Trivia

The film's title has been changed several times. Initially it was titled 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Again' which was changed to 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobara'. Due to the producer's beliefs in astrology and numerology, the film was again renamed. A "y" was added after a, an "a" was removed from Mumbaai, an "a" was added in Dobara, and an exclamation mark was added, making the title 'One Upon ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara!' See more »

Goofs

(at around 10 mins) During the cricket match in Sharjah, Shoaib and the pretty lady are talking to each other and betting, all while the ball hit by the batsman is in the air and is yet to be caught by the fielder. Their conversation would have taken much longer than what it takes for the ball to go up and be caught by the fielder. See more »

Highly Disappointing Sequel!
25 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

The movie being the sequel of a popular crime film 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai' was one of the most anticipated movies of the year. But, the movie is nowhere near to its prequel in comparison.

One of the drawbacks is the story as the tag line suggests 'This time it's personal.' The love story is the first priority which was not the same in the first installment.

Another possible reason is the cast of the movie. Akshay Kumar may be a very popular actor but according to me, he didn't get it right this time around whereas Emraan Hashmi playing the same character of Shoaib Khan in the first installment of the movie was much more natural.

The first part had fewer dialogues and were appropriate. This time, there are just too many of them which is not so impressing.

However, the music is quite commendable. The songs are worth listening but are played in the movie when not really required.

In other words, I would say that the movie wasn't up to the mark and didn't stand up to people's expectations.
