Bombay Velvet Critics Review

Bombay Velvet, a period crime drama set against the backdrop of 1960's stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. Karan Johar debuts in Bollywood and as an antagonist in this film. Bombay Velvet is all about how the city became a Metropolis which is set against the backdrop of love, greed, violence and Jazz.
Karan Johar makes his acting debut as a mustached villain Khambata who evokes some chuckles and a couple of full throated laughs at times unintended. Manish Chaudhary, K K Menon and Satyadeep Misra as Balraj’s childhood friend Chimman, ensure that the “velvet” in Bombay Velvet definitely belongs to the first half. The Sorceress touch unmistakable thanks to top notch editing by Thelma Schoonmaker.
Even if you are an ardent Anurag fan and are expecting another Gangs of Wasseypur, better give it a miss instead of getting monumentally disappointed. However, if you have nothing else to do this weekend and want to have a feeling of how Bombay…sorry Mumbai looked like in the ‘60s, it’s worth taking that risk.
Depsite these few flaws, Bombay Velvet can be watched for Ranbir-Anushka's sizzling chemistry amidst drastically transforming Bombay into Mumbai. Also be ready for Karan Johar's surprise act.
The first half is engaging as Kashyap draws you into Johnny, Rosie and Kaizad’s world. They are all collectively troubled and their present is dictated by their fractured pasts. You get into their heads to a large extent in the first half. The second half isn’t as tightly knit as the first as their lives unravel at a frenetic and confused pace. The climax is violent and gory as Balraj goes on a relentless killing spree with a machine gun. It’s all good, but somewhere you forget what he’s actually fighting for. Having said that, Bombay Velvet makes for a good one-time watch primarily due to good performances from its lead actors and a reminder of a forgotten era.
