Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: Hindi ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), Arabic ( Subtitles ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Making Of, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: The film opens with the ailing grandmother Annapurna at the office of a cardiac surgeon in New York. The surgeon indicates that Annapurna suffers from heart blockage and may not have long to live. Annapurna insists on returning to Delhi, her hometown, where she intends to retire in peace. Though her son and daughter-in-law object vehemently, her American-born grandson Roshan (who has a special bond with his grandmother) agrees to bring her back.Annapurna is received with pomp and ceremony when she returns to her home in Old Delhi. Roshan is initially stunned by the mad rush of various neighbors: Ali Baig the renaissance man, feuding brothers Madangopal and Jaigopal, their wives and families, Mamdu the halwai, Gobar the simpleton, Sethji and many others. However, Roshan eventually warms to the place and wholeheartedly embraces the sense of community in it. He accompanies his grandmother to the Ramleelas, hangs out at Mamdu's sweet stall, plays with the children, and gradually becomes steeped in the culture of the place.Roshan is also slowly exposed to some sobering realities. When Annapurna faints (due to fluctuating blood sugar levels) and they scramble to get her to a hospital, he finds the roads choked by traffic because of an impromptu ceremony around a cow in labor; he is further surprised when his grandmother, despite her stupor, stumbles forth to seek the blessings of a sacred cow; and he is astounded when the local police seem to encourage the practice. Roshan begins to understand the feuds and social issues in the community. Madangopal's sist...Delhi-6

Review

With a complex topic like communalism handled with utmost sensitivity, yet in a simplistic manner, Delhi 6 is a movie that weaves a social message, in the most brilliant and subtle manner. Just look at the diversity of topics addressed convincingly through brilliant performances and slick editing, you will realize why this tale is worth a watch! --platform47.com

Mehra has captured a snapshot of current India and woven it in a beautiful story. The screenplay is amazing. The interplay between the ram-lila and the story is quite brilliant. His attention to detail is mind boggling. From how real the whole Chandni Chowk feel he has managed to showcase, to the naming of the characters in the film(Gobar, Jalebi and how the two come together). Everyone has acted really well and the casting is perfect. --platform47.com

This Hindi film truly represents the face of the Indian youth and the attitude of the Delhi(ites) who love and live life in their own way and according to their own rules. It spins across a social message with its speciality lying in the way the subject is handled using Hindu mythology as a base for montage. --platform47.com

Format: DVD
India is an exotic foreign land to Roshan, a New Yorker of Indian origin (played by Abhishek Bachchan), who brings his sick grandmother back to her Delhi home. Filled with gorgeous urban footage, the film captures the wonder of seeing India for the first time, through an American's eyes, and the initial shock of amazement that any American who's ever been there will never forget. Roshan is thoroughly enchanted by all of it--the crumbling family abode in Chandni Chowk (one of the oldest parts of Delhi), its narrow lanes, its feisty neighbors--particularly the beautiful Bittu (Sonam Kapoor)--and its rich array of traditions. However, he chafes at the injustices he sees that offend his American sense of equality and fairness, putting him at odds with a place he suddenly can't live without. A bizarre subplot about a black monkey that's terrorizing the city--which is supposed to be symbolic of the discord that's always simmering below Delhi's surface--overtakes the main story, culminating in a ludicrous climax that ruins what started out as an intoxicating plunge into the soul of a complicated city. - The Bollywood Ticket: The American guide to Indian movies (Subscribe: The Bollywood Ticket)

Format: DVD
After the successful Aks and the blockbuster Rang De Basanti Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra directs this one. Delhi 6 follows Abhishek a half hindu and half muslim to come to India to help his grandmother Waheeda Rehman spend her last days in her birthplace. Set in old Delhi hence the zipcode 6. The movie provides a collage of characters and their brief character sketches and thus remains so. It does not come to the point until the end and then leaves us in a lurch wanting some more.
The first half is a gamut of characters from the two brothers Om Puri and Pawan Malhotra, the corrupt politician played by Vijay Raaz, the sultry untouchable Divya Dutta, the wicked money lender Prem Chopra, the idol aspirant Sonam Kapoor and the romantic bachelor Rishi Kapoor, all interesting but underdeveloped characters. The characters interact against the backdrop of a vicious monkey attack which is never solved.
The movie meanders towards the end with a very vague ending. Vijay Raaz is excellent, so is Pawan Malhotra, Abhishek Bachchan is getting better; the rest of the cast is completely wasted. The music and the cinematography are excellent. 3stars 12/28/09

Delhi 6 is a good movie with great images and music. I liked the views of Delhi as well as the storyline. The acting was pretty good and only added to the visual treat. This is a movie that tries to illustrate that there is evil in everybody; we should not try to blame others for our own bad/negative behavior. What most amazed me was the realistic way that a small disagreement can grow and take on a life of its own (especially within a political system that is very "permissive" in some respects, but repressive at the same time). What a great example of the culture shock one experiences when submerged in a foreign culture/society.
Don't be turned off this movie by ho-hum reviews - take a chance and I think that you will not be disappointed.

Little B's acting just gets better and better. This is another story about people with few special effects. He goes on a mission to help his grand mother and finds his own mission of falling in love with a girl who hates him. Somewhat typical story but done very well.

It is unfortunate for us in the health field that the closing scene is so far fetched!

I try to watch all of his movies because of his talent. He does not disappoint.

Movies are a kaleidoscope of poetry, prose, painting, music and more - you'll understand this when you watch Delhi 6. Yes, this movie will affect your sensibilities; your hopes, desires, aversions and aspirations will be kindled and sometimes even questioned. I should also warn you about the 'Bollywood' packaging. But once you surrender yourself to the movie, i.e. accept it with an open mind you won't be disappointed with the 3-hour journey it takes you through - certainly I wasn't:).
