STORY: Set in 1960s Bombay, the film tells the story of a small time con-man with an ambition to become a big-shot, Johnny Balraj (Ranbir Kapoor), and an aspiring jazz singer, Rosie (Anushka Sharma), and how their hopes and dreams collide with their individual realities.

This movie is a good one if you are watching it with no disturbance around you, because you need to be focussing on every single line they are saying or else you will end up having no knowledge about what is happening the whole time. This movie is based on Ranbir's character who reaches Bombay (Mumbai) via Punjab Express with one companion, at the seaport he gets to meet Chimman who is a man who is a pocket picker and belongs to the Pakistan part of India. The movie does not tells the early life of these two kids and gives a direct look at future. Johnny meets Kaizad Khambata (Karan Johar) when he tries to rob him when he leaves the bank, this scene is quite funny and worth the time. Kaizad makes up a plan and takes pictures of an individual and uses it to get his deeds done. Kaizad lets Johnny be the verbal owner of Bombay Velvet. From here the story is boring so move to later part. The fight scene where Johnny has betrayed Kaizad and then goes rogue, in this instance Johnny's childhood buddy helps Johnny when Kaizad orders to open fire on Johnny's office in this scene Johnny's friend passes away. They imitate to kill Rosie (Anushka) and introduces her later as a younger sis of Rosie. Then the same BollyWood drama. In the ending scenes, Johnny is with Rosie and they have a little quarrel and Rosie leaves the hotel and goes out where she meets the Detective who takes her for enquiry where a Police Head comes and takes Rosie with him and delivers her to Kaizad. From here, a number of Fights and Johnny comes face to face with Kaizad where he finds a street fighter with whom Johnny had many fights and they fight again. Johnny kills the fighter and Kaizad in this scene but before killing them, Kaizad had already shot Rosie and she is about to die, Johnny takes her out and rushes to the hospital but the police force stops them and the Police Head kills Johnny and Rosie dies because of the gunshot.
