Trivia

Director Anurag Kashyap was not sure if Ranbir Kapoor would take this film since Anurag's brother Abhinav Kashyap's movie Besharam with Ranbir Kapoor as main lead was flop and Ranbir was very much criticized for his role as main actor. But Ranbir insisted Anurag for the lead role in Bombay Velvet. See more »

Bombay Velvet is a Great Movie
18 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although Bombay Velvet has not been doing well, it is a movie that you must watch. The story is very interesting; you keep anticipating what will happen next. The movie is made extremely well; the characters are believable, and the sets make you feel you are in the '60s. The storyline is a bit slow in the first half, but the second half picks up speed. The love story between Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor is one of my favorite elements of the story. I was a little hesistant to watch this movie based on the reviews, but I do not regret watching it at all. This movie makes up for Ranbir Kapoor's last two flop movies, Besharam and Roy. Overall, this movie is a must watch and you will regret it if you do not watch it.
