DELHI - 6 :A soul-stirring movie

Updated on February 26, 2009

A journey in search of a mirror!

When Ruby and I went to view Delhi - 6 yesterday evening, we were not too sure if this would be a worthwhile experience. We went to a picture hall after ages.... all our viewing now-a-days is through television !

As this film by Rakeysgh Omprakash Mehra started rolling on the huge screen in front of us, we could not but admire the superb quality of cinematography and music and fine characterisation by he main actors. At the same time , we admired the restraint ROM has shown in editing so that no shot drags on.

As the story unfolded, we saw how brilliantly Mehra has developed the story towards the climax scene-by-scene and brought the viewer standing in front his/her soul's mirror ! Ruby and I stood stood back in the cinema hall, with a few fellow-viewers, watching the 'mirror' Mehra presented at the end of the show framing the actors , deeply moved by this film, by the total experience . We came out of the picture hall convinced that only a Director of ROM's calibre could visualise and deliver a film of this quality.

Do go .... and view Delhi-6. It is not a feel-good movie. It is different from RDB. But, with no less a serious message, no less intelligently compiled !

Some artists are just brilliant : Rishi Kapoor, Waheeda Rehman and ... of course, Abhishek bachchan. Wnat a restrained performance he gave ! At every moment during the viewing, we saw 'Roshan' standing in front of us and not an actor whose name is Abhishek Bachchan.

Mehra's slips are easy to find. Many reviewers in Newspapers and TV-shows have done that . We are glad that we ignored the comments of such persons and did not miss out this film !

Once again : Please do go .... and view Delhi-6.
