Where did you watch this movie?

This contemporary romantic drama follows the coming-of-age saga of U.S.-based Roshan Mehra, whose mother, Fatima, is Muslim, while his dad is Hindu. When his ailing grandmother, Annapurna, wants to re-locate to Delhi to spend her last days, he accompanies her. Upon arrival, they are greeted by Ali Beg, who wanted to marry Fatima, but was not able to disclose his feelings to her. He also gets to meet the Sharma family, who hope that he will wed Rama, the daughter of Madan, who is busy looking for a groom for his other rather rebellious daughter, Bittu, who wants to be the next Indian Idol. He also gets to meet assorted Muslim and Hindus, who welcome him with open arms, and he gets to witness that lower caste Indians are still being shunned despite of modern technology and the launching of satellites. When reports of a Kala Bandhar terrorizing the community increases, Hindus start to suspect that it may be a Muslim terrorist, while the Muslims fear that it may be a Hindu political ploy to demolish a mosque. Who is the Kala Bandhar? Will Roshan ever come to understand and appreciate the diverse city that surrounds them?

The journey within.
The Monkey-Man incident occurred in Delhi in 2001, while the Delhi metro rail began in 2002.

The movie is set in 2001 but there are scenes showing rehearsals for Indian Idol which did not begin until 2004.

When Abhishek Bachan goes to invite Om Puri for Jagran, the particles of blended cotton sticks to his clothes, but when he is about to leave all the particles disappear.

In the scene where Dadi first discloses that she wants to return to America, Rama is shown putting her head on Rajjo Bhabhi's shoulder. In the next scene, her head is up again, and you can notice her easing her head back onto Rajjo's shoulder.
The plane seen in the song "Dil Gira Dafatan" bears the director's and title's initials - ROMPD6 (Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra Delhi 6) as its livery.

The rap in the film's title track is in French.
