  • 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.

  • Bombay Talkies fills you with hope. If Bollywood can make a film like this, then it must be doing something right.

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

  • It is genuinely not possible for me to pick a favorite or rank them in any order as tempting an idea it might sound. Each film has something to say, and their authors get it across effectively and without fuss.
