    I am a huge fan of the first movie, which I've seen more than 10 times, and I obviously loved it. It's a shame though that I can't say the same for it's sequel, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara. The movie's script feels like an afterthought, like they first decided to cast Akshay Kumar in the role of Shoaib, then thought, okay now what should we do with the character? Even the director and his team knew that the story is extremely flimsy, so they decided to put in as many one liners & punch-packing dialogs as possible. And it would have been better if these dialogs had been any good. They're unintentionally hilarious. I'll talk about that in a while. Everyone in the movie talks like they are at a "mushaira" for dons. They all speak in punchlines, especially Akshay Kumar, who seems to be hamming it up here. And above everything else, they gave so many one liners & punchlines to Imraan Khan, who can't say them right even to save his life, it just makes the matters worse. Talking about Imraan Khan, he does not do the movie any good, he doesn't look the part, doesn't act the part and whatever lines are given to him, he just makes the mess of them. And it's not like that the dialogs are worth remembering, they range from passable to downright hilarious, and not hilarious in an obvious way, but in a way that the film makers had never intended. Take this for an example, Imraan's character actually says this in the movie, (Translating in English because of the site's rules). Love is like a maid, it comes every day, does it's work and then goes away. And it's said in the movie in all seriousness. Unintentional laughter is in abundance here. Akshay overacts, he's always wearing shades & smoking big cigars, &when it comes to dialogs, he just messes it up by trying to act super cool. Imraan, just as always, is pathetic, this guy can't act to save his own life. One of the worst actors of his generation. He doesn't even look like a don in the movie, he looks like a high-society kid trying to mimic a don for a private spoof video. The less said about Sonakshi Sinha, the better. Moving on... The only good things in the movie are some of the action sequences and the small yet powerful turn by Sonali Bendre. She plays her part perfectly, and it was amazing seeing her on the big screen after such a long time. She looks beautiful. I'm going with 3 out of 10 for the movie, an utter & colossal disappointment. I kept waiting for the movie to get better, but it didn't Note to film makers, write a script before you hire someone for the role. Watching this film is like having a prostate exam, you know why you're there, but you don't know why you're really there.

  • Spoiler Alert-Intolerable

    With no storyline, no script, bad acting and boring dialogue the movie was doomed to bomb at the box office ab initio. The movie could still have managed to evade this ignominy , had it featured good music. It didn't . The music is bad. It drives you crazy and out of the theatre. The movie , is irritating and comes across as a 80's B-Grade gone real bad . While Gangster movies are past their prime , this one touches new lows. The first few minutes of the movie act as a fitting prologue and only the very brave can venture beyond it. Akshay Kumar's performance is ignorable , stale and dull. Imran Khan is Naturally Unintelligent . Sonakshi misfits in beautifully . There are cheap and childish jokes. Brow beaten and drab one liners. Clichéd depictions of filmy virtues like "Dosti" "Imaandaari" "Namak Ka Farz" etc . There are surreal scenes as well , where, oblivious to the waste disposal systems of the Lavatories on Indian Trains, the characters lie beneath the tracks in search of philosophically charged revelations about life. Please don't waste your time on this one. You won't survive the ordeal .

    This time story is partially based on real incidents so too much liberty has been taken to narrate it, movie starts with crime and then gradually takes turn of a typical love triangle movie. Love is not very much established. Few dialogues are good but after a good dialogue you have to bear lots of forced and unnecessarily rhymed dialogues, which left bitter taste eventually. In its first part of series, dialogues were the one of the strongest point of film but in this one, dialogues, screenplay and story all loose the balance. Sometimes over the note sometimes under. There is a good comedy scene between Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, about funny translation of Hindi lines and one misinterpreted word is very catchy but they repeat it so many times that it starts irritating you rather than tickle. Performance wise Akshay Kumar is good. Imran Khan is stiff. Sonakshi Sinha is cute but goes over board in intense emotional scene, especially in climax one. Pitobash, who played the character of Dedh Tang, is impressive. Music of first part of this film was amazing but in this one, it is just okay.

  • totally value for money movie............enjoyable

    ..movie is really good awesome dialog actor....great acting...nice story good creation of 7o's Mumbai...music is also good...must watch movie looking so classy... khan does his job really good........this film is different from its first part. .... story - One deadly don. One young protégé. Both in love with the same starlet. Who wins the girl in this felonious feat? Once Upon a Time... Bollywood movies were enamored by dreaded D's of the underworld. They still are. Whether the story is told in retro-rap, or with stylish designer double Dons, or with gloss-free rawness of realism. This endless 'lawless' love affair continues. In , a love triangle forms the bloodline of the story, replete with , molls with and an overkill of 'loaded' dialogs dialogs.

  • OUATIMD rides on its dialogues and Akshay Kumar....!!!

    akkighost9 2013-08-15

    Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobara starts with it's superb dialogues and that is the USP of the movie. Through out the movie loads of dialogues will be fired towards you but the good thing is you will enjoy all the dialogues.It's not a complete gangster flick like the previous movie.As shown in the trailer it has its romantic moments & the movie drags sometimes in between those moments. But again the dialogues will keep u occupied. In terms of story line the movie is just fine and could have been better. But it's the performance of the lead actors that will force to overlook the average script. The Retro look of the movie is great & some intelligently directed scenes holds the story together. In terms of acting Akshay Kumar steals the show with the help of some great dialogues. He is great as VILLAIN and shows his versatility as an actor. Sonakshi Sinha does her job quite well and imran khan shines as the HERO of the movie. Supporting characters are also good. Direction of Milan Luthria is good but could have been better. Cinematography is great and the movie bring back the 80's and 90's era quite well. Music is good, though the music of it's prequel had it's own charm. But this one doesn't disappoint either. Overall it's a good movie but it's dialogues and performances(specially of Akshay) makes it a great one. 8/10 for me. P.S- watch out for 2 sec guest appearance of Vidya Balan..!!
