Instant Movie Review #23 (Bombay Velvet)

Anurag Kashyap's - "Bombay Velvet"

Positives
1) Performances
2) Production work and Set design
3) Music

Negatives
1) Screenplay and Direction
2) Characters

Introduction: Amid of enormous expectations, Bombay Velvet is purposed to be a blockbuster movie and with all the right elements it converted into a complete bummer. 

Plot: Established by a non-exclusive storyline, which concentrates on the main characters -- Johnny Balraj and Rosie and their adversity in life, the futile screenplay was the most sluggish feature in the movie as it felt tedious to watch.

Analysis: But on a positive note, the production work and the set design in the movie was marvelous and is presented gorgeously on-screen.

Performances: Despite their weak characters, performances from Ranbir, Anushka, and Karan Johar were splendid, but their honest efforts didn't feel adequate for a substandard movie.

Verdict: Nevertheless, Bombay Velvet is a missed opportunity on every standpoint that completely deserves its failure both critically and commercially. Feel happy to skip it!

My Rating - 2/5 | Grade - C (Meh! Probably a rental)
