I'm glad India has a culture & religion of her own. Having one's own
religion & culture is integrate to self-identity and self-respect.

Taking on a foreign religion is to worship the achievements of some
foreign culture which has no bearing on one local culture. In the
case of islam, great effort is expended to teach the converted to hate
& destroy their culture. Hence the only thing converts can mindlessly
babble about is the achievements of some dude in saudi arabia not
their own country.

Very good indeed , the characters are well etched and you do care
for them , and it gives of a real feel of what it is like to live in
the crowded areas of Delhi.
A R Rheman's music is pretty bad apart from the pidgeon song , and
its only when you hear the old style songs -Babhuji dheera chalo- that
Sonan Kapoor sings to get on Indian idol , that the heart begins to
It will get a fatwa . Hindus are offended -' you put red line on a
stone and consider it God! ' says one character , but that is fine ,
Hindus are used to making fun of their religion as it is a fun
religion. But when the same character says to Muslims' you pray five
times a day and it will get you nowhere!' -that to Muslims is deeply
deeply offensive as in their heart of hearts they truly mistakenly
believe that Allah exists! and listens to all these prayers.
What is outstanding and really enjoybale is the Ram Leela peagent
which takes place over days and which shows how you can tell the same
story in so many different and interesting and entrancing ways.

Delhi-6 fails to crack domestic BO

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

By now, everyone knows that Delhi-6 has proved a

The gang of Delhi-6 on Indian Idol

The question is, how has Delhi-6 performed on weekdays?
Did it fall heavily? Monday was part holiday, yet the
film fell at several plexes where it was holding fort.

Too loud: Read the Delhi-6 review here

At most single screens, well, if the opening weekend
numbers ranged between 15 per cent - 25 per cent across
the country, you can easily guess the kind of business it
would do on weekdays. There has been a sharp decline from

The verdict is loud and clear: Delhi-6 has under-
performed in India.

Images from Delhi-6

What does it mean for UTV? Delhi-6 is an expensive
proposition and in view of the fact that the business is
seeing a downward pattern, the distributors should end up
losing money. Of course, it's a bit too early to gauge
the quantum of loss, but seeing the low tide, it's
evident that the distributors would find it difficult to
recover costs.

Sometimes, it's not the film, but the price that fails.

Masakali: Rahman's 10 best songs

In this case, the film as also its price has failed.

What does it mean for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra? There's no
denying that Rakeysh is a fantastic technician, who knows
the craft well. But he has been let down by the
screenplay this time. Also, every film-maker needs to
study the viability of the actor before he spends an 'x'
amount on a project. Rakeysh should also take a note of

What does it mean for Abhishek Bachchan? Drona (solo
Abhishek starrer) was an unmitigated disaster, Dostana
was an average success (although there are reports that
the distributors haven't recovered the huge price they
paid for its rights) and now Delhi-6, again a solo hero
film, has under-performed in India. His ratings are sure
to go down after the latest crash.
