Inspite of good performances Bombay Velvet flopped.
Ranbir Kapoor’s Bombay Velvet stands out as the most stylish film of 2015.
Anurag Basu the director recreated Mumbai of the 1950s. Vikas Bahl and Vikramaditya Motwane produced the film. Music was composed by Amit Trivedi.
The film was shot partly in Mumbai and partly in Sri Lanka.
Ranbir Kapoor played the character of Johnny Balraj a street fighter of the 1950s. He was ambitious and was in affair with Anushka Sharma playing the role of a jazz singer Rosy Noronha.
It was shown that Anushka Sharma’s parents sold her to Portuguese singer
Fernandez at an early age. He used to beat her up and abuse her. One day she assaulted him and escaped from Goa to Mumbai. She sang jazz songs in the Hotel Bombay Velvet in the Geeta Dutt style.

Ranbir Kapoor went into deal with Karan Johar to be the owner of Bombay Velvet. Whoever came in the way of prosperity Ranbir killed one after the other. There were a lot of character who were powermongering and wanted control including Manish Choudhury playing the role of newspaper editor Jimmy Mistry, Siddharth Basu playing the role of Mayor of Mumbai. They used Ranbir Kapoor in all the evil acts including kidnapping comrade leader in land acquisition case.

Karan Johar made Ranbir Kapoor fight against the street fighter. He fired at Anushka. She survived. Ranbir killed Karan Johar.

Anurag Kashyap recreated Mumbai of 1950s. It was very stylish andaz. Ranbir Kapoor acted very well and showed glimpses of Raj Kapoor. Anushka Sharma did well. Karan Johar amazed everyone with his acting skills. The music of Amit Trivedi mesmerized the audience.
