Bombay Rose Review
Baradwaj Rangan gave a positive review and said, “Bombay Rose subverts not just Bombay cinema’s storytelling, but also the implicit assumptions of Bombay cinema.”
Guy Lodge of Variety said that Rao’s “exquisitely realized debut feature offers folk-influenced visual splendor to compensate for some jumbled storytelling.”
Xan Brooks from The Guardian wrote: “Bombay Rose’s high-stakes melodrama might be ripped from the real world, but it has been powdered and perfumed – crammed full of archetypes and over-egged emotions, liberally sprinkled with musical interludes.
