Right from the Amitabh Bachchan's 'Deewar' days till the recent ones like 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai', Mumbai based gangster films have managed to keep its audiences interest indulged in these films. These real life villains became immortal screen heroe

Shootout At Lokhandwala’, the story unfolds in flashback as our protagonist (John Abraham) reveals how Manohar Arjun Surve became Manya Surve. The sketchy characterization however evokes neither compassion nor repulsion. Whether it was Raghu (Sanjay Dutt)

gangster films are slippery territory and Shootout at Wadala becomes more mindless and trite than fun.

Balaji and Sanjay Gupta on screen shoot out about the first encounter killing of a gangster in Mumbai succeeds in providing John Abraham his finest hours of action on screen and is a crowd pleaser but somehow this ultraviolent mobster flick fails to give any new spin to Sanjay Gupta's credentials as a filmmaker making it somewhat short of befitting booking for its B-town mobster filmsettings like Parinda, Satya, or Balaji's own Once Upon a Time in Mumbai.
