Bombay Velvet


Dir. Anurag Kashyap. 2015. 149 min. DCP. In Hindi with English subtitles. With Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar. Starring Ranbir Kapoor, grandson of Hindi screen legend Raj Kapoor, and co-edited by Thelma Schoonmaker, who has won three Academy Awards for her work with Martin Scorsese, Bombay Velvet is a brilliant ode to American gangster films in the form of Bollywood spectacle. Steeped in the glamour and dangers of 1960s Bombay nightlife, the story follows Johnny Balraj, a small-time boxer-turned-club owner as he becomes drawn into an underworld of organized crime and its deceptions while trying to win the heart of jazz singer Rosie.
