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

The song 'Ganpat' in its second verse mentions Bipasha (Bipasha Basu), Mallika (Mallika Sherawat) & Aishwarya (Aishwarya Rai). All of these actresses started acting in movies only after 1995, where as the song supposedly takes place in mid 1991. See more »
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!

The star-cast is awesome. Which is one major factor for the success of such movies. All the big and bad boys of Indian cinema with a background image of guns hurling "dirty harry" actalikes. Shoot to kill seems apt for a frequently used dialouge by Sanjay Dutt who appears absolutely stunning, specially to most women with that over masculine, overflowing testrostrone attitude of his and his typical walk with a swagger makes certain women feel week in the knees.
Abhishek though has a smaller role.. but doesn't diasppoint. Viviek (i guess thats how he spells it) could have done a little better with the same company attitude being copy pasted.
Rohit, shabbir, Tussher (or whatever the spelling is) have done a fair job. Shetty was at his best cop performance and Salmans brother should take body building as a profession than acting. Amitabh bachchan has a role... or does he? but i guess the big guy does a good job even at that little role he had in the movie as well...
He is the Big B... and he proves it again and again.
Overall a nice movie... lot of guns... lot of attitude... should watch once...
