US critics give thumbs up to 'Delhi 6'

Slumdog Millionaire In the wake of the Slumdog Millionaire success, the film critics in the US have given thumbs up to Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Delhi 6 as "a fair introduction to Indian cinema for outsiders".

The movie, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor , has got a firm nod of approval from a number of critics including Los Angeles Times, Village Voice in New York City and worldfilm.about.com.

LA Times critic Michael Ordona writes: "Anchored by a fascinating score from Oscar winner A R Rahman naturalistic performances and a wide cinematic palette, 'Delhi-6' is a fair introduction to Indian cinema for outsiders - who will have no clue at times why the audience is laughing."




He adds: "The songs and score are memorable, and director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has a deep bag of cinematic tricks to illuminate the distinct patterns, such as flights into Hindu mythology or a dream sequence blending New York and Delhi."

According to villagevoice.com, the movie is "pretty much irresistible and, in that sense, represents the enigmatic India of today as well as anything ever could."

The movie site about.com said: "With its first-rate music, world-class stars, and postcard-ready views of India, 'Delhi-6' presents an especially welcoming option."

The movie, a journey into the culture and ethos of Old Delhi, has opened well at the US box office and had the third highest per-theatre average for any film in the Top 25. However, back home in India, the film has got mixed response from critics.
