Excellent, Fantastic and Superb!
An amazing film that is based on true rumours although most films that are based on actual events are crap. Shootout at Lokhandwala was so well written & directed and had riveting performances from a first-rate cast, every actor did a fantastic job even Amitabh & Abhishek Bachchan in their special appearances.
I never heard about the incident before and I don't know if it's true or not but the film is made so dark & sinister that gives the tensive mood; also it is emotionally & psychologically thrilling. The whole movie is charged with pulse pounding suspense and seems like it's really happening.
A Sanjay Gupta film but the director is Apoorva Lakhia the one who made Ek Ajnabee which was also good that's why I wanted to watch the movie because both of them are terrific filmmakers and the title is eye catching.
Overall it is just great how they managed to make a film on a very simple story about five criminals in a flat surrounded by hundreds of policemen. Just a few more words about the cast:
AMITABH BACHCHAN: Simply the number 1 in Bollywood.
SANJAY DUTT: One of my favorite actors.
SUNIEL SHETTY: No matter what role he doe's action or romantic it will suit him.
ARBAAZ KHAN: Good actor but hardly appears in any film.
VIVEIK OBEROI: Did really well as a bad guy after Company.
TUSSHAR KAPOOR: Good to see him in action after so many romantic roles.
DIA MIRZA: Soooooooooo beautiful that I don't need to say anything else about her.
NEHA DHUPIA: Her best performance will always be in Qayamat, but looks sweet in this film rather than her Julie and Sheesha role.
ABHISHEK BACHCHAN: Came for 2mins but made a mark.
Rating: 5 / 5
