Once upon a time at home, when I saw the theatrical of "Once
Upon A Time In Mumbaai", I felt that this movie won't earn
too much at the box office and it will a non interesting
movie too, but when I heard its reviews I found it really
very interesting, and it turned my mind when I went for its
show, the film has outstanding and unique story, there were
numerous films based on the theme of crime but only some of
them were able to percept themselves properly and it was one
of them, Milan Luthria is good at his work but I liked Rajat
Arora for his great contribution in the movie from his
dialogues, personally according to my point of view
direction could be better than this but as like water off a
duck's back film made fantastically great, I think this was
the role Ajay Devgn awaiting for to prove himself that how
matured he is in his acting because of his previous some
films like "Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge" and "All The Best" his
image was turned into a comic actor though he is not for
comedy, it doesn't mean that he is not good in comedy he is
versatile but there is something which suits on some actor
only, Ajay Devgn is for serious roles which makes him
different than other actors, his films like "Hum Dil De
Chuke Sanam", "Khakee", "Raajneeti", "Gangajal" and so on
have their own impact on the audience as compared to his
comic ones. Overall the film is great & watchable...
