    Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai

    ★★★½

    Great dialoguebaazi. Superb album. Good background score. Underutilized Randeep Hooda and Prachi Desai. Ajay Devgn and Kangana Ranaut were nice but Emraan Hashmi was downright bad.

    Overall a good enough masala flick.

    ★½

    The movie is filled with choppy editing, bad writing, cringy one-liners, (no) acting, unnecessary gaalis, casual sexism, excessive objectification, and loads of problematic triggering scenes. The age difference and 'romance' between the leads is uncomfortable, to say the least. The tone of the movie keeps shifting between serious guy trying-to-murder-everyone and Robinhood cop lusted-by-everyone trying to be philosophical-yet-funny.
    Also how is an action movie pathetically bad at action sequences!?!?
    Even Randeep Hooda has started looking monotonous in his roles and is wayyy off in here

    Enjoyed one guy and one song
