Analysis:- Ranbir has done very good role. He proved that he has good acting silks. Anushka Sharma should be applauded for reinventing at this point of career with such a look and unwavering intensity. But Karan Johar fails to impress an actor as he falters to bring menance and he looks like more of an actor trying too hard. Supporting cast is exemplary with Manish Chaudhari, Satyadeep Mishra, Kay Kay Menon all in top form.
Film slows down at places and songs make it even worse with worst music from Amit Trivedi. Film has very good set design. Camerawork is average.
Director Anurag Kashyap has habit of garnering media attention for all wrong reasons. He keeps blaming media to audience for misunderstanding him. But this time he had budget, good actors, big banner and his dream story but he presents such a boring and mediocre film that its tough to digest even for his ardent fans. He once again proves that making a small film is one thing and handling a big budget film is another.
Bombay Velvet has no change to grow on Box Office and the reason for this is Piku and Gabbar Is Back.
One Word About the Film: There is no reason to watch this movie.
