A complete mockery of the prequel
16 August 2013 | by jahangirhussain74See all my reviews

Nothing works for this film. Be it the casting, direction, music, editing etc. Milan Luthria just sleepwalked through this film, thinking that he need not pay much attention to the technical aspects of OUATIMD because the prequel was a hit. What worked for OUATIM was the fact that it had the superb combo of Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi who looked more the part of gangsters than the total mockery that Akshay Kumar and the novice Imran Khan make of their roles as gangsters. Akshay Kumar shows that he's effective in delivering punchlines and one-liners in a movie and that's about it! He just doesn't seem to be getting under the skin of a bad guy. Never expected this kind of stuff from him. He did a much better job as a villain in Ajnabee 12 years ago. Imran Khan looks raw with his urbane looks to match the part of a small time crook. Sonakshi Sinha, well I was already having doubts about her acting capabilities and with this movie, I was proved right. She's only in Bollywood because of her filmi lineage (being the daughter of Shatrughan Sinha) and that's about it! The first half is incredibly boring while the second half seems to be picking up the momentum but goes slow at some point. The music is pathetic! Overall, a poor show which is not worth the wait! I thank the makers of this film for deciding not to release OUATIMD with the super successful Chennai Express. Otherwise, it would have faced an even more tough competition.
