Bombay Velvet: Reviews

It is the story of one ordinary man who goes against all odds and forges his destiny to become a 'Big Shot'. A film about jazz clubs, a passionate love story, a growing metropolis and a phenomenal hunger for a good life.

Set in 1960s Bombay, the film tells the story of a boxer, Johnny Balraj (Ranbir Kapoor), and an aspiring jazz singer, Rosie (Anushka Sharma), and how their hopes and dreams collide with their individual realities.

    Bombay Velvet is more a throwback to older, better gangster films by Hollywood legends like Martin Scorsese, the Coen brothers and Curtis Hanson. There’s a noticeable lack of humour in the film, even though the film’s elements are not dark enou..

    Bombay Velvet Review: Direction Anurag Kashyap is one of the finest dark film makers.He said that he wanted to enter into mainstream cinema with Bombay Velvet.Let’s see whats the result. Bombay Velvet is a beautiful mixture of thrill, drama, romance and action.The film is slow at the start but it picks up pace soon.Showcasing a street fighter passion, anger and struggle, Anurag Kashyap wins you with the tale.It is a story of ambition, love, greed and music.No other director would be able to pull this off other than Kashyap.Only he can think out of the box.Screenplay is superb as always for Anurag films.Editing should have been tighter.Some scenes should have been avoided which were repetitive and make no difference to the actual story. Technically film is brilliant having stunning visuals.It is not easy to recreate the Bombay of 1960’s.Kudos to the technical staff.The music by Amit Trevedi may have not become popular but it will grow rapidly after the film.He has composed some melodious compositions which will be remembered for a long time.A treat for Jazz lovers.A special mention for background score which lifts many scenes in the film. Bombay Velvet Review: Star Performances Ranbir Kapoor as always steals the show with his unmissable act.He will make you breath Johnny Balraj.He once again proved that he can off any kind of role.Outstanding. Anushka Sharama is riding high on the success of his films PK & NH 10 and also the critical appreciation she received for those films.She continues her good form and delivers an excellent performance. Karan Johar is the surprise package in Bombay Velvet.He looks calm and cool as a business tycon.He redefine the villains in Bollywood.Surely debut of the year. In the supporting cast Kay Kay Menon and Sidharth Basu are brilliant as always.Vivan Shah looks cool too.
