John Abraham, Kangna Ranaut, Anil Kapoor, Tusshar Kapoor New Bollywood film Shootout At Wadala Movie Review:
If you want to make a gangster film you have a ready template in Bollywood which to follow. Pick up a real mafia from the past, throw in as many real life characters around it as possible, convolute the narrative with non-linear approach with each back and forth bring out a new character, stuff at least two-three item songs and voila! You have a gangster movie. What’s a real pity is watching Sanjay Gupta, who has excelled in gangster films in the past, himself taking the easy route with his latest Shootout At Wadala.


The movie Shoot At Wadala is an action crime drama and a prequel to 2007 hit film Shootout at Lokhandwala. Based on the life of the 80s’ gangster Manya Surve, Shootout At Wadala dramatises the first-ever registered encounter of gangster Surve, by the Mumbai Police.The movie will see John Abraham, playing Surve’s role onscreen. The story revolves around Surve aka John getting life term imprisonment for a crime that was not committed by him. Manya, along with his fellow prisoner Sheikh Munir (Tusshar), escapes from jail and forms his own gang and challenges the diggis of underworld Dilawar Imtiyaz Haskar (Sonu Sood) and his brother Zubair Imtiyaz Haskar (Manoj Bajpayee).With the increasing power, Manya becomes a threat to the police ACP Ishaque Bagwan (Anil Kapoor). Now both Dilawar and Zubair wants to kill Manya; ACP Ishaque Bagwan shares the same intention. Shootout At Wadala is definitely an honest attempt that chronicles Manya’s eccentric life from a righteous simpleton to a bloodcurdling monster.

Artists Performance:

Actors Anil Kapoor, Ronit Roy, Mahesh Manjrekar, Manoj Bajpayee and Sonu Sood put together brilliant performance especially Anil Kapoor who even at his age easily performs some of the most difficult chase and stunt sequences. John Abraham portrays his grittiest character till now but fails to hold together the narrative. Tusshar surprisingly plays his part well and can easily be considered better than John. Jr. Shakti Kapoor, Siddhant is impressive in his debut. Kangna Ranaut plays a typical part which she may have in the past too.

Technical and Other Departments:

Music is Average. Cinematography and Picturisation are good. screenplay is poor. Too Much of Music Director’s is effected the music and the backgroung scores and in the songs.

Movie Analysis:

Sanjay Gupta who’s first part of the Shootout franchise, Shootout At Lokhandwala, was a sweeper hit, turns his second into such a depressing display of cliched elements from Bollywood. The film is replete with puerile acting, convenient narrative, pointless dialoguebaazi and predictable story.

It’s not always easy to adapt from a book and based on Dongri To Dubai, the film suffers from the same problem. The characters and episodes which would’ve otherwise grown on a reader get dealt with very haphazardly and hence don’t leave any impact on the audience.

To add to the agonizingly long film of a run time of 150 minutes, there are multiple song sequences, three item numbers at that, which literally leave you red on your face.

Final View:

Overall, Shootout At Wadala lacks innovation and courtesy the long run time and jarring songs ends up disappointing the audience.
