Critic Reviews for Bombay Talkies

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Less a nod to the past than a wave to a quartet of young helmers, these diverse shorts would work better as stand-alones, since grouping them together detracts from their individual merits and makes them feel even slighter than warranted.

They are of varying interest, but the overall impression they leave is watching a Bollywood sampler without the song and dance, a committee project with an impressive budget but little heart.

Bombay Talkies is a unique experiment that works very well. The collaboration between four leading directors suggests a confidence that was rare in the industry even a decade ago. I believe that things can only get better from here on.

BT's a good experiment, celebrating movies, mindsets and Mumbai's moods.

A consistent charmer, the Indian omnibus Bombay Talkies is vibrant and colourful, that rare portmanteau film where the whole is more than the sum of its likeable parts.

A fitting tribute.
