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

Hell of a shootout
4 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An amazing film that is based on true rumours although most films that are based on actual events are crap. Shootout at Lokhandwala was so well written & directed and had riveting performances from a first-rate cast, every actor did a fantastic job even Amitabh & Abhishek Bachchan in their special appearances. I never heard about the incident before and I don't know if it's true or not but the film is made so dark & sinister that gives the tensive mood also it is emotionally & psychologically thrilling, the whole movie is charged with pulse pounding suspense and seems like it's really happening. A Sanjay Gupta film but the director is Apoorva Lakhia the one who made Ek Ajnabee which was also good that's why I wanted to watch the movie because both of them are terrific filmmakers and the title is eye catching. Overall it is just great how they managed to make a film on a very simple story about five criminals in a flat surrounded by hundreds of policemen. Just a few more words about the cast:

AMITABH BACHCHAN: Simply the number 1 in Bollywood.

SANJAY DUTT: One of my favourite actors.

SUNIEL SHETTY: No matter what role he doe's action or romantic it will suit him.

ARBAAZ KHAN: Good actor but hardly appears in any film.

VIVEIK OBEROI: Did really well as a bad guy after Company.

TUSSHAR KAPOOR: Good to see him in action after so many romantic roles.

DIA MIRZA: Soooooooooo beautiful that I don't need to say anything else about her.

NEHA DHUPIA: Her best performance will always be in Qayamat.

ABHISHEK BACHCHAN: Doing really well now keep up the good work.
