Jason Ferguson Orlando Weekly As troubling as it is surprising. [It's also] one of the most realistic representations of the dangerous lawlessness that plagued the city in the early '90s. Rated: 3/5 Jun 7, 2007 Full Review David Chute L.A. Weekly Shootout at Lokhandwala may still be a rush for action fans because it never slows down long enough to become even remotely boring.

Audience Member Entertaining without a doubt. But for a movie that's based on a true event it's hardly feels grounded in reality as it sacrifices realism for picturesque slow-mo shots & unrealistic gun play. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member It fell into that trap that a lot of docudramas do where it wasn't boring, but it could have been more interesting. At least it was up front at the beginning by stating that it was based around rumor, which is more than a lot of docudramas admit to usually. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review walter m In "Shootout at Lockandwala," Justice Dhingra(Amitabh Bachchan) would really like to know from Police Commander Shamsher Khan(Sanjay Dutt) what led to a violent shootout involving his elite unit in an apartment building in Mumbai.(He would also like to know why Shamsher did not arrest Maya(Vivek Oberoi) and his gang while they were singing and dancing.) For Shamsher, the moment of truth came when a trusted subordinate was brutally gunned down in the street. After which, he recruited Javed(Arbaaz Khan) and Kavi(Sunil Shetty) to be on his elite task force. On the surface, "Shootout at Lockandwala" is an entertaining police procedural. Even more importantly is how it implies that rogue units like Shamsher's are little better than the gangs they are intent on stopping. That is before it goes 180 degrees in the opposite direction to say why such shoot first units may be necessary in order to cut crime.(The movie is 'based on true rumors.') Not only is such weak thinking based on shaky causation but it can also lead to civilian deaths and such intense blowback that would make the police department's job that much harder than before. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Vivek Oberoi is brilliant as Maya Bhai. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Taut and tense, SAL is the best crime movie ever made! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A maverick lawman chases Khalistani extremists while handpicked cops like Inspector Kaviraj Patil and Constable Javed Shaikh dare to engage trigger-happy gangsters in a residential locality of Mumbai. And, another maverick from the wrong side of the law, Maya, who along with the likes of psychotic Buwa, make extortion the buzzword in the early '90s, disobeying the big bhai of the underworld and fighting back a posse of policemen for six hours. a good and well made movie.
