Bombay Velvet Movie Review: Ranbir, Anushka give #BombayVelvet all they've got

Saibal Chatterjee   | Friday, May 15, 2015

Ranbir Kapoor gives the pivotal role all he has. He does have a great deal, and is able to invest Johnny Balraj with the moral ambiguities that come with the territory he inhabits.

Anushka, the femme fatale who ends up playing into the hands of the men she ensnares, serves as the ideal foil. 

But of Karan Johar as the master manipulator who gives the protagonist a hard time, the less said the better. Acting isn't his kettle of fish. 

One final act in the film by an under-utilised Kay Kay Menon, playing a crime branch detective on the trail of Johnny Balraj, sums up his and the audience's frustration. He flings his hat into the ground.

What keeps things on track, albeit with some major maneuvering, are the performances. First and foremost, Karan Johar is the surprise package of this film. The man belongs in front of the camera. In a classic lovers versus gangsters set up, he brings a stylish and suave sense of freshness to the bad guy. His performance makes the villain funny, novel and entertaining. Manish Chaudhary as Jimmy Mistry, an ego-driven megalomaniac is suitably intense. Satyadeep Misra, puts in a decent effort as Chimman, Balraj's best friend. But the film belongs to Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. Ranbir needn't prove how good an actor he is, his career is already a shining example of the same. Yet, he brings his top game to a wonderfully eccentric character. It's the kind of role they used to write for the likes of Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro. And Ranbir looks effortlessly comfy in the skin of his character. Anushka has just picked up the intensity where she left it in NH10. This actress is truly on top. Her efforts make you believe in the love story and that edgy but fun chemistry between the leads. The highlight though, is her performance on stage singing those love jazz inspired songs. One word - brilliant!

How r hell r we supposed to take any of these reviews as the truth! These 2 refute each other where Karan is concerned and refutes the Raja Sen one completely where RK & AS r concerned..

Basically the only unanimous verdict is Anurag fell short of expectation.
90% - positive for RK & Anu
50-50 - for KJo

*head desk* LOL

I think that Anurag fell into the same trap Dibakar did. Tried too hard to make it "simple" and commercial because people kept telling him their films weren't accessible enough. BW is dumb, the audience isn't. If he had made a Gangs with this cast, it would have been a huge hit. Stars should be used to generate visibility, not as a reason to dumb down the narrative. 

It's ironic that after complaining that other directors take the audience for fools. Anurag did the same thing himself.

Ranbir apparently threw a party to celebrate the reviews so at least he is happy.

I can't entirely blame Anurag, I have a feeling the reports about him being forced to change elements of the film because it wasn't commercial enough were true. Maybe Rishi Kapoor did interfere, as did Fox.

Also, W*F?! What happened on that film set?

Quite possible the blinds were all true

Anuraag left India for a bit sometime last year too right?
