Storyline

On a calm summer day in 1991, in the bustling Lokhandwala Complex, five criminals including Maya and Dilip were counting 70 lakhs in flat no. 32 B, when 286 policemen, headed by ACP Khan, took strategic positions around their building. A gunfire ensued and the entire nation witnessed the most talked about daylight encounter lasting 6 hours that transformed suburban Mumbai into a virtual war zone. Shootout At Lokhandwala is the story of a seasoned cop, Khan, who chased Khalistani extremists, handpicked cops like Inspector Kaviraj Patil and Constable Javed Shaikh, and dared to engage trigger-happy gangsters in a residential locality of Mumbai. Khan's fight went beyond the encounter as he faced inquisition from his own department and legal charges of human rights violations. Shootout At Lokhandwala is the story of an upcoming underworld gangster, Maya, and his highly skilled partner, Dilip. The two made extortion the buzzword in the early 90s and dared to disobey the big bhai of the ... Written by Becca

Quotes

Javed Shaikh: Ah, the f-word. As usual used with an utter lack of relevance or context to that most basic of human acts, which it so explicitly and yet so succintly describes. A sad but unavoidable linguistic travesty in these modern times!

Based on True Tumors

Directed by Apporva Lakhia, Shootout at Lokhandwala is another of those movies where the bad guys look good, and glorification of the villains are in bright limelight. The movie was fast paced and will keep you seated throughout the gun fires, blood baths and murderous killings. The only thing that dragged was the song sequences. The songs in themselves are good but I would have really wished they were not there at all. They should have done an Extended or Director's Uncut or Song Enhanced versions of DVDs. That way, people will still watch the movie and many will buy the DVDs, thus making more money for the film.

On that fateful day of 1991, at one of the Mumbai's sprawling sub-urban place (Lokhandwala), 5 gangsters were relaxing and counting their extortion money. The gangsters were led by Maya Dolas who had begun to rebel against Dawood Ibahim. Informations of their hide-out reached the then ACP Aftab Ahmed Khan, who brought in a platoon of about 300 odd Mumbai Police force to squash them. What followed is one of the most memorable shootout that every happened in Mumbai. The police fired uncountable rounds of bullets and the Maya led gangsters retaliated too. Eventually, all the 5 gangsters were killed and few policemen were hurt.

Vivek Oberoi in the role of Maya Dolas was frighteningly awesome. I don't really felt any importance given to the other 4 members of the gang. They seem to have been randomly picked to fill in the spots. Of course, Tushar Kapoor (who played the role of Dilip Buva) was there with the next important role after Vivek, thanks to his sister Ektaa Kapoor (the K lady of the idiot box). He tried his best, I guess, but his acting sucks like a monkey who just found some zoo visitors to entertain with its banana tricks. Why don't he moved in to his sister's serial, he can do much better job there and we don't have to really bear him in movies (at least for us who detest the TV serials). Tushar had never been good in any roles not only in his first negative role in this movie. His only slightly commendable role is playing the dumb guy in Golmaal: Fun Unlimited.

The remaining 3 don't really remind you of anything unless you've been glued and try to remember each and every scenes. Yes, yes, the ghost-seeing thingy of Rc (Shabbir Ahluwalia) after he shot a family by mistake. The shooting incident of Fattu (Rohit Roy), the day he earned the named Fattu when he finally was able to do a bang-bang-kill-kill. And the others, I don't remember them to link to any typical characteristics.

Seasoned Cop and counter terrorists specialist, Aftab Ahmed Khan (Sanjay Dutt) chased and encounter Khalistani extremists, handpicked cops Inspector Kaviraj Patil (Sunil Shetty) and Constable Javed Shaikh (Arbaaz Khan) to fight against the girth of many terrorists in Mumbai during his hay days. Khan and his team took care of the Maya gang when the gangsters made extortions a buzzword in the early 90's. The movies shows Khan and his trusted Anti Terrorists Squad (ATS) doing many daring encounters; so much involved in their activities that they jeopardise their personal and private life.

Btw, the real Aftab Ahmed Khan appeared in a cameo in the movie, playing the role of S. Ramamurthy, his former boss and the then Police Commissioner.
