There are streams of film making on Delhi which have suddenly cropped up, one stream tries to expose the underbelly of Delhi which is of the modern times, and whose key features are political connections, bureaucratic linkages, and the desire to make money at cost. This trend was symptomatic through OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE and DEV D, JUGAAD also follows in the same category, as it tries to understand the shady world of the property dealers who at the drop of a hat, would like to fleece you, a fact which was highlighted for the first time through KHOSLA KA GHOSLA.

While Delhi has history to its side, it did not get the same amount of exposure from the filmmakers, probably owing to the fact that though the film makers may have originated from the nearby state of Delhi, aka Punjab, as they shifted to Mumbai during the early sixties and their trials and tribulations to succeed were formulated through the architecture, facade and the social structures of Mumbai, Mumbai continued to be revisited by them on a regular basis.

It however, suddenly changed in the last one year, after Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra bought it into the relief in a big way with RANG DE BASANTI, when in the zeal for innovativeness, as also the diversified climate that Delhi offered for shooting that filmmakers started returning to Delhi. Subhash Ghai returned with BLACK AND WHITE and it was followed by Nikhil Advani's CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA and Anurag Kashyap's DEV D.

Rakesh OmPrakash Mehra's DELHI 6 would indeed add another chapter in the glorious history of the national capital. He has been sort of the catalytic factor inspiring new breed of directors to interpret Delhi in their own manner, so we have a deluge of filmmakers who are trying to tell the story of Delhi through their own sensibility.

After all, it is a city that has been built and destroyed and built again so many times, that each deconstruction and construction could be interpreted in the form of a cinematic history. Which city in the country can boast of such a lineage?
The real icing on the cake for DELHI 6 would be when the lead pairs of Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor are drafted as brand ambassadors for Commonwealth Games, after all they have been in more than one way have been responsible for evincing so much interest in Delhi on a nation wide scale.
