Sanjay Gupta’s “Mumbai Saga” comes out in March 2021. “Mumbai Saga” features early 90s Mumbai (later Bombay), when the city came under Bhaus control. With a powerful cast, the film managed to attract the attention of the public. However, this time the villain won. Due to the pandemic, the film was unable to impress people in theaters. It still manages to attract attention with its fiery music and storytelling. This film was released a month ago, and we are thinking about submitting our review of it. Scroll down for more details on the Mumbai Saga.
There are many movies based on gangs and gangsters in the city of Mumbai. Movies like “Shootout at Lokhandwala,” “Once Upon a Time In Mumbai,” “Haseena Parker,” and many more. Filled with blood, gunfire, and fighting, they prove to be action pack films for audiences. Amid the pandemic, the Mumbai Saga made its debut to entertain audiences. It also reflects the life of a fictional gangster as he keeps things under his control while not getting caught.

At the same time, Sanjay Gupta is directing as well as writing dialogue with Vibhav Vishal. Indian movies are nothing without the music, and Mumbai Saga has them too. The music is performed by Yo Yo Honey Singh, Payal Dev, Tanishk Bagchi, and the score by Amar Mohile. Undoubtedly, he has the kind of music he needs.
Mumbai Saga – Movie Review
Many critics have provided reviews for this new action film. Apart from that, the welcome Mumbai Saga received was mixed, with positive and negative comments.
The film starts off with great interest when we take a look at old Mumbai in the 80s-90s. Power is in the hands of those who pay the most. From police to politicians, everyone works, whoever pays the most. Mafia and gangsters rule the city, while simple men work to feed their families. Writer, producer, and director Sanjay Gupta has a busy screenplay because we find chaos in almost every scene.
This film gets its meaning when we see Amartya Rao (John Abraham) turning into the mafia himself after his brother Arjun (Prateik Babbar) was nearly killed by thugs. Amartya, who used to be an ordinary man, turned into Mumbai’s most feared mafia in no time. Among the many, a police officer, Vijay Savarkar (Emraan Hashmi), is on a search to arrest Amartya. On his way to find Amartya, we meet another character, who plays a significant role in the film. With their characters, they help strengthen the storyline as well as the film.
The performances of the star players were extraordinary. The dialogue reflects Ignorance and nothing beats when Indian actors deliver their lines in a complete swag style. Some of them will surely be famous on social media. On top of that, songs like “Shor Machega” and “Lut Gaye” broke all the blood and violence we saw on screens.
The film also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Gulshan Grover, Mahesh Manjrekar, Amole Gupte, Rohit Roy, Sunil Shetty, and Anjana Sukhani.
Mumbai Saga – Box Office
The Mumbai Saga was meant to win hearts, and it worked. However, it couldn’t reach everyone. Unfortunately, the film made its debut when the coronavirus re-emerged in the country. Additionally, Maharashtra is the most affected state in the country, leading to lockdowns and a curfew.
The film collected 2.82 crores on its first day. And according to statistics, Mumbai Saga has grossed a worldwide gross of ₹ 22.29 crore.
As for the review, Bollywood Hungama wrote, “MUMBAI SAGA is a film that is adorned with moments of dialogue-worthy applause, sudden twists, and lots of style. ”
Another person wrote saying that Sanjay Gupta always had the upper hand when it came to crime films, but this time he played his cards wrong, and the result was not appreciated by the audience.
