A comedy caper about 7 scoundrels pursuing their ulterior motive amid saving their skin from the local cop's hawk eyes.

Bombay Velvet, Hindi movie review
A period drama of the 60s, a visual treat of Bombay of that era, Bombay Velvet is created with artistic grandeur, has been let down by a confusing plot. Anurag Kashyap has to be applauded for lavishly recreating Bombay of the 60s. This is where it ends as the film has neither the entertainment factor or the chilly seriousness of a mafia ruling the politics and maneuvering the city plans for its benefits. Anushka Sharma is the cute fashionable jazz singer Rosie who sparkles in embellished body-fitting gowns. Bombay Velvet revolves around the story of how Bombay transformed its landscape during the 60s and 70s and the corrupt administration, which is hand in glove with the mill owners and the rich. This apart, the story is woven around the backdrop of Ranbir-Anushka romance. Ranbir Kapoor's character is used by people around him, including his mother. A small time hood, with a ....

Raja Natwarlal Movie Review
Emraan Hashmi is back in a character as a street smart conman which he played in Jannat and Jannat 2. His recent ones Ghanchakkar and Ek Thi Daayan were a complete departure from the commercial Emraan Hashmi films. They were for the niche audience. Raja (Emraan Hashmi) makes money tricking people in the Three Card Monte. He is aided by his friend Raghav (Deepak Tijori), who solicits 'targets' and induces them to bet bigger. Part of the money is used for helping kids to pay their school fees. Balance of the amount is 'blown' up on Ziya (Humaima Malick) in a dance bar. Raghav has brought him up in life and treated Raja like his younger brother. Raja's greed to make a quick buck lands him in a mess while trying their hand in a 'bada daav' (big game). Despite, Raghav's caution and warning that big money means big risk, Raja insists that they go ahead and rob a target of Rs 80 lakhs in a '4 ....
