Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai was a scorching hit and it raised the bar for Balaji Motion Pictures when it comes to making a sequel for it. So we thought of bringing in a look into the movie’s plot. But the sequel, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara has been one of the most awaited sequels this year. Milan Luthria, who was a part of the first installment and also celebrated the success of The Dirty Picture, has directed this romantic drama which has been partly shot in the Sultanate of Oman and mostly in Mumbai, recreating the 80’s era.
Rajat Aroraa who penned down for the prequel and The Dirty Picture, is the writer and Pritam will be giving the soundtrack of the film.
The sequel will see Akshay Kumar’s character’s transit from an archetypal hero to a flamboyant bad boy, Shoaib. He’s joined by Imran Khan (Aslam) and Sonakshi Sinha (Jasmine). Sonali Bendre will be making a comeback to the silver screen in a camero after a gap of almost ten years. Abhimanyu Singh is playing the role of the cop in this sequel which was previously played by Randeep Hooda.
The movie revolves around the underworld don, Shoaib (Akshay Kumar) who killed his mentor (Sultan Mirza) to gain supreme power and is now the king of mafia. He regularly visits the poor Muslim areas where he grew up and it’s in one such visit that he meets Aslam (Imran Khan) and considers taking him under his wing and slowly but steadily, Aslam becomes a favourite of Shoaib. Shoaib’s only loyal and trust worthy best friend is Javed, who overlooks the empire for him and his former love Mumtaz (Sonali Bendre) who is now his closest friend.
Shoaib aspires to become a superpower entity in Bombay but is met with resistance from two existing crime lords – Vardha and Arun. The two contemporaries join hands with a cop – Sreenu, who is hellbent on ending Shoaib’s reign in Mumbai.
While ruling over Bombay is Shoaib’s ultimate goal, Shoaib stumbles across a young actress named Yasmin (Sonakshi Sinha). Love strikes and he is taken aback by her looks and freshness. His attraction for Yasmin gradually turns into obsession and this results in a rift between Shoaib and Aslam.
