Welcome to a movie that is a trip down some of our capital`s oldest streets. Delhi-6 is the story of a young American of Indian origin, Roshan (Abhishek Bachchan), who comes to India for the first time. His primary duty revolves around dropping his ailing grandmother back to the old capital, where she wants to retire and spend the rest of her life.
Due to his Western upbringing, Roshan is not prepared for what he sees. Most of the sights and smells, the food, religions and beliefs are new to him and this huge melting pot that`s India leaves him awestruck!
The warm and affectionate neighborhood embraces him with open arms and Roshan sets himself out on a journey he`ll never forget. Amidst all this, he meets the beautiful Bittu (Sonam Kapoor). She`s searching for identity and expression and wants to break free from the typical Indian social structure. Roshan is destined to lose his heart to her. The six in the title refers to the pin code of this old city -- 110006. With pride and love the locals call it Delhi-6.
Starring Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan, Delhi-6 is a story that holds promise. The film will move on the beats of A R Rahman and we are noticing the results of that already - check out Masakali. And after Rang De Basanti, the world is curious to see Rakeysh Mehra`s next outing in Delhi.
