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.
