Delhi 6. A story of the city. Once was. Now is. This is a mirror to the society we live in. The chaos, the happiness, the politics, the culture, the cursory vignettes of life, the deep rooted malpractices, the nuances, the filial spirit, the religious zeal, the pig headedness, the fear social travesty, the ugly infrastructure, the beautiful people, the food, the homes and the will to live!
Every frame is a mixture of what the city and the country provides us at large. Every conversation has an underlying "Indian ness". This was unseen before and this has made the movie a milestone in itself.
There are many instances of cinematic flourishes that hold us in thrall. The look on Om Puri's face when his daughter has refused marriage, the old and weakened Waheeda pushing through the crowd towards the cow diety, the untouchable Divya giving it back to a few leches in the locality, the ecstacy of Sonam dancing in a photo studio and the religious gathering at a Jaagaran and the competition that ensues. These were extraordinary scenes and salutations to the maker who put this all up with great care and understanding.
The acting by all of the ensemble cast was astounding. But, the cake shall go to Vijay Raaz and Divya Dutta for pulling off memorable characters.
The music in one word - fantabulous!
In all, a layered story. Rakeysh Mehra has decided that it is time the Indian people needed to grow up and understand something like what Suryakant Tripathi Nirala used to do with poetry long back!
