Expectations were very high… of course they would be. After all the last movie by the director was RANG DE BASANTI which went on to become a cult film! That is definitely an incredible feat to follow. But I guess whoever watched Delhi 6 will definitely say that they were left a tad disappointed. It was a fine movie don’t get me wrong on that but somewhere down the line you almost feel cheated while watching the movie coz you go to the theatre expecting an entertainment sort of movie. After all the promo song was Masakali which was full of energy & almost makes it look like a fun movie to watch.
I wish the same energy was translated to the entire movie. But it was a rather slow movie except for maybe the last 15 minutes or so. More than an entertainer it was sort of a movie with a moral. Not surprising coming from a director whose previous movie was on similar lines. Rakyesh Mehra’s movie’s focus on the youth. He believes that the youth of our nation can change the corrupt system of our country. And he goes to great lengths to show that in his movies and this one was no different. I thought Abhisheks performance was amazing. He makes you believe in his character. He brings a certain coolness to his character. The biggest disappointment for me was Sonam Kapoor. Not her performance, it was superb but the length of her role. She was just used to get the audience into the theatres with the promo song. You yearn for more of her in the movie because the screen lights up everytime she appears.
All in all it was an ok sort of movie which you can’t watch more than once for sure. If the story line was a bit pacy or some more humor was added along the with the drama then it would’ve been better. I would give it 3 stars.
