Mumbai Saga Full Movie Tamilrockers Movie story
Bombay was ruled by gangster Gaitonde. His men used to do what they wanted from the general shopkeepers for the desired week. No one raised a voice against them across the city. One day a 12-year-old boy, Arjun (Prateik Babbar), raised his voice against his oppression, but at the same time, the men of Gaitonde beat him to death. As soon as Arjuna's elder brother Armatya Rao (John Abraham) was told about the incident .. he burst into revenge fire that he entered the world of crime without thinking. His goal is to eliminate his biggest enemy, Gaitonde. In this he is supported by Murali Shankar (Sunil Shetty), drug dealer Nari Khan (Gulshan Grover) and Bhau (Mahesh Manjrekar), who is a leader (inspired by Balasaheb Thackeray).
Together with his three friends, Armitya soon emerges as a new gangster from Bombay .. His rule runs from Dadar to Byculla. But in the meantime, the entry is that of the specialist specialist Inspector Vijay Sawarkar, who vows to end the rule of Armatya. In such a situation, what is the link between Gaitonde, Amartya, Bhau and Inspector Vijay Sawarkar, who survives and whose reign ends .. The story of the film revolves around this.
Sanjay Gupta had earlier given a great film like Kabil (2017), so there was an expectation from the Mumbai Saga. Gangster drama in Bollywood is mostly served by making a typical masala film. Sanjay Gupta has not gone beyond this. With more than one actor, he tried to create a crime drama against the backdrop of Bombay of 1980-90, where there is a lot of action, suspense, drama and dialogue. But one side where the film is weak is that there is no newness in the film. No attempt has been made to make the film 2021-wise. Not a single suspense works in the film. All the scenes look like worn out.
John Abraham exerts his influence in the character of gangster Armtya Rao. His grip is still raw in serious and sensitive scenes, but his action in the action scenes looks tremendous. The fight scenes between John and Imran are the highlight of the film. Emperor Hashmi, who became Inspector Vijay Savarkar, has looked good. It would not be wrong to say that he has done full justice to his character.
Apart from these, two more powerful characters who are seen are Mahesh Manjrekar and Rohit Roy. Kajal Aggarwal has only a few dialogues in the role of Armitya Rao's wife, her character was kept very limited. Prateik Babbar is cast in the role of Armatiya's brother. Sunil Shetty and Gulshan Grover are among the few scenes, but their personality leaves an impact. The weakest in the film is Amol Gupte, who is the main villain.
The film is very average at the technical level. Shikhar Bhatnagar's cinematography leaves no impact. Mumbai is a city which has been shown by different directors on the big screen in quite different ways, and every time a new face of the city comes out. But this shortcoming in the 'Mumbai Saga' keeps on coming. Bunty Negi has done a good job on editing. At the same time, the screenplay written by Robin Bhatt and Sanjay Gupta seems quite clichéd. Between the action scenes and the dialogue, the writer left the story completely relaxed.
The music of the film is given by Payal Dev and Yo Yo Honey Singh, which is average. The songs are written by Homi Delhiwala and Honey Singh. Ganpati song 'Danka Baja' creates a good atmosphere, but does not remember. At the same time, the song 'Shor Machega' filmed on Honey Singh seems to be only noise.
It is nice to see actors like John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Sunil Shetty on screen together. But all these actors together could not pick up the weak story. There have been many gangster drama films in Bollywood in the past, which were also well liked. Which includes films like Sanjay Gupta's Kaante, Shootout at Lokhandwala.
'Mumbai Saga' is the story of 80s Mumbai, when gangsterism was at its peak. Here the director chose the plot well, but could not show anything new in his treatment .. Neither cinematography, nor dialogue, nor action scenes.
If you are a fan of Bollywood action film and John Abraham, then Mumbai Saga can be seen. In many ways, the film is clichéd, every scene you come to know, but if you like watching two heroes fight on the big screen, chopping bones, the Mumbai Saga will not disappoint you. 2.5 stars to Mumbai Saga.
John Abraham can become a smart, slim, passionate and agile actor like Daniel Craig, Liam Neeson or Nicholas Cage. But, they probably have to become Hulk. The Hulk is a creature born of the Marvel series with special effects. Superman made from the chemical loca that is within the hero's blood. John is a man enough in himself, why he wants to become a hulk by blowing nostrils on the screen, stretching the veins and widening his muscles. But, by doing so, his fanbase made with great difficulty has started eroding from him. He will get his voice in 'Mumbai Saga' and soon if he does not manage, the third 'Satyamev Jayate' is hardly made.
Director Sanjay Gupta's film 'Mumbai Saga' is the Dangerous Point of his typical masala film Making, from where his speed is going to catch the escape velocity, that means if he runs faster then the path of returning can be found off. The story of this film starts from there, after which the underworld in Bombay started working in an organized manner. Handful of people. This means that hundreds of thousands of people working under their hands do not know for whom they have been working. The distinction between crooks, police, businessmen starts from here. It is not known whether the khaki wearer is a big crook or more loyal to a bully. And, between these two there are some who only see the spectacle. They do anything to retain their power and put the entire city at stake.
The film 'Mumbai Saga' is the cinema of that groove which has been included in films like Dharmendra's 'Jaljala', 'Hukumat', 'Loha'. Story is nothing. There are just fluttering arms, throbbing bands and there are bullets from all sides. It may be possible to apply cotton to the ears because the theater person has to tell that his sound system is the best in the world and that the background music makers of the film have got the direction to make the music. The songs have become very bad in this affair. Background music has also become nothing more than noise.
Earlier there was a ruckus that Sanjay Gupta's film 'Mumbai Saga' would be released directly on OTT and then the film reached theaters. There is neither remote in your hand nor any control over the volume. Whatever you are, you have to face. To see the film till the end if you have a knack. Yes, there are two benefits of watching the film Poori. One looks at Sunil Shetty, it seems that there is still a lot of life left in this artist and secondly that if Mahesh Manjrekar has to direct a series like '1962: The War in the Hills', then he should skip directing and focus on acting needed. They do this work very well.
There are also two heroines in the film, this viewer has to remember. Because neither Kajal Aggarwal remembers the viewer nor Anjana Sukhani after the film ends. Just remember, the film 'Mumbai Saga' is the work of Emraan Hashmi. It is good that Imran has given up the temptation to remain a hero. He is awesome in such roles and it is to be hoped that his real Jamal will also be seen in the film Tiger 3 alongside Salman.
