Bombay Velvet Review

  • 2/5

There's a reason this film bombed. The pacing -- and the background score, just seemed off to me. The editing of this film is too slow paced mostly, and excessive slow-mo for gun battles rather than giving a breathless fast pace after the quiet.

Ranbir just isn't compelling enough. He's a dumb lug, and then he's brilliant enough to fake a death on the spur of the moment? Karan is mostly okay, but not menacing enough when he needed to be.

Costumes and sets are gorgeous, but the music numbers are COMPLETELY STATIC. Watching a torch song singer stand and belt it out is well and good, but every song was like that. Bombay Velvet's a club, there could have been dancing!! Johnny could have taken her out on the dance floor for cripes sake!
