Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"Delhi-6 can be maddeningly vague, which robs its ending -- a finale as joltingly (melo)dramatic as any in Bollywood -- of the impact it intends."

‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"Compounding the problem, the film is light on those kitschy musical numbers that make Bollywood movies fun to watch."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Bollywood masala pictures are a bit messy by definition, but this film is simply a disorganized muddle"
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Maybe the runaway success of Slumdog Millionaire will inspire western audiences to sample more authentic Bollywood fare; with its first-rate music, world-class stars, and postcard-ready views of India, Delhi 6 presents an especially welcomin"
