Movie Review: Bombay Velvet: Needed more buzz

This movie is a little tough to describe in a single word. I have mixed feelings for the film. But if you ask me whether you should go for this one, I would say yes without expecting something huge like Barfi.

Good stuff

Acting : Ranbir and Anushka have acted very well in this movie. I am not very fond of Karan Johar’s acting skills though and feel actors like Kay Kay Menon, Adil Hussain or Rajat Kapoor could have done better in his place.

Detailed Retro Design: The movie depicts 60’s and the design and sets for the same is managed really well, you really start feeling you have gone back to the 60’s.

Not so Good Stuff

When I saw the trailer I really thought of this as brilliance, something that would redefine entertainment in Bollywood. But keeping those expectations as benchmarks I was a little disappointed. The film bodes of the same old plot which talks of a small guy who wants to be a Big Shot, gets too desperate and ultimately pays the price.

To me, I prefer watching movies like Mad Max then this (will watch it today though) but if you are a Bollywood fan, you might want to watch this.

Rating: 3/5
