A disappointing news for the eagerly waiting viewers, the movie Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobara, fails at the box office. The writer Rajat Arora is not very clear with the story in the flick. It is a complete fictional movie around the character Akshay Kumar as Shoaib-The Don who rules the city of dreams, Mumbai. The other entries in the movie are the Lootera girl, Sonakshi Sinha as Jasmine and Imran Khan as Aslam. The tag line ‘This Time its Personal’ makes it clear to the audience about the love triangle.
Director Milan Luthria usually focuses on the genres like Crime, Romance and Action. Too many fake dialogues in the movie make it a drop down and clears that the grip of the story is absent from the start.
Aslam, Shoaib’s assistant falls in love with an innocent small town girl, Jasmine. Shoaib’s mission is to secure his rival (Mahesh Majrekar) which brings him back to Mumbai. But during his mission he falls in love with the lady of innocence. On one hand Shoaib starts dreaming to rule Jasmine’s heart and on the other hand Aslam too falls in love with her.
The dialogue delivery by the cast is not up to the mark and is less appreciated by the audiences. The prequel of the movie starring Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi played well at the box office. The dialogues such as “Naam bataya toh pehchan bura maan jayegi… Daan kiya toh dhanda bura maan jayega… Jisne doodh mein nimbu daala, paneer uski.” fail to get the feel of the character from Shoaib’s end.
The music is composed by Pritam. The famous song of actor Rishi Kapoor ‘Taiyaib Ali’ which is re-portrayed in the movie is appreciated. The love song ‘Ye tune kya kiya’ is already ruling the music charts. Nonetheless, The prequel has set a mark in the audience’s minds and this time it is about conquering the love of his life
