Review: 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai'



Review: 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai'

The fascination with gangster movies has been immense worldwide. On this side of the Atlantic, several gangster films have left giant footprints on the sands of time. Films like 'Deewar' [Yash Chopra], 'Dharmatma' [Feroz Khan], 'Nayakan' [Mani Ratnam], 'Angaar' [Shashilal Nair], 'Parinda' [Vidhu Vinod Chopra], 'Agneepath' [Mukul Anand], Satya and 'Company' [Ramgopal Varma], 'Vaastav' [Mahesh Manjrekar], 'Gangster' [Anurag Basu], 'D' [Vishram Sawant] and Shootout At 'Lokhandwala' [Apoorva Lakhia] have tremendous recall value to this day.

'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai' recreates an era that so many of us have left behind and for those who arrived on this planet post 80s, we are sure, they must have visited the era through some medium or the other, mainly movies and internet or during their academic careers.

The movie is a fascinating story that talks of how the mafia came into force for the first time in Mumbai. A thriller that depicts the crime scenario in Mumbai during the 70s and 80s. The rise to power of two young boys, in different age-groups, who grew up to 'rule' the streets of Mumbai.
