Delhi 6

A very well made movie, with some terrific performances, Delhi 6 is a must watch for any Delhiite, especially if one has spent a significant amount of time outside India.

This is a movie that any Indian can relate to. It talks about the little things and the big things in our everyday life, the sometimes ridiculous idiosyncrasies, the hard-hitting truth and the beautiful things about our country. It presents it all in a way that makes you laugh in some parts, and touches you deep within in others.

I loved Sonam Kapoor's character in the film. The bubbly, cheerful girl who really wants to be somebody certainly strikes a chord somewhere. Abhishek Bachchan has delivered a completely adorable performance. His Genda Phool dance is especially cute. And of course, Waheeda Rehman, Vijay Raaz, Divya Dutta and Rishi Kapoor have added to it all with their brilliant performances.

I like the songs in the movie (separate post in the offing), but what I liked more was the way they were used, and I liked all the song videos. All quite natural and beautiful.

But yes, I think the end could have been a little more powerful. It would have added a little to the overall appeal of the film. I'm not going to write how it could have been done, because then I would have to write how it is and spoil the end for some of my readers.

I'd rate this movie at nine on a scale of ten. Definitely worth a watch.

Question before reading the post, does it contain spoilers?

It turns out that the newspapers have given the movie 2 on 5 :( Where's the discrepancy???

I think it was rated at 3 in Delhi Times... but I have learnt to ignore the newspaper ratings
