Movie Info

American-born Roshan (Abhishek Bachchan) agrees to return with his grandmother Annapurna (Waheeda Rehman), to the walled-off area of Delhi, India, where she grew up. Attracted to neighbor Bittu (Sonam Kapoor) and enchanted by the neighborhood's strong sense of tradition, Roshan gradually learns about Old Delhi's less attractive aspects, including caste discrimination and widespread corruption. Meanwhile, rumors of a mysterious, havoc-wreaking black monkey put the city on edge.

  • Mehra's follow-up to his Bafta-nominated Rang de Basanti is another gritty slice of political Bollywood cinema.

  • Anchored by a fascinating score from Oscar winner A.R. Rahman, naturalistic performances and a wide cinematic palette, Delhi-6 is a fair introduction to Indian cinema for outsiders -- who will have no clue at times why the audience is laughing.

  • The narrative equivalent of urban sprawl undermines Delhi-6, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's admirably ambitious but ultimately frustrating musical dramedy.

  • Compounding the problem, the film is light on those kitschy musical numbers that make Bollywood movies fun to watch.

    February 20, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Delhi-6 can be maddeningly vague, which robs its ending -- a finale as joltingly (melo)dramatic as any in Bollywood -- of the impact it intends.

    February 20, 2009 | Rating: 2/5
  • It's pretty much irresistible and, in that sense, represents the enigmatic India of today as well as anything ever could.

Audience Reviews for Delhi 6

  • Sep 03, 2010
    (2009 Director: Rakesh Omprakash Mehra) Interesting tale of a young American man of Indian descent (Abhishek Bachchan) who returns to India for his Grandmother, who wishes to return so that she may die in India. Roshan has his own journey of self-discovery getting touch with his roots in this foreign land where there is animosity between Muslim and HIindu...where the roads are blocked with a sacred cow is giving birth. The believed "terrorizing" by the illusive "Black Monkey" was primarily a humorous idea that gets carried a bit too far. (more review to follow)

    An interesting movie that centralizes around a neighborhood where everyone's treated either as a friend, and/or a member of the family. Morals, ideals, and characterizations are tested when an imaginary antagonist is invented and begins to create chaos. Roshan accompanies his grandmother to India, and is introduced to a world he's never known before. Differences of opinions began to escalate when "the Black Monkey" begins to terrorize the neighborhood, and its people. Great cast- Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Waheeda Rehman, and Om Puri. Worth seeing!
