Being the first major release of the year and coming from the trusted hands of Vishal Bharadwaj, a lot was expected from this film, which it failed to deliver.
The film failed to woo the critics, as well as the audience. The trailers were promising of what turned out to be an over-stretched film made on a weak screenplay.
A well intended movie gone totally wrong.
Director: Sajid Khan
No one expects a national-award winner from Sajid Khan but this film fell short even of the ‘Sajid Khan standards’. Everything about the film was so bad that even the reliable Ajay Devgn and the over the top promotion could not save the film. The film flopped big time at the box-office.
Rajkumar Gupta, the critically acclaimed director of ‘Aamir’ and ‘No one killed Jessica’, raised a few eyebrows when he announced a comedy film with Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan. But the audience trusted him and the trailers were not that bad either. The Film’s plot was fully revealed in its trailers and it looked promising but the end product turned out to be an obvious ‘failing to laugh’ affair.
Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbaai Dobaara !
Director: Milan Luthria
Coming on the heels of its highly successful prequel, a lot of hype was created around this Akshay Kumar, Sonakhshi Sinha starrer Milan Luthria film. The film ended up being a mere shadow of the first one. Right from its script and direction to its music and acting; everything about the film turned out to be below average resulting in a -well, below average film.
Director: Apoorva Lakhia
Remaking any Amitabh Bachchan classic is no mean task and in the end that’s all that this remake ended up proving.
Changes in the original script left it shabby and its length made it lazy.
Sanjay Dutt was aptly casted but had too little to do. Priyanka Chopra and Prakash Raaj were again underused.
