Konkona Sen Sharma,
Delhi-6 attempts to exposes the dual face of a person. We all live in today's world pointing a finger at the other person for all that's going wrong around us. Looking for the devil who can be blamed. In reality the devil resides within us. The story is told dipping the pen in the ink of "chaos" the color of which is black. It's a story of a young American boy "ROSHAN" of Indian origin, who comes to India for the first time, to drop his ailing grandmother. She wants to die in her own soil, and so prepares for her own death. In America having lead a very western lifestyle Roshan wasn't aware of the sites and smells, the food and culture, the religion and beliefs, that an Indian society is filled with. After coming to India he interacts with his grandmother's neighborhood and seamlessly dissolves in as if one of them. Little does he know that the endearing people including his grandmother have another face that feeds the devil within - a devil that resides within each one of them! Written by
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.
