“Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara is enjoyable in parts but due to bad writing it doesn't match up to the entertainment offered by its prequel. One time watch for Akshay Kumar fans!”

If dialogues like, "taare dekhne ka bahaut shaukh hai na, aa mein tujhe sitara banata hoon" used in normal conversation are up your alley, read further.

Going into OATIMD I was already expecting the dialogue baazi, seeti maar moments & sensationalization of the bad guy. Ofcourse that was what I got, but I also went in expecting a fresh storyline, some interesting plot twists & a wholesome entertaining experience. Did I get that?

Alas, this one is way too long, with the same plot - the fun moments = Timepass.

Shoaib Khan(AK) is flamboyant, mouths his fancy one liners, taps chairs to grab attention & has the swag of Sanjay Dutt of the yore. He spots a slum dweller Aslam(IK) & likes the boy. He mentors him & like the first film, they decide to go at loggerheads, this time over a girl they both fall in love with, Jasmine(Sonakshi).
How this war unfolds & who wins, you need to watch & find out.

Not that I was looking for intellectual stimulation from the film, but I really hoped for a rollicking entertainer. It has the item numbers, the humour, the qawali, the action(which could have been more) & a lot of high points, but they all come from only one man, Akshay Kumar.

Akshay Kumar genuinely does a fantastic job of the bad guy & makes you like him. The problem is his adversary possesses the action chops of a stone. Imran disappoints & one really wishes it was Emraan instead. He is a misfit in the massy fare and should stay away from the same.

Sonakshi does well & holds her ground in this 80's throwback.

Director Milan Luthria could have done so much with this franchise but sadly, he churns out a mediocre entertainer that I would watch at home on a Sunday evening.

I wont say that I didnt like the film but I also cant say that I really did. It is somewhere down the middle & leaves you disappointed that this could have been so much more. How I wished they had revamped the whole plot instead of just redoing the same.

Having said that, I still preferred it to Chennai Express so incase you need to choose, you got my pick.
