Mine have come down very fast. The only great thing is that it resrmbles the hollywood gangster movies. I love that style of filmmaking.


The story however looks extremly fickle. Cant believe there isnt more to it than what the reviews are saying. The trailers potrayed a much much bigger canvas.

Nope. There is unanimous praise for 4 things: visuals & scale, performances, love story and music. Throughout the promotions, they let out enough information that the story was totally decipherable and a few people also figured it out in the other thread. I don't think critics will be all too pleased with it because it's not 'complex' enough (like mentioned in one of the reviews) or a thriller...but I think BV, as all period film are, is more about the execution than a unique plot anyways. And going by the feeling from the reviews so far, I think the target will be the romantics...general public will come out talking about the Rosie-Johnny love story and Ranbir's acting more than anything else (i.e. the story) in the film. As for me, I'm going to see something in theatres after a long time for the visuals and music...I wouldn't have if not for the fact that they are integral to the experience of the movie. And so long as those are on point, along with all the performances from the cast and the love story is good...it'll be worth the experience, IMO.


Have you seen DBB?? The visuals were stunning and the direction, amazing. I have never seen such attention being paid to details ever in a BW movie (It set the benchmark and I doubt BV will be able to top that). The performances were top notch as was the story.

The only places it suffered was that it was too slow at times and the climax was a let-down.(Not for me but talking generally) Otherwise the Calcutta they visioned the way the story unfolds was a sight to behold.

Same looks true for BV. There is little story and the pace is slow going by the reviews. And that is a bad thing especially if you are making it for BV audiences at a budget of 100 crores.

I expected more like; a bit of history to how that time was, the conflicts, some commentary on the gang warfare, politics and the like. Seems like we are not getting it. I know that the love story was the focal point and they made it clear. But these things must have been going on in the back-drop to make it the classic that it could have been. Just my two cents.

The final picture will be revealed after Friday though.

Karan getting praised to the skies.LOL

He is going to be terrible and I am basing this on the trailers. Did you see his dialogue delivery and the his body language?? I was laughing the whole time.

Ranbir has gotten over the problems he had in the trailers, it seems. I am glad for that. Barfi was ages ago and a solid Ranbir Kapoor performance is the need of the hour.

Anushka, well I have been saying it from the start. It is going to her movie, through and through.

Actually, going by the reviews there seems to be detailing about land reclamation, Blitz-Torrent rivalry, communist-capitalist conflict etc. Dunno if its a good thing or not as those things can slow down the movie. We'll know soon.
