Director Sanjay Gupta has made his comeback with a gangster drama and it lives up to the expectations. Based on true events, Mumbai Saga is set in the early 90s when Mumbai was still called Bombay. The city was then ruled by the underworld. After Shoot-Out At Wadala, John Abraham is again seen in a gangster avatar as he portrays the role of an underworld don name Amartya Rao. What happens when Amartya crosses paths with Vijay Savarkar (Emraan Hashmi) a cop, who would do anything to take down Rao; forms the crux of the film.
Amartya is shown as someone who believes in peace, but his principles go for a toss when his younger brother, Arjun is attacked by Gaitonde (Amole Gupte) who is a local goon. Amartya decides to take the matters into his own hand and gain all the power to rule the city. But, things take an unfortunate turn after he ends up killing an industrialist (Samir Soni). The industrialist’s wife decides to place a reward of Rs 10 crores for anyone who kills Amartya. And then steps in- Vijay Savarkar, who is all set to bring Amartya’s world crumbling down.
What makes this movie a nail biter are the well-choreographed action sequences and the leads have performed them perfectly well. But looks like Emraan stole the show even though we got to see less of him comparatively. Emraan left no stone unturned in playing the righteous cop who does his duty like a ritual. As this is a Goon vs Cop movie, you are left wanting for more when it comes to face-offs between John and Emraan in the film as there were only a few. Mahesh Manjrekar, Amole Gupte, and Rohit Roy’s performances are applaud-worthy as they brought their own nuance to the table. The cinematography and direction speak for themselves and you will not be disappointed in that area.
All in all, Mumbai Saga is a true blue massy film that is a great one time watch. Bollywood Bubble gives this movie 3 stars.
