BOMBAY VELVET brings 1960s era back in fashion
A stylish retro look, the grey world of smuggling and some jazz amid the old world charm of Bombay of the 1960s - that's the world of Ranbir Kapoor-starrer 'Bombay Velvet', as seen via its trailer released last week. Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the movie is set in the 1960s and is a large screen adaptation of Gyan Prakash's 'Mumbai Fables'.
The story is about a man with big dreams and the extent he is willing to go to be successful. In the trailer, Ranbir is introduced as a street-fighter named Johnny Balraj with a curly mop of hair, embroiled in a cage-fight in soiled clothes with hands wrapped in bandages. On the other hand, Anushka Sharma, his love interest in the film, is Rosie, the star singer of a nightclub. The duo will be seen opposite each other for the first time and it seems their sizzling chemistry won't disappoint cinema-goers. There are lip locks galore! The surprise package of the film's trailer is filmmaker Karan Johar, who will be seen in as Kaizad Khambatta, a negative character. His villainous look with a shrewd smile and a moustache leaves a lasting impression. The film is set for release on May 15.
