  • [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.

    Guy Lodge

    Variety
    Top Critic
  • 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.

    April 19, 2016 | Full Review…
  • 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.)

    May 21, 2015 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The factors that work in favour of Bombay Velvet outnumber those that do not. For one, Kashyap elicits fairly restrained performances from most of the cast.
