Movie Review: Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobaara

I Watched Once Upon a Time In Mumbai Dobaara, and the Expectations were built up with the Title “Once Upon a time in Mumbaai” its Prequel, as the title suggests.

Akshay Kumar carried forward the Menacing Emraan Hashmi’s name from the Previous movie. The Latter was Lethal and His eyes and Arrogance spoke far more, while Akshay retorts to Cheesy but Well Written Lines and Keeps uttering himself as “The Raavan” or “The Villain”

The Shoaib in this Franchise is a Big Powerful Man, and a lot of his sequences have been Beautifully shot in Oman but what kinda doesn’t add up is why he doesn’t behave like the Biggest Don and Most Wanted of India, He goes on to jump Slums and kill a Possible informer on his own, Which Big don would do that? I wonder..

Coming to the Performances:

Akshay Kumar is Excellent in his Avatar, but i feel the Writing is More at Fault and while trying to make the Villain, a Demi God like for all his Entourage, the Character kind of Nose Dips. On One hand everyone is shown as Darn Scared of him and on the Other he Thrashes Film sets on his own, Hand fights when he can kill with a Gun. Weird…

Imran Khan is average, He kinda looks in his shell or all at sea at some scenes, but Whilst Romancing he seems more at Ease. His Fans though shouldnt feel disappointed

Sonakshi sinha plays an actress and Both Imran and Akshay’s Love Interest, Dont know how they arrived to her Casting coz. Imran-sonakshi Pairing looked mighty Odd to my Eyes! She plays her role well though, but the Writing doesn’t make it Clear how she Opts for the One.. and more importantly Why?

The Film’s writing was Flawed for me, and the Saving Grace of the film are the Cheesy Dialogues and One-liners that are an Integral Part of the Film through out.

The Biggest Minus is the Expectations the Title Brings in with itself, if the Film was made under another title and the theme was clearly depicted it would have been better, Here Ajay Devgn’s Eyes dont talk, there is no thehraav as they say, in Akshay’s Performance. Even Emraan and Imran are no match for each other, Emraan excelled playing the Dawood like Baddie, Imran just doesnt have the Menace in his Face or Acting of being an Aspiring Don or his Right hand.

All in All the Film is Enjoyable if you have Nothing Better to do, as a Light Hearted Action-Comedy-Gangster flick, but Dont go in with Expectations of the Brilliant Last film with the Similar title from the same Production house.

Music could have been Better, Only two songs are hummable: Ye Tune Kya kiya and Modern Version of Tayyab Ali, Infact the Last 2-3 songs of the Film could easily be done away with, as they are neither a Part of the Story nor Good, so unnecessarily drag the Movie.

Watch it For Akshay’s Flamboyant Don Act and Cheesy One Liners, If these don’t interest you, Better Give this one a Miss.

Why We Shout in Anger!









A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled ‘n asked.

‘Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?’

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout.’

‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.’ asked the saint

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.
Finally the saint explained, .

‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small…’

The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper ‘n they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other ‘n that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

He looked at his disciples and said.

‘So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’
