superb, but only for a few moments....
15 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Once upon a time in mumbai dobara is a much anticipated sequel to 2010 movie Once upon a time in mumbai...Akshay Kumar carries forward the role of Shoaib,the underworld don and the movie depicts his love story and the characters circumspecting it...

Despite being sequel to Once upon a time in mumbai, which was a pure gangster flick, this movie has a completely romantic feel and hence you will be disappointed if you enter the theater with an expectation of this being like the previous one...

To begin with story and screenplay are the most crucial factor in any movie...and this movie does not live up-to that factor sincerely.But given so, it begins on a high note and ends on a high note as well...The climax just makes you overlook the lack of substance in the middle...The love story is as redundant as it can get with nothing new...In short, the opening and ending of the movie compensate the sluggish middle part...

As far as acting goes, Akshay Kumar as Don looks good but at times his accent doesn't go with the character he is playing, but eventually his performance is good and he looks brutal in some scenes.Imran Khan fails to impress and again is not suitable for this kind of role, while Sonakshi Sinha looks decent.The supporting cast is just not good enough...

What makes this movie worth watching is the dialogs, especially by Akshay Kumar and incredible background score...its one of the best in years in bollywood...

This movie would have been much better had it been a mixture of love story and crime, apart from just being personal...Nevertheless, good narration, dialogs, Akshay's acting and unbelievable background music makes your money count and can be watched once...
