Overall too Good.
3 May 2013 | by ekanshmishra1210See all my reviews

Indian cinema completed it's 100 years so on the same day when Raja Harishchandra was released in Mumbai, we have Bomaby Talkies by four Great director of our film Industry.

Four stories by four for famous director... Movie started with emotions of a guy who refuse to stay with his family because of his orientation. Finally goes on.. Karan has done really a good job. Second from Dibakar Banerjee is a story of a Lower middle class man dreaming big.. After from Joya is a story of a small child who wants to become a Dancer but his father don't want to see him as a dancer as every common parents expect his son to be a pilot or something. Last was from Anurag Kashyap is story of a man from Allahbad wants to meet Amitabh because of his Dad's will.

If you like Drama movies then you are not gonna miss this. Some will say that First is best, some will go with second and some with third and last one. But Frankly All stories were fabulous it depends on person's choice which story he/she like the most. For me till now I haven't decided which part was best. I enjoyed the whole movie and found every story fantastic.

At the end a song was there which covered 100 years of Hindi Cinema. Song was too good, it is so difficult to cover a long story of Indian cinema in five minutes but they have done tremendous work. Song was in last just after "The End" but Don't miss that. At last but not least....

"Har dil ki dhadkan hai apna 'BOMBAY TALKIES' ".
