Delhi-6 Review

Delhi -6 is so criticized for one and only one reason…as it’s a movie made by the RDB director…Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra
An over-hyped, over-publicized and over-criticized movie…

If we think of it as any other movie…it’s a movie about an NRI (Abhishek Bachchan) accompanying his sick grandmother to her Delhi house. This movie is the narration of his perspective of India. During this narration many faces of India is shown… loving, sentimental, faith followers, myth believers, media frenzy dictated, authoritarian police, corruption, caste, emphasis on marriage, young dreams and communalism to count a few

The biggest strength of the movie is that there is no moral glorification of India… like a lot of other movies say that the west is culturally bankrupt and other fabricated statements to make India score over them... this movie show India as it is…with its strengths and weaknesses
The second as a movie is to create a rainbow of tangible characters… and some great performance by the actors like Om Puri, Pawan Mehlotra, Vijay Raaz, Divya Dutta, Rishi Kapoor, Cyrus, Prem Chopra, Sonam Kpoor and many more

The key weaknesses included some over dramatic scenes, the sections when the movie seems direction less and the tradition of Indian hero waking from the dead …

The music is awesome…Prason Joshi and A.R. Rehman delivers as per their competence… even though appropriate, it’s a little disappointing to see only pieces of these songs used in the movies for those who already loved them

After thought… this movie is actually like RDB… a movie that provides a tangential message on a burning issue faced by India head-on…except for one difference…though patriotism is a topic that gives you pleasure and pride …while communism is something that make us grimace …

My rating:3.5/5
