Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobara (U/A)
Length: - 2hrs. 40 min.
OUATIMD fails from the inception; the mafia environment which is being created doesn’t look real. The ingredients which made the prequel a big success was the awesome creation of complete setup of 70’s, simply superb performance by Ajay Devgan as Sultan Mirza, the cheesy lines and the list goes on. But in the OUATIMD there is enough masala to make the dish spicy. Chocolaty heroes like Imran Khan don’t suit in the role of Don while Akshay Kumar’s get up is cool but I personally feel that character is not memorable like the Sultan Mirza of OUATIM. Another good thing about the first installment was it left a long lasting impression but is boring drama that you don’t even feel like watching once.
Shoaib (Akshay Kumar) trusts two boys to work for him; one of them being Aslam (Imran Khan) the film jumps quickly to 12 years later where these two boys has got younger. Shoaib comes to Mumbai in order to kill one of his biggest enemies and falls in love with a girl named Jasmine (Sonakshi Sinha). Both Shoaib & Aslam falls in love for the same for the same girl but the girl doesn’t love any of them.
There is a comeback of old actress Sonali Bendre as Shoaib’s old love interest and she is good in her performance. Sonakshi’s character is kind hearted intelligent and dump at the same time. Films weak plot stretches like a bubblegum, just to know who will get the girl. In the last 30 minutes films has a small twist which makes you feel that the film gets better but it’s a short part and doesn’t last long. After few minutes of the starting itself films quickly loses the track and it goes nowhere.
Milan Luthria who made two success good films like The Dirty Picture and Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, both of them were good adaptations of a person’s life. In the current film it seems that he doesn’t have a reference to proceed.
Verdict: - Disappointment after a nice prequel like OUATIM
Ratings:- 1.5 / 5 Stars
