street, you are on the edge, evading a ďspeedingĒ rickshaw; giving way to a crossing cow; jalebis that reach out to you, which you canít help but grab a few; taxis and buses barely winding their way, street vendors and haggling, bells to horns to prayers to screaming and screeches.
You not only see and hear them all, you live and experience this day in day out. More than that ... you are very much a part of it ... you are in Delhi 6!
There is mayhem and chaos, diverse cultures, differences in beliefs and squabbles - but there is something that connects everyone...
Thatís what American born and brought up Indian Roshan (Abhishek Bachchan) finds out when he brings his ailing granny (Waheeda Rahman) from New York to Delhi, who wishes to spend the last few days of her life in her very own and much loved Delhi-6.
Roshan slowly begins to be a part of this seamless chaos. From attending the Ramleela (local play depicting the epic Ramayana), joining kids flying kites and pigeon flying soirees on the terraces, and even snooker sessions with his Uncle Ali (Rishi Kapoor).
Then there is Bittu (Sonam Kapoor), who is the typical Indian girl with great aspirations, but as almost always is bogged down by the family.
Sonam plays her role to perfection as the carefree Delhi lass who loves dancing and music, yet at home she is as respectful as ever with family!
With all his rational and reasoning Roshan finds it difficult to accept why garbage collector (Divya Dutta) is an untouchable; why the neighbourhood cop (Vijay Raaz) is ruthless; why his uncles (Om Puri & Pavan Malhotra) have built a wall in their house; whereas their wives ever so close to each other.
Abhishek Bachchan is brilliant especially when he is angry, and he has several opportunities to vent his anger when communal forces step in.
Donít expect twist and turns in the story, but there is realism and a message, along with peppered humour. Find out what the white dove Masakali symbolises? What connects everyone?
Look out for a song and sequence that beautifully blends Rohanís New York with Bittuís Delhi 6.
There is something that you must not miss though - and thatís the music! If you thought that the music of Slumdog Millionaire, Ghajini and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (all of them by A.R. Rahman) were superb, then listen to the music of Delhi 6.
Watch this entertaining drama!
