In fact, the dialogue writing is such it elevates even an ordinary sequence to great levels. One rarely comes across such potent dialogue in today's times.

Times of India Movie Review by Nikhat Kazmi
….and here-in lies the dramatic core of Rajat Arora's dynamic script which catapults the two lead characters as a study in contrast.
Glamsham.com by Pankaj Sabnani
The pre-eminent part about ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI is undoubtedly its dialogues (Rajat Arora) which reminds one about the Salim-Javed jodi.
...The real hero of this film is the writing. Rajat Arora's dialogues flow from the storytelling in a smooth flow of poetry and street wisdom.
Rajat Arora has penned a brilliant script which holds the audience’s attention from the word ‘go’. Unlike many underworld films seen in recent times, this one is not too violent or morose as it also tackles the love lives of the two dons....Rajat Arora’s clapworthy and weighty dialogues add to the effect of the drama.
Indiatimes.com by Gaurav Malani
Once Upon A Time there were writers like Salim-Javed in Bollywood.
