Two straight guys pretend to be gay in order to secure a Miami apartment. When both of them fall for their roommate Neha, hilarity ensues as they strive to convince one and all that they're gay, secretly trying to win her heart.
U.S.-based Roshan Mehra's mother, Fatima, is Muslim, while his dad is Hindu. When his ailing grandmother, Annapurna, wants to re-locate to Delhi to spend her last days, he accompanies her. Upon arrival, they are greeted by Ali Beg, who wanted to marry Fatima, but was not able to disclose his feelings to her. He also gets to meet the Sharma family, who hope that he will wed Rama, the daughter of Madan, who is busy looking for a groom for his other rather rebellious daughter, Bittu, who wants to be the next Indian Idol. He also gets to meet assorted Muslim and Hindus, who welcome him with open arms, and he gets to witness that lower caste Indians are still being shunned despite of modern technology and the launching of satellites. When reports of a Kala Bandhar terrorizing the community increases, Hindus start to suspect that it may be a Muslim terrorist, while the Muslims fear that it may be a Hindu political ploy to demolish a mosque.

What a delight! The streets of Delhi haven't ever looked as affable as through the camera of Binod Pradhan in Delhi-6. To be honest, when I had heard the music release, a few songs seemed out-of-place/non-inspiring, but every note played in the movie seems to blend seamlessly with the plot.
It's not a perfect movie - the plot seems to be unconvincing in the last 20 minutes, but that doesn't even manage to scrape the lingering happy feeling that you're left with from the previous couple of hours of the movie.
I found three remarkable things about the movie. I've already mentioned the cinematography - it makes you wish you were there. Then there is a bunch of the most heartwarming, hilarious scenes written and enacted brilliantly. Yet, the performance by the actors is what remains with you when you step out of the theater. Divya Dutta, Deepak Dobriyal, and Vijay Raaz stand out and have such impact through their few appearances that you end up believing they were on screen for almost the entire movie. Waheeda Rahman and Rishi Kapoor remind us that Old is Gold. In fact, the entire cast is full of life, and has carried the story on its shoulders through every scene. Abhishek Bachhan has done justice to his talent.
If you're a fan of the old run-on-the-mill Indian movie, better stay at home. If you wish to see a delightful approach to cinema, go catch the movie.
I rate it at 7/10.
