I am just so glad that he has worked hard for BV and is getting praised.
I would love for the movie to work but that seems a hard task, but at least he scored and anushka too

He looked like he was forced to shoot at gun point LOL  Cos Ranbir is the kinda guy who can rise above a flawed script and/ a wooden co-star..Case in point is Rockstar LOL  So i was really surprised that he looked & acted like a zombie..Even in a film like Barfi where PC was bloody brilliant ( and IMO she had the more challenging role), i couldn't take my eyes off Ranbir..He is that good..Am just hoping i see that Ranbir in BV..I really want BV to do well but worst case scenario, if the film doesn't score, i really hope his performance is praised..The least we can expect LOL

I think Ranbir is also really influenced by his director. He has a personal connect with Imtiaz and Anurag pushed him a lot in this role (getting him drunk and all). He will deliver if his director cares. Like I thought he was awful in AA because clearly Sid Anand dgaf.

@ bold: Which is why it was disappointing to see him like a zombie in Roy..the story was twisted and complicated but at least on paper he has a workable character 

@red: fingers crossed

Which is quite surprising..Cos i always thought Ranbir is not the kinda guy who relies on his director..Meaning he can perform well either ways..Unlike say a Kareena who needs a good director to extract the best from her..Guess not..Besharam & Roy cleared my misconception LOL

P.S. More than anything, i still feel Ranbir does well if he relates to the character & is convinced by the script..

I remember him saying he sleepwalks through the role if he feels things are not going well. That's one thing he'd like to change about himself. Said it during Masand's roundtable with Aamir, Irfan and Nawaz in 2012. I was wondering which film he was talking about. Guess it was AA. Haven't seen it yet.Big smile

Acting being praised
Weren't Ranbir and Anushka's souls dead or something? Shocked

Bombay Velvet movie review: Relive the bygone 'Bombay' amid Ranbir-Anushka's enigmatic romance


IndiaTvNews

What is the story?

Street fighter Johnny Balraj (Ranbir Kapoor) dreams of becoming a big shot, to achieve this ambition Kaizaad Khambatta (Karan Johar) helps him. Rosie (Anushka Sharma) is a jazz singer who is wooed by Johnny. Soon Johnny realises that he is just a trump card for Khambatta, and other big entrepreneurs are using him for their big projects in the city. So what will Johnny do now? Watch Bombay Velvet to know it all.

What works for the movie?

Anurag Kashyap undoubtedly is one of the finest directors Bollywood has and the manner in which he shifts gears swiftly; no doubt he is conquering Indian cinema.

Through Bombay Velvet, he transports you to the bygone era of 1950's and 60's that is encapsulated with great finesse.

It's a gripping tale, courtesy to the detailing in costume, set design, makeup, the body language, the language and of course, the jazz. It's not just a love story neither is just about the lust for power and supremacy. It's about Mumbai, (then called Bombay) that saw itself transforming into a metropolitan marred by greedy collusion between governments and corporate.

Stars - Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar, Kay Kay Menon

Director- Anurag Kashyap

Music- Amit Trivedi

The greed here has overpowered the vision while people's needs are used as an excuse to grab land or to build structures. Kashyap, known for giving intricate details about whatever he gets his hand on once again excels in it.

Not for a second, you will realise that it's Sri Lanka where most of the film is outlined and shot. It's sheer art and is intoxicating.


What makes the lightings and the other settings more erotic is the chemistry between Ranbir and Anushka.

The couple comes as a breath of fresh air in the flick. Their love is passionate while their hatred too intense.

Ranbir Kapoor shows traits of his great grand father Raj Kapoor, but that is just for them who wants to make any resemblance out of him. Ranbir is just himself. He accelerates the character of Balraj with his extraordinary act that would be cherished by the audience for sure.

Anushka Sharma as a jazz singer is lovable. She is every man's dream lady and she indeed manages to prove that beautifully.

The surprise package of the star cast of Bombay Velvet is Karan Johar. As Khambatha, Johar makes an extraordinary acting debut. More than his dialogues, it's his expression that leaves us awe-struck.

Satyadeep Mishra as Balraj's friend too leaves a mark.

What spoils the mood?

It's sad that the entire aura of classified sets and brilliant performances are brought down by its weak narration, while the screenplay and dialogues are too cliche. Anurag in his Gang of Wasseypur narrated the story that travelled post India's Independence to the current timeline without creating any stereotypes in the movie. Here, his characters and even sequences are more inspired from the 70's film arena. Also there are many loose threads, which remain untied till the end.

Final Verdict-

Depsite these few flaws, Bombay Velvet can be watched for Ranbir-Anushka's sizzling chemistry amidst drastically transforming Bombay into Mumbai. Also be ready for Karan Johar's surprise act.
