Critics Review


Ambitious but flawed

Bombay Velvet never looked exciting from day one. However one kept misgivings away owing to Anurag Kahsyap�s track record. He is ambitious here, like he always has, is meticulous and severely careful in recreating an era. Sadly, he seems to have taken up more than he can chew. Working with stars, a ...(more)

Bombay Velvet has neither the softness of velvet nor the sweep of the city it is an ode to.

The most striking aspects of Bombay Velvet are its evocative visual texture and its lush and layered sound design. But these, unfortunately, can only be external accoutrements for an ambitious film that clearly aspires to be infinitely more than the sum of its superficial parts. Meticulous is ind...(more)

Bombay Velvet is an epic misfire

An emotionally overwrought aria -- complete with black tears brimming down kohl�d cold eyes -- the song transcends the film and strikes operatically at the heart. Both movie and audience hold their collective breath, and despite the tedium that follows this track, this cinematic sucker-punch is enou...(more)

BOMBAY VELVET is a visual masterpiece that is rich in form.

BOMBAY VELVET is bound to change the way you look at him. He is bound to stun everyone with his acting debut.

He is outstanding in a scene where he goes out of the room to laugh un...(more)

Ranbir-Anushka sizzle, but where's the intensity?

Detailing is Bombay Velvet�s real deal and that makes it a watchable movie. Also, don�t expect it to be another film on the line of Gangs Of Wasseypur 1 and 2. This time, it�s more about the masses.(more)

Bombay Velvet is a visually enjoyable period drama.

Anurag Kashyap is a true storyteller and this time he shows us a Gangs Of Wasseypur which is jazzed up with clubs, cigars, vintage cars and Tommy guns. Kashyap is successful in drawing us into this warped love story in the first half but loses his grip in the second. He tries to put too many charact...(more)

Grandeur, romance and all that Jazz

Bombay Velvet doesn't match up to the expectations one had from it. Despite all the grandiosity, one needs to be well-equipped in patience in order to savour the film. The external embellishments render the film quite heavy. It teeters on the edge, but ultimately manages to sail through. Bombay Velv...(more)
