Its a bad film..Period LOL  The film seems to be attracting diverse views so am not really sure if others liked it better but despite being a fan of Ranbir, i found it very sub-par..I loved RK's performance & since am a fan, i sat through it..My friend is neutral & she begged me 3 or 4 times if we could walk out midway & do something more useful OuchLOL

the songs aren't entertaining on screen?

I am agree Deepika's stardom is better than Ranbir at this moment because I can see how Piku got extraordinary acclaim even without good song & popular young actor.

But, storyline, scripting and editing also give big impact. All Khan movie loved by everyone because of good storyline and good editing even bad scripting. And that all because khans also "director & producer" in all their movie. I don't think anyone want to watch a movie which storyline jump there and here without any clue. I think BV became bad movie because of bad storyline & bad editing.

This is the guy who was gonna take over the Khans?Stern SmileThis is sooo embarrassing for such a big film. Let's take him off that pedestal now shall we?

we get it you love Deepika, alot of us do too, but theres no point dissing Ranbir coz your idol loves him too(enough to walk around with RK tattoo for last how many years). Everyone knows this movie has been a labour of love, it's not jus a south remake rip off, people have actually put so much handwork into celebrating it's failure jus reflects badly on you...DP is on top now but tables can turn anytime...If ranbir kapoor can fall then so can DP..nothing is permanent in BW. Ranbir will bounce back...

another thing...Ranbir cheated on DP, not on why do u take it personally n hate him?LOL

Um did you realize that I am talking about films and not personal life?LOLI don't like Ranbir offscreen but I've always praised his acting when I felt he was good. I get it your upset with this debacle but no need to give me as essay on something I didn't even write aboutLOL

Lol why wud I be upset? I don't worship a single actor like you do. When u criticize a film giving proper reasons after watching the movie that's more than fair but celebrating someone's failure jus for the sake of it is another thing.

koi sharam nahi kehne meh...kull milla karr only 7 ppl in the theater. i went to noon showing...yes FDFS.Big smile

no need for a  lengthy review...there are many floating around already. 

just  a shout out to all ranbir watch this on big screen for the ACTOR called ranbir kapoor. 

RANBIR KAPOOR. crippled with a shallow narrative..he towers all. his walk, his talk, his eyes, his hair, his tears, his action, his clothes, his smoking, his firing ...TOP!!! and yes in an epic disaster movie. so be it.

actually..i think he did better here than his much talked about another floppy movie rockstar. he completely owns this movie for the scene/song dhadaam dhadaam... a sheer magic he is  get ur tissue ready. that performance alone will be paisaa vasool for you ranbir fans. 

what baffles me after watching the movie...the editing of the movie was done by ace editor Thelma schoon...oh well maybe she forgot to sharpen her scissors for kashyap.

3 stars it goes straight to RANBIR KAPOOR.

Review: Bombay Velvet' Is a Bollywood Ode to

American Gangster Movies


In the period world of "Bombay Velvet," Ranbir Kapoor " with his pencil mustache, crop of flyaway hair and broad-shouldered jacket " looks more than a bit like his grandfather Raj Kapoor. And he has some of his raffish, leading-man charm.

Like the elder Kapoor in such films as "Awaara" and "Shree 420," Ranbir plays an underdog battling the system. He's Johnny Balraj, a petty gangster who doesn't mind taking a pounding or doling one out. Johnny runs a nightclub and longs for a piece of the real-estate pie that is Bombay in 1969, a city on the cusp of (over)development.

The director Anurag Kashyap's cinematic touchstones don't end with Raj Kapoor. He also has a thing for American gangster movies. There are echoes here of "The Godfather" and "Scarface" (Brian De Palma's). James Cagney shows up, too; Johnny watches "The Roaring Twenties," with Cagney dying on snowy steps as a blonde intones, "He used to be a big shot."

Which is to say that "Bombay Velvet" (great title) is more about movies than it is about gangsters. Mr. Kashyap's restless camera likes the look of rain on windshields and tommy guns, Art Deco nightclubs and girl singers with beehive 'dos.

If Mr. Kashyap's previous films, like "Ugly" and "That Girl in Yellow Boots," have had an indie, sometimes arty sensibility, here, and in the ambitious "Gangs of Wasseypur," he paints on a bigger canvas, or perhaps a bigger screen, wedding Page 1 of 2

Review: Bombay Velvet' Is a Bollywood Ode to American Gangster Movies - 5/15/15, 7:12 PM

indie impulses and Bollywood storytelling. For much of its first half, "Bombay Velvet" hums with the kind of energy found in movies by the 1970s American directors Mr. Kashyap seems to admire. (Martin Scorsese is thanked in the head credits.)

Mr. Kashyap is perhaps too faithful to his Bollywood imperatives, though. In the grand tradition, his film is overlong (149 minutes) and overplotted. (It's hard to keep track of all the dirty deals and dirty dealers carving up Bombay.) And just when you expect it to explode some of the clichs it reinvigorates, it embraces them instead.

Still, as one fast operator tells our hero, "The map of Bombay is being redrawn, Johnny." Even with its faults, Mr. Kashyap's film is more evidence that the map of Bollywood is, too.
