      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express What stops it from becoming the film that it could have is an avalanche of dialogue, the sort of smart-alecky lines that sounded so right in the 70s. In 2013, they seem like a tired device to hang an entire film on. Rated: 2/5 Mar 20, 2019 Full Review Anil Sinanan Time Out As Indian cinema celebrates one hundred years of production this month, this violent film represents its current confused state. Rated: 2/5 Oct 24, 2017 Full Review Simon Abrams Village Voice Shootout at Wadala is a true-crime gangster epic about an ostensibly charismatic outlaw who's really just a preening monster-something the filmmakers seem to miss. May 7, 2013 Full Review Anna M.M. Vetticad annavetticadgoes2themovies There is much to recommend in SAW: moving story, sharp dialogues (when not gender prejudiced), neat camerawork and production design, slick action. Rated: 3/5 Jan 15, 2023 Full Review J Hurtado ScreenAnarchy The action is solid, the performances from an incredibly talented and deep cast are wonderful. Nov 6, 2017 Full Review Michael Dequina As with Sanjay Gupta's other work, so galvanizing and alive is his high style that it becomes the film's substance. Rated: 3/4 Aug 28, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Nothing like Sanjay Gupta's Shootout At Lokhandwala. certain performances were okay but overall film was way too loud. Background score was jarring while songs didn't serve any purpose. In spite of having style all over it film is very very dramatic version of book "From Dongri To Dubai". Disappointed. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member would have been better with a bit more story, and less arghhh Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Hats off for the 70s illusions created. Otherwise I remember being bored to death with the whole movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Being a sequence of 'Shootout At Lokhandwala', the movie expectantly caters to the tug-o-war between the police and Mumbai underworld and the elements of the underworld themselves. However, the prequel caters to the time period when Dawood was an already established underworld power figure, whereas the sequel depicts the era before the emergence of Dawood aka Dilawar as the power figure. It caters to the time period, when the Mumbai police actually started bending the rulebook (read encounters). It seems that not many facts or incidents are recorded of that time period, or maybe there was less drama in the lifestyle of a single person/gang, so the storyline comprises of the activities of different gangs and the whole movie is a flashback as a story exchange between the protagonist/criminal Manya Surve (John Abraham) and the ACP (Anil Kapoor) on their way to the hospital after the criminal had been mercilessly trapped and encountered but still could live enough to tell his tale. One interesting study you find is the contrast in the lifestyle of different ganglords. This is meaning to say that, they enjoyed almost the same kind of money, power and clout, but chose to live differently as per their lineage and/or preference. Mastans inspite of their age old clout preferred to stay and dress in their old ways, while the Haskars used to dress fashionably and drive swank cars. Common factor amongst them was respect for their religion and flashy gold accessories. Actingwise, all have done good job. But Manoj Bajpai, in his small role still stands out. So does Sonu Sood in his passive acting. John has given it all for this role - be it body building, appearing ferocious, being uninhibited with the heroine as well as the item girl, depicting silent emotional pain etc. Coming from John, being uninhibited is a big step, as usually he appears very cautious around his heroines. Anil Kapoor appears as an honest and driven cop, but due to his age and/or physique you find it rather unconvincing that in a dual he can overpower someone like John or even someone less muscular than John. Out of other two cops, you feel as doubtful for Mahesh Manjrekar but not Ronit Roy. Kangana has beautifully dressed as ladies of that era. In fact in the second half of the movie, she resembles a lot of Rekha and carries the diva look with aplomb. She has managed to act natural and this should be applauded. Like Sachin of yesteryears, Tusshar simply cannot look anything other than a 'decent and nice young boy'. Thus in spite of his hard work, considering him for a gangster role (Munir) seems rather questionable. Soni Razdan and Akbar Khan in their comeback roles appear just ok. It's refreshing to see Jackie Shroff in a powerful and short guest appearance. Looking at Anil and him in the same frame, for a second you are instantly reminded of 'Parinda'. There are three absolutely unnecessary item songs. Each of them must have costed the producers a bomb. So, maybe they have their purpose and a section of the audience may go to the theatres to justify that purpose. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Yet another Gangster movie .. With power-pack dialogues ..Yet I felt.. certain scenes are Left incomplete..
