Movie Review : Once upon a Time In mumbaai talks about an era which takes us back through the memory lane in to the abyss of the mafia world ruling Mumbai in the 80’s when Mumbai breathed terror all the time. According to media speculations the move centers on the lives of Dawood Ibrahim and Haji Mastan who were the order of the day at that time. The movie directors, spokesmen and disclaimer all claim that it has no inspiration from any person’s life and that the similarities are mere co incidences but the parallels are too distinct too ignore.
The quality of the movie lies that besides the powerful storyline of the rising of the prince and the falling of the reigning King, the music of the movie does the wonders for the audience. The compositions are just awe-binding.
Set in the era of 1970s the movie tracks the careers of two famous gangsters Sultan Mirza palyed by Ajay Devgan and his recipient in line Shoaib Khan a classic character played by Emraan Hashmi and then their conflicts, which ensues when Shoaib challenges his protector and claims to rule the underworld of Mumbai is simply marvelous.
Director Milan Luthria’s has worked extensively for the movie which is completely visible in performances of the lead gangster’s as well as Randeep hooda as the tale narrating police officer, the jewellery shop romantic scenes from Prachi’s and Emraan conflicts with Ajay.
Pritam’s music is already rising up the charts doing the trick for the movie. The on screening pair of Ajay and Kangana ( a 70’s actress) is replete with amazing chemistry. And added to this romance is the pair of Prachi and Emraan.
