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

Thrilling & exciting
8 June 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A brilliantly made movie from the White Feathers Films Production. A must watch for all action movie lovers. Based on the real incident of the 1992 firing at Lokhandwala Complex in Andheri in India. There were certain Factual Errors in the movie however it is a gr8 cinematic experience. All the stars have portrayed their characters brilliantly. Sanjay Dutt as Shamsher Singh & Vivek Oberoi as Maya Dolas are outstanding. Suniel as Kaviraj Patil & Tushar as Dilip Buwa gave a fantastic performance. The movie was highly under-rated due to excess violence which is not a regular in Hindi Movies There were certain parts which were included just to increase the length of the movie. However the exiting climax covered up all the flaws.................. All in all a brilliant movie.
