Imran is too clean-cut to be a goon

Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbaai Dobaara! had me cheering for the bad guy. Which, at least in the movies, is never a bad thing. The film gets one extra star for Akshay Kumar, who makes a stellar killer.
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times 
Three years back director Milan Luthria surprised all of us by giving a fantastic gangster drama 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbai'. It was not a path breaking film and had story which we have seen it plenty of times, but still the movie had its own style and m
Divya Solgama, Movie Zadda
It has enough going for it – a no-nonsense script, a clipped pace, punchy dialogues and spiffy cinematography – to justify its 160-minure runtime.
One deadly don. One young protégé. Both in love with the same starlet. Who wins the girl in this felonious feat?
Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India
‘Main khiladi tha, ab poora khel hoon,’ (first I was the player, now I am the entire game) declares underworld kingpin Shoaib (Akshay Kumar).
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
The film could have worked if there was better direction and a script to back it. What a waste!
Three’s a crowd!

Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara’ disappoints on various accounts. Most of all it is the labored pace and the tedious romantic track that makes the film a boredom-inducing watch.

UATIMD should remind Bollywood what we all always knew: Never make a sequel just for the heck of it if you don't have a genuine idea to entertain.

Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara is one film that one wouldn't want to chance twice upon! Inane plot force conflict and lazy writing can bore you to death. Take this time if you want undisturbed three hour long sleep in an air-conditioned hall.
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
The first part was an out and out gangster flick wherein it showed Mumbai in the 70’s when mafia was emerging and Sultan (Ajay Devgan) was ruling the city until Shoaib (then played by Imraan Hashmi) his protégé ditches him and takes control of the mafia o
Shiraj Dakshy, Rate Movies Here
One can safely say that Milan Luthria clearly couldn’t create the magic of the prequel. The weakest part of the film is its star-cast and the weak direction. If you are a hard-core Akshay Kumar fan and are keen on seeing him as a don, then watch this film

Disappointing and something which you would never like to watch “dobara”.

It was a fascinating time – nobody spoke simple lines and tapping the floor with a chair was a menacing act – at least, that is what Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara! wants us to believe.

Just another gloomy and mindless gangster flick!

Halfway into Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara!, Akshay Kumar playing the all-powerful, Dawood-style, murderous mafia don Shoaib, declares: “Villain hoon main, villain.” Anupama Chopra writes.
‘वंस अपॉन ए टाइम इन मुंबई दोबारा’ यदि आप यह फिल्‍म देखने के लिए इसमें दाखिल हो ही गए हैं तो ऐहतियात से चलिए। फिल्‍म के सेट्स में खासे प्‍लायवुड का इस्‍तेमाल किया गया है और अभिनेताओं की अदाकारी में भी इतना प्‍लास्टिक है...
Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara! is an average film with dialogues and performances as its big plus points and the burden of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and limited action as it minus points. Its huge cost is probably its biggest problem as the merits
  Still, there were expectations of the movie to excel considering it is directed by the able Milan Luthriya and had dialogues by Rajat Aroraa who has given gems in movies like in the prequel of this film, Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai; and Dirty Picture.
