You’d think that Sonakshi Sinha is on my radar, but she isn’t. She just happens to be starring with some of my favorite leading men. And this time, she’s in a love triangle with Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan along with Sonali Bendre.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually enjoy Sinha as a personality and find her acting green but natural. After viewing one of her first performances Rowdy Rathore, along side Akshay Kumar, I was pleasantly surprised and rather look forward to seeing her with Imran as well.
OUATMD! is the sequel to Once Upon a Time in Mumbai (2010), which starred Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashimi, Randeep Hooda, Prachi Desai and Kangna Ranaut. That film was a gangsters paradise, where this latest film is touted a “crime-romance.” However, both are period in setting which makes for great wardrobes and ambiance.
I have to admit there’s something tantalizing about anything with a bit of crime and romance. Somehow the stakes seem higher and the romance debatable. And, any story that makes love an option and not a given, raises my tentacles.
The trailer hit theaters back in May and scheduled promotions kicked in late June, where Imran has wowed reporters with his confidence and cheekiness. I, for one, am not surprised, for this role is a perfect follow up to Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, which released back in January(check it out!).
Can’t wait to watch him run around in stone-washed jeans and a pimp ‘stache!
OUATIMD! premieres August 15.
