What I felt after watching Bombay Velvet?
I am a big fan of Anurag Kashyap and I was expecting something different like he always shows in his films, but Bombay velvet is like the old recipe with new spices. Bombay Velvet is a visual treat with some good acting performances, but the style of Anurag Kashyap was missing. I was expecting some realistic cinema. He tried to show how Bombay was created by big businessman and politicians, but that was a small part of the film. Bombay Velvet is all about the life of Johnny Balraj.
The story of Bombay velvet is like just another story of 70’s film. The film looks good with great cinematography and you can see the hard work of the Bombay Velvet team in recreating the Bombay of 70’s.
If you are a fan of Anurag Kashyap then you may feel disappointed. We all expect some real cinema and real dialogues from Anurag Kashyap’s film and this film is just a commercial film.

Johnny Balraj never trusts anybody and Bombay Velvet is all about love, betrayal and greed for money.
