wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Four short films. All work wonderfully at some level and don't work as well at other levels. Bombay Talkies worth a watch nevertheless.

Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar - these two names in one film. Who would've thought of that? Bombay Talkies deserves extra points for this creativity alone. Add the other names Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee and you have all my attention.

This trailer exudes calmness in the mayhem and aspirations associated with Mumbai. The names in cast range from Rani Mukerjee, Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor to Nawazuddin Siddiqui. This wide spectrum piques curiosity.

To top it off, the film promises to be an ode to cinema. This theme makes the film very personal for everyone involved and gives it that extra edge. The circle is then complete with music from Amit Trivedi.

Most certainly, exciting times ahead!

Music Reviews:
dunkdaft - "The expectations go huge. And definitely, Amit Trivedi's score, in that way, falls short to satisfy to meet them. Still, with 4 wonderful tracks out of 6, Bombay Talkies is a Good album"
koimoi - "3/5"
Milliblog - "Curious little side-project from Amit Trivedi."
Music Aloud - "7/10"
glamsham - "3.5/5"
