Story : The film is about the plight of senior citizens who feel lonely and unsafe in cities, after their children choose to settle abroad for better career opportunities.

Review : Dilli gang delves into the day-to-day problems that ageing parents face, after their ambitious children abandon them so that they could focus on their high-paying jobs in other countries. Director Ashish Tyagi sheds light on a highly relevant topic for this modern day dilemma has been plaguing our society. While all parents want their children to be successful, they do not wish to be left alone, especially in old age. Law Minister Kapil Sibbal's poems add to the message, this film attempts to send across to all those children, who are too busy to notice that their parents need them.

An elderly couple residing in Delhi (Nina Kulkarni, Darshan Jariwala) faces similar issue, when their son Ashish (Amir Dalvi), who's based in Germany for business, rarely visits them. To add to their woes, is the rise in crimes committed against senior citizens in the capital. Cut to another track, we see a four-member-gang, who is perpetually on the lookout for senior citizens, whom they can loot and then kill. Sadly, the crime track is the least effective.

Besides, the two tracks fail to blend easily. The family sub-plot is highly emotional and manages to touch your heart, thanks to Nina Kulkarni and Darshan Jariwala's heartrending performances, while the whole cop investigating the case and the criminals roaming around freely, in search of new targets or new 'mummy-papa' as they keep saying throughout the movie looks way too feeble.

Overall, an ineffective execution fails to do justice to the good intent and solid performances.
