In the Mumbai Saga movie, John Abraham’s character DON Amartya Rao has just a single objective throughout everyday life — to lead the city. He doesn’t think twice before killing someone, and there is nobody who could stop him. But it’s not all easy for him with Emraan Hashmi’s cop chasing him to every step. Now, who will win the battle between a Dangerous Don and a Determined cop, remains to be seen. However, from the trailer, Mumbai Saga seems to be like any other gangster film. You won’t even miss a ‘Ganpati’ song as the ‘hero’ throws a few punches, and the cop chases him. There is also the customary good don meeting the good cop for a final meeting before the big blow-up. In other words, if you have one gangster drama from this school of thought, you have seen them all. ( download now bolly4u)
Before the trailer release, John Abraham shared his poster on Instagram where he described the film as, “The one who wants to RULE at all costs Vs The one who wants to STOP him, no matter what #MumbaiSaga begins in cinemas on 19th March.”( tamilrockers)
Mumbai Saga was supposed to release in June 2020, but after the cinema halls were shut during the pandemic, the release was delayed. There was also speculation that the makers were considering a digital release. Gupta, however, believed that his gangster saga is best viewed on the 70mm screen. He had written on Twitter, “And the more we see it & experience it every day the more convinced we are that it needs THEATRES. #MumbaiSaga.”
Claiming that Mumbai Saga is his most ambitious movie to date, Gupta said in a statement, “25 years, 17 films later I had to give my audience something bigger and better. Mumbai Saga is by far my most ambitious film which needed a visionary producer. And I am grateful to Bhushan Kumar for putting his faith and might in it. It is one story that needs to be said on screen.”
Produced by T-Series and White Feather Films production, Mumbai Saga is slated for a release on March 19.
