Bombay Velvet | Has It Aged Well?
Manage episode 348946506 series 1344955
Dust up your fedoras, hop on a tram to visit your favourite jazz club where the gangster's moll is crooning a sultry number because we're going back to the Bombay of the 60's baby!
Well, not quite. We're going back to 2015 to discuss Anurag Kashyap's deeply polarising work ‘Bombay Velvet’. Joining Abbas and Urjita on this venture is film critic extraordinaire Sucharita Tyagi.
Is BV a misunderstood masterpiece? What makes it stand apart from other Kashyap fare? Why did this film disappoint fanboys? Why does Abbas want to keep recasting the film? Are the music and lyrics the soul of the film? And should it have been a prestige streaming miniseries rather than a film? Tune in to find out the answers to all this and more on ‘Has It Aged Well?’.
