One Movie, One Week: Week One; Delhi 6  
This the start to my One movie, One Week challenge. I will watch at least one movie each week for a year.

Week One: Delhi 6
Delhi 6 is a 2009 bollywood movie directed by Rakeysh Ompraksh Mehra. Delhi 6 stars Abhishek Bachchan as Rohan, an American Indian who takes his grandmother ( THE AMAZING Waheeda Rehman) back to India as her dying wish.  Through, this journey Rohan meet many different and interesting character this is the basis of Delhi 6. In addition, when Rohan and his gran land in Delhi there is a mysterious figure called the Black Monkey that is terrorizing Delhi. 

Overall Thoughts:
I really did enjoy Delhi 6. I thought it was fresh and innovative. I loved the issues it tackled such as the whole Hindu-Muslim conflict, the importance of marriage on women in society (Rama & Bittu), the abuse of power by officials, caste system and respect for your heritage. 
I think the way the movie handle these issues were excellent. However, the last 20 mins of the movie I think could have been done better. I don't get why the whole heaven with his grandad was needed. I feel that was just to get Amitabh in the movie. I would have probably liked it more if Rohan did actually die. Horrible I know, but the whole coming back to life after death and meeting with his grandad was so ugh. But I still did like it. 

I'm very glad I watch this movie because I've been iffy on Sonam since the other movies I seen her in I haven't been impressed. But this movie convinced me, she's got it. I hope she does more roles like Bittu and other movies that are a bit off the track. 
The supporting cast was just excellent every single one of them down to the kids.
 I love Rojja, "Hi how do you do? I am myself Rojja", she was too adorable!

well ROM initially did thought of killing rohan and at last min changed it yes if he wouldve died it would've been a whole different thing and much more impactful i heard they changed the climax and indeed killed him for the versions they showed at festivals and were plannign to re release not to sure now but anyways love the film it's the one that makes u think and ofcourse loved every character esp bittu

Yeah, I read that too. I think if the ending was better I would love it even more.

Pretty picspam!
I didn't like the movie though. I liked what it was trying to achieve but it failed, imo. It was very half-baked.
IA about Sonam though. I saw her in IHLS and Aisha recently and she was horrible but she was really good in this movie.
