But I do have an irritation for hypocrites who pretend to be Ranbir's fan (though no one believes) has only bad things to say about him, diss him at any given opportunity, likes posts and tgreads bashing him and yet when called out acts as a victim and starts whining, gets personal and reports for silliest of comments ...jo bolna hai danke ki chot pe bolo, don't be a coward. 

I agree. So by that logic, other Ranbir stans need to stop whining about some Deepika and Salman fans because they genuinely dislike Ranbir and have always said so lol.
LOL Blame should be placed where it belongs IMO.

What does she mean by a flawed review? Its the reviewer's opinion at the end of the day..How can it be flawed? Or does she mean grammatical errors & typos? LOL

Review: Bombay Velvet' Is a Bollywood Ode to American Gangster Movies

By RACHEL SALTZMAY 15, 2015

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 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.
