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.

Trivia

A dialogue that Sanjay Dutt's character was to deliver to Amitabh Bachchan's character. The words he needed to deliver were "Chutiya" meaning from the vagina, this is a slang hindi word. Out of respect for Bachchan, Dutt was unable to deliver this dialogue despite being encouraged by Bachchan. After a few unsuccessful attempts the dialogue was changed. See more »

Quotes

Dhingra: [interrogating the cops involved in the shootout] You mean all the charges against the ATS - lockup tortures, public shootouts, encounter killings - are all lies?
Javed Shaikh: The truth is not something that you read about on some piece of paper. The truth is something that you find out on the streets of Bombay.

A very good movie with an excellent star-cast...
27 May 2007 | by bhatia-varunSee all my reviews

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...
