Rating:

Another week, another film and yet another Delhi. This time the one that resides at pin code 110006. Not only does Rajat Kapoor get the exteriors of this world—narrow galis, crammed houses, the knick-knacks—right, it’s also a whole old-fashioned, almost lost slice of urban life that he renders wonderfully alive. Here lives intersect, support and help but also often intrude into each other’s personal spaces. Here community living is as much about grace and camaraderie as it is about interferences and spitefulness. Thankfully, Kapoor doesn’t make it an overbearing ode to old Delhi, even that famous delicacy, daulat ki chaat, makes a fleeting appearance rather than ann­ounce itself aloud.
