Mumbai Saga Review
Mumbai Saga is full of action and power-packed performances. John Abraham as Amartya Rao hits the bull eye with his performance. Emraan Hashmi as an Encounter Specialist, is rock solid. Suniel Shetty has a short role, but he stands out in his impactful role. Kajal Aggarwal and Anjana Sukhani have not much to do in this male-dominated movie. Amole Gupte and Mahesh Manjrekar’s performance are impressive.
The screenplay is gripping and keeps you engaged till the end. The first half of the movie keeps you to the edge of your seat. While the second half is a little predictable. The dialogues of the film are clap-worthy and are delivered with impact. One of the dialogues is ‘Bandook se nikli goli na Eid dekhti hai na Holi’. They are the highlights of this power-packed entertainer. The music is where the movie lags. Director Sanjay Gupta did a nice work with Mumbai Saga. Overall, Mumbai Saga is a movie that deserves to watch on the big screen. We give the movie 3.5 stars out of 5.
