ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI is an extremely well-made film that lingers in your memory.

Rajeev Masand
There’s not much to dislike, really. Here a slick product with great acting, and a gripping storyline set to a thumping background score.
SIFY
Revisit the 1970s Mumbai underworld when smuggling was the most heinous crime (the age of innocence huh!) and benevolent don Sultan Mirza (reference point: Haji Mastan) was the mafioso king.

The plot is simple and has been done-to-death in the past. If you intend to know more about the prime character references in the film, just turn to the numerous Google pages attributed to them. Traveling to a time in the early 1970′s when Mumbai was Bomb

Once Upon A Time In Mumbaii is worth the price of your ticket and more. It's a film that almost gets everything right. Highly Recommended.

The real hero of this film is the writing. Rajat Arora's dialogues flow from the storytelling in a smooth flow of poetry and street wisdom.
NDTV 
Milan Lutharia who gave the absorbing 'Taxi No. Nau Do Gyarah', comes with a killer concept which delivers as it promised on paperdestined to rule not only Mumbai but the entire India, the flick is a toast to Bollywood gangster flicks and undoubtedly rewinds the 70's, 80's nostalgia where you loved 'Deewar', 'Dharmatma', 'Ooche Log', 'Scarface' and still do. Concentrating equally on the production, drama, writing, acting and music, 'Once Upon....' is a loaded Bollywood gun that fires the right bullets at the right time.
India Glitz
Fact can sometimes be sluggish and fiction, lop-sided. So when one is attempting a combination of the two, especially within the parameters of commercial cinema, it's never an easy task

Once Upon A Time In Mumbai there was Bollywood which used to give us great films, but not anymore.
What comes in mind when someone talks of Mumbai- Simply Bollywood and Underwood (Read underworld).
