No sorry Scott, Fuji Velvia like all colour reversal films because they are posatives and aren't subject to the negative /positive process, and if you down rate the ISO film speed the resultant transparency will be less saturated not more as in negative films, i.e. if you wanted more saturation with Kodachrome 64 you shot it at ISO 80 for more saturation not ISO 50.
I shoot a lot of Velvia and I find it plenty saturated at the boxed speed, and should think that in the lighting in Southern India Velvia should knock the viewers eyes out.
The more exposure you give to slide films the lighter the resultant transparency is., that's why they are called " reversal films"
