i wanna stay postive, but aakhir kabh takk.
even taran is hush hush.

I know right. No reviews at all, wonder if some critics found it really terrible or something. Things look very fishy to me. LOL Anyway, do din baad pata chal hi jaayega. LOL

i can't tell you my stress level right now. sarra badan kaap raha hai.
i say the critics reviews for such a big movie does matter. the wom has to be positve from all corners to recover any cost. if anything, i have a feeling this movie is painfully slow..which in other words.. a drag.
and i have noticed that most critics get really nasty when this happens.
most critics like anurag's work. maybe this time there is disappointment, and they doing a favor for him by keeping their mouth shut. they will open up once the movie hits the halls on friday..the d-day.

I know. Most of the Ranbir fans have been waiting for this movie since a long time. To be honest, I never liked Ranbir but after visiting this thread...I have developed a soft-corner for that guy, thanks to his fans. LOL So if anything, I want the movie to fulfill the expectations of his fans. Hope it does. Embarrassed I agree, reviews do matter for an Anurag Kashyap movie but let's see how it all pans out. Big smile

I dragged one of my friends to watch HNY. We were so traumatised that we couldn't even make fun of the movie. So I get your friend...but there's no way this movie is gonna be so terrible. Doesn't your friend like KJo? Everybody is already going gaga over him. So don't worry, KJo will save you from your friend's wrath. She'll end up falling in love with Khambatta. LOL

BTW..I' was surprised when I read about the pre_booking. At my place, even the advanced bookings haven't started properly.

Not cute..They get scared to watch films with me LOL  

Oh in case of films which are so bad that they are good, you can atleast laugh & have fun..Then there is the other category where you cant even laugh cos its such a pain to sit through it..And i don like walking out mid-way cos i feel like am wasting money so its torture LOL Na she doesn't really like KJo..She is a SidM fan so i have to watch Brothers in the theatre to compensate for this LOL

Yeah booking started yesterday at my place..And most theatres are houseful atleast for Friday LOL

I talked with the RK fan who saw the premiere at Dubai yesterday. She said it was amazing and is more confident about BO after watching the film. Others with her found it amazing as well. Not really fast paced and said reviews could be same as it was for Barfi. Also said boxing/action scenes were good and kept everyone glued to their seats. Fan's perspective still I don't think she was trying to over hype or anything.

Bombay Velvet Review

May 13, 2015


Bombay Velvet is a crime drama film directed & co produced by Anurag Kashyap.It stars Ranbir Kapoor,Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar in the lead roles with Kay Kay Menon,Vivaan Shah and Sidharth Basu appearing in the supporting roles.Bombay Velvet is scheduled to release on 15 May 2015.

Bombay Velvet Review


The first trailer of the film was not received well so the second trailer was released which was impressive.The music of the film may have not chartbuster songs but it is growing up.But when you have big names like Ranbir,Anushka,Karan and Anurag Kashyap then you do not expect less than a masterpiece.

Bombay Velvet Review: Story

Bombay Velvet is based on historian Gyan Prakash's book Mumbai Fables.The film is set in the Bombay of 1960's.Bombay Velvet is the story of one ordinary man who goes against all odds and forges his destiny to become a big shot.

The story of the film revolves around Johnny Balraj (Ranbir Kapoor) who is a street fighter at the docks.He has a love interest Rosie Noronha (Anushka Sharma) who is an aspiring singer.Johnny Balraj wanted to change his fate and achieve some thing big in his life.Kaizad Khambata (Karan Johar) who is a Parsi media mogul with a high-end attitude helps Johnny Balraj to fulfil his dream.Khambata sets up a club named Bombay Velvet and gave in the custody of Johnny Balraj.But soon Johnny realised that he has been trapped by Khambata and also betrayed by Rosie.The whole film revolves around how their hopes and dreams collide with their individual realities.We will not reveal much as it will decrease your curiosity.

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.

Whats Good:

Johnny Balraj aka Ranbir

Stunning Visuals

Ranbir-Anushka Chemistry


Music & Background Score

Unconventional Climax

Deadly Karan Johar


What's Bad:


Some loopholes In Script

Slow Pace

Limited Appeal


Bombay Velvet Review: Last Word

Anurag Kashyap does it again.No doubt that after watching Bombay velvet audience will be divided into two groups.One will love each bit of it while other will completely dislike it.Honestly it has some weak points too but overall Bombay Velvet is a beautiful crafted unconventional film that will take you to the different world.We agree with Kalki that years later, It will be remembered as a classic.Bombay Velvet is a must watch, a delight for every cinema lover.Don't miss this epic drama.
