Excellent backdrop in a routine but meaningful storylineBy a customer from Woking , 21 May 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]The film tried to address couple of social issues - casteism, religion, NRI's in a backdrop of bollywood romance - in a successful attempt. The story as the name suggests is built around Delhi -6, Chandni Chowk which has been captured beautifully. Anyone who has visited that part of the world would know what challenges the crew would have to face.
The cast played the role very nicely but would have preferred Abhishek to be replaced by Hrithhik as he has more of a flair which was required by the role.

Very goodBy dumbolives (269 reviews) from Shetland , 13 Jul 2010I thought this film was really really well done. Shame about the disc quality which meant that I missed how it ended but the start and middle were good! Lovely characters, well written script and thoughtful storyline. Beautiful shots and some really good acting made this very enjoyable to watch, only needed more songs and it would have been perfect!
Don't bother!By a customer from CR8 , 04 May 2010Do not bother seeing this film it's just not worth it! There is hardly any story. The setting and the acting were very average. That's all I can say about it.
LOVEd ABHI!!By a customer from Halifax , 11 Mar 2010Love Abhishek in the movie....he is too cute to resist....Sonam is still very immatured...she need some brush up...
Overall superb acting by everybody...minute detailing of every bit....storyline is ok not very strong.
thought provokingBy a customer from Camberley , 26 Jan 2010great cinematography in the narrow streets of Delhi - storyline a bit cheesy!
OutstandingBy UnexpectedDelight (13 reviews) from London , 02 Jan 2010A slow-building film that has lasting resonance. Set in the small, tight community of the area Delhi 6, the film gives a quality portrayal of a group of people whose lives are so interweaved that every action has a ripple effect on each other a good a metaphor for the effects of globalization. The story lacks the usual neat clichéd mainstream Hollywood/Hollywood veneer which may make it not as popular as it could be, but it does make it more enticing if you are willing to stretch. There was a good balance of the endearing and the challenging things about India, and as they werent compartmentalized they became all the more harder to distinguish, demonstrating the complexity of people, family, community, society, country and so on. The local politics and the politics of religion, caste, identity all had they parts to play and were deftly woven into the plot.
The juxtaposition between the exaggerated drama of the Ramleela and the urban legend of the Kala Bandar are excellent and at times I felt the film that a touch of Eternal Sunshine/Adaptation somehow.
The collection of characters and the actors who played them were excellent, to the point where it did not seem like they were acting at all. I wonder how the Director was able to engender this in the cast? Ali Baig, Jalebi, the two feuding brothers and Inspector Ranvijay were particularly strong performances. Abhishek Bachchan delivered a fine performance, so subtle and even handled (there were huge parts of the film were his hardly said anything and conveyed everything through looks or gave the space to the other actors) that I could see him being an actor who would do well, to hone his talent instead of improving his popularity, if he continued down an acting path less well travelled.
The music was fitting and excellent, it didnt distract from the story but had enough impact to complete the sensory experience.
