  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-4
There are very few euphoric moments in the film partly because of its lazy writing that is carried out rather shakily, and rest because it doesn’t meet the standards set by its colossal predecessor. I can almost count the number of times I felt that ecstatic high inside me during the film.

  •  IndiaGlitz -Vishal Verma Rating-4
Obviously Milan Lutharia and his writer Rajat Arora seem to have launched into this project backed by Balaji Motion Pictures with a faith in their own brilliance (Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, Dirty Picture) but call it laziness, arrogance or over confidence they both allow the squishy love triangle

  •  Box Office Capsule - Rating-5
If it is a sequel and that too Akshay Kumar starrer then film has to  be big. OUATIMD is much awaited film and releasing on big Independence Day. Film has ensemble star cast consisting of Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha,Mahesh Manjerkar and Sonali Bendre.

  •  The W14 -Mayank Shekar Rating-2
Walk very gently into this film, if you must. There is enough plywood used for the sets and so much plastic around for performances that if you’re not careful, the whole picture might just collapse on your head. I think it did mine, still reeling as I am under the heavy assault of fake dialoguebaazi

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-5
The Hindi film industry's fascination with gangster films dates back to the 1970s. Ironically, this year has witnessed a plethora of gangster films invading our cineplexes, while a few of them were inspired by real-life characters as well. Additionally, the year also marks a substantial rise

  •  Rediff -Raja Sen Rating-4
The first Once Upon A Time In Mumbai was -- while not a good film by any stretch of the imagination -- a tolerable throwback to the dialogue-laden movies of yore. Things have gotten far worse this time around, with characters talking exclusively in the sort of aphoristic couplets found on auto-rickshaw

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-3
So you have a hit film in hand, what's the next plausible step? Make a sequel of it! Yes, that's sadly the ongoing culture in Bollywood and even some of the top filmmakers are giving in to the lure of encashing the fame earned in their previous hits irrespective whether those films deserve a sequel or not.

  •  Zee News -Gayatri Sankar Rating-4
Milan Luthria and Ekta Kapoor had woven the magical ‘Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai’ that featured Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi. The filmmakers also garnered applause for Vidya Balan’s ‘The Dirty Picture’.But the hit formula that they had devised seems to have gone awry this time around.

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-7
Once Upon a Time... Bollywood movies were enamored by dreaded D's of the underworld. They still are. Whether the story is told in retro-rap, or with stylish designer double Dons, or with gloss-free rawness of realism. This endless 'lawless' love affair continues.

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-3
What did you expect from the sequel of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai which came out in 2010? Given that its director and writer are the same, I knew that the clunkily-titled-and-spelt Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara! would tread the same territory: gangsters- muscle-flexing-in-Mumbai-which-used

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-3
Characters in Hindi movies tend to be more naïve than the audience that's watching them on screen. The audience will guess early on that the most earnest cop in the unit is the traitor who's been leaking information to the bad guy. Or that the person who talks about living life to the fullest

  •  Mumbai Mirror -karan Anshuman Rating-5
The Milan Luthria/Rajat Arora director-writer combo is back; this time with an even more baffling titled film: Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara. Stare at that for a moment and see if it makes sense on its own and then in context with the film.

  •  Mid-Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-4
There is a brilliant scene in this film. Akshay Kumar (as the dreaded don Shoaib Khan) after killing a rival on a busy street, walks into a police station and walks out unrecognised, with his freedom and his wicked charm intact. This one bright scene actually works against the film.
