However the cracks will start appearing sooner than expected even at plexes.
Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
Just about a month ago, my closest friend and I took the Metro from Delhi's Connaught Place, the offically acknowledged center of New Delhi, to the arteries and valves of the unpredictably throbbing Chandni Chowk, the city's heart.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
The film brims with talented actors but they don’t have enough meat to bite into. Roshan, the prime mover of events, is under-written so Abhishek comes off as an earnest NRI with a bad accent and little sub-text. Ultimately then, the film is a noble failu

The unique aspect of Delhi 6, by the director’s own admission, are the particular sights and sounds of the city.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
It’s such a delight listening to Delhi-6’s music – you’re strangely reminded of the Rangeela days, when Rahman’s extraordinary music disturbed at first, and then had us in a trance.

'Dikhlade thenge in sabko jo udna na jaane,' a happy-go-lucky voice smugly states at some point during the thrilling course of Delhi 6's [Images] soundtrack.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra thinks out of the box and it's more than evident now.
Taran Adarsh, SIFY
After 'Rang De Basanti' which raised a toast to the young rebel filmmaker Rakeysh Mehra chooses to become a flag bearer for the good-at-heart Indian in 'Delhi 6'.

Welcome to life in Delhi-6, or in other words, Old Delhi where life still goes on with its own dynamics even in the face of modernism - the kind that we find outside our doorstep in every city in India. There is a Delhi-6 in every nook of India and that i

Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
What Delhi 6 lacks is a crisp plotline. The characterization is poor and nothing that the character does is clear. In fact no situation or anything that happens has a good reason and nothing evokes any kind of emotion.
Ashok Nayak, Now Running
Delhi-6 is about such encounters and calls for an introspection.

Mehra sure has his heart in the right place. But couldn’t he have allowed himself… and us, a little more fun?
Shashi Baliga, Hindustan Times 
e, the story begins on the backdrop of the original Delhi where the bylanes and crowded streets mark the herald. Here comes Roshan (Abhishek) along with his ailing grandmother (Waheeda Rahman), she wants to breathe her last in the motherland. This is the

Delhi 6 is progressive for its time but is worth a one time watch. You either love it or hate it.

S Pankaj, Smash Hits
When you have a film like Rang De Basanti to your credit, comparisons are bound to be made. But that would be rather unfair, so this one shall be judged purely on its own merit.
Sarita A Tanwar, Mid-Day
Delhi 6 is one of the most important films to have emerged from Indian cinema in recent years, an allegory with social, religious, political and moral significance, that looks at some recent events in our history where man turned demon in the name of reli
