Critic Reviews for Bombay Velvet
[Bombay Velvet] is lengthy, violent and emotionally shallow but brilliantly stylish bolly-noir.
It's the high-gloss realization of that world that affords many of the pic's most delicious pleasures.
Too melodramatic to be a j'accuse about the dodgy origins of modern-day Indian prosperity, too explicitly preachy to be a gangster-and-moll romance and too stylistically incoherent to be a piece of guilty-pleasure entertainment.
For much of its first half, Bombay Velvet hums with the kind of energy found in movies by the 1970s American directors Mr. Kashyap seems to admire. (Martin Scorsese is thanked in the head credits.)
Where Bombay Velvet comes up short for me, and this is a big one in my book, is that it feels clinical and rigid, where Kashyap's films are usually so well paced and fluid.
