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

Trivia

Sanjay Dutt's character was based on the real life Additional Commissioner of Police (ACP) Aftab Ahmed Khan Head of the ATS who was leading the gun battle with gangsters. See more »

Goofs

Shamsher Khan (played by Sanjay Dutt) is a Muslim, however when we see him writing on a notepad, we see red thread on his right wrist which is worn by Hindus. For other scenes in the film, Sanjay covered his wrist with the sleeve of his shirt, however in this scene the sleeve is folded up and we can see the red thread. See more »

Quotes

Dhingra: [interrogating the cops involved in the shootout] You mean all the charges against the ATS
[Anti-Terrorist Squad]
Dhingra:
  • lockup tortures, public shootouts, encounter killings are all lies?



Javed Shaikh: The truth is not something that you read about on some piece of paper. The truth is something that you find out, on the streets of Bombay.

Not for the Faint Hearted
28 May 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

By its very definition, a rumour is termed as hearsay or gossip. Shootout at Lokhandwala goes with the tag line - based on true rumours

  • which is quite humorous to begin with.




But the humour ends here, since the plot revolves around the ATS (Anti Terrorist Squad) of Mumbai Police, headed by Shamsher Khan (Sanjay Dutt) and his lieutenants Kaviraj (Sunil Shetty) and Javed Shaikh (Arbaaz Khan).

Their philosophy is simple: get rid of all the hoodlums in the Mumbai underworld and made it a safer place. They prefer to put a bullet in their brain rather than get involved with paperwork that follows an arrest.

Their nemesis comes with the name Maya Bhai (Vivek Oberoi) and his cohorts Buva (Tusshar Kapoor), RC (Shabbir Ahluwalia), Fattu (Ronit Roy), and 2 others who I am not familiar with.

So you could guess the rest with cops v/s robbers battling each other. Till finally the gang gets cornered at a flat in Lokhandwala and good prevails over evil.

You have heard all this before than why watch the flick? To its credit, the movie spins a common script with slick editing, camera-work and pulsating background score. Sanjay Dutt puts in an honest performance while Vivek Oberoi plays the bad guy well. There is nothing else to write home about the rest. Songs are OK, and the 'Arre Ganpat,' with its catchy rap beat will definitely find its followers.

What the movie lacks in soul, it makes up with its pace. For those who liked gangster flicks like Satya and Company, should watch this one since it will definitely appeal.

For the rest who prefer drama, romance and comedy, steer away since the gore might make you lose your appetite.
