Its been movie time for me surrounded by exams. Saw Billu Barber last week. An average movie I must say. But Irrfan Khan has acted well. Lara Dutta was hopeless!
This week (actually just back sometime ago) I saw Delhi-6. Now I'm assuming (in fact, sure) that everyone reading this would haf seen Rang de Basanti. After such a movie the expectations from Rakeysh Mehra would surely be high. Delhi-6 falls in a different category. While its not a nation-awakening movie or such its like any other videsh-se-returned-love-your-country kind of movie. The plot is good. But I think the picturization could've been better. The movie has so many "cut-to"s that one may lose track of whats happening (a la Ghajni, eh? :D ).
Oh one interesting snippet: The movie is called Delhi-6 because it is picturized in Chandi Chowk, Delhi whose postal code is 110 006; hence the name Delhi - 6.
I guess its become a fad these days in Bollywood movies to include a couple of Hindi abuses and Delhi-6 is no different! Abhishek is an NRI and accompanies his Grandmother back to India (Delhi-6 - Chandni Chowk), to "leave" her where she wants to get back - her home. Everything is peaceful in the area, people of different religions live peacefully. Then comes the twist - Kala Bandar... what next???!! Ok sorry! No spoilers here... watch it! :D In a way, what the movie teaches about Kala Bandar sure is true.
The music is superb, no second thoughts about that. I recommend everyone to hear the songs. Overall I would rate the movie to be average to ok.
Go watch the movie, till then "Masakalli Masakalli... ud matakalli..." :D
PS: One thing I haf to mention is that like all typical Bollywood movies Abhishek comes back to life after dying; that too after interacting with his dead grandfather - Amitabh :D :P
