Shootout At Wadala

Meena Iyer, TNN, May 2, 2013, 06.24PM IST

Critic's Rating:  ****
Cast: Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Kangana Ranaut, Manoj Bajpayee, Sonu Sood and Tusshar Kapoor
Direction: Sanjay Gupta
Genre: Crime
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Story: A conscientious college student is wrongly accused of murder. Post his jail break, he attempts to take over the Mumbai mafia. Does he succeed? Or does he succumb to the law?

Movie Review: Sanjay Gupta's Shootout At Wadala largely draws inspiration from journalist-author S Hussain Zaidi's Dongri to Dubai-6 decades of the Mumbai mafia. But the maker takes the cinematic liberty of changing the material at hand to make his film and characters more engaging. Or should we say largely entertaining.

15 minutes into the film you know Gupta means business as knives gash, guns explode, blood flows, actors mouth expletives galore and items girl gyrate shamelessly.

SAW has two protagonists'Manya Surve( John Abraham) a bright college student from the 70s, who finds himself inexorably drawn into a vortex of crime. The other leading man is Aafaque Bagraan(Anil Kapoor) a trigger-happy cop who wants to clean up the streets of the maximum city.

As the police and the criminals play the regular usual cat and mouse game; the screenplay introduces the viewer to endless gangsters and their girls. There's Vidya( Kangana Ranaut), Manya's love-interest, Sheikh Munir(Tusshar Kapoor), Gyanchod (Siddhanth Kapoor) and a couple of more hoodlums who are his henchmen. And you have their deadly opponents'the Haksar brothers, Zubair ( Manoj Bajpayee) and Dilawar(Sonu Sood). Manya and Zubair wrest to take over the Mumbai mafia. Quite naturally the opposing gangs bay for one another's blood. And in true Bollywood style, the slaying is interrupted only with the swaying; so you have three item songs lined up. The first item has adult star, Sunny Leone, whose song'Laila teri Le Legi is alone worth the price of a ticket. This Canadian-Indian girl is such an object of desire; she makes other dance girls pale in comparison.

The other selling point of the film is Milap Zaveri's dialogue. Many of the lines are claptraps. But be warned, there's a liberal peppering of filthy lingo that will make you cringe. The performances are largely A-grade. Manoj tops the list. And though he's a Mafioso, his demeanour will get the maidens to melt. Sonu who plays Dilawar, succeeds in spreading menace and speaks eloquently with his eyes.

John is the one with the maximum screen time. From vulnerable to invincible, from a testosterone wonder to a believable actor, Manya is his career's best act. Tusshar is earnest and effective. Kangana may not have the item song benefit but she has recall value as the anguished gangster's moll.

Siddhant Kapoor, son of baddie Shakti Kapoor is also a young talent to watch out for.

Anil Kapoor does his encounter specialist act with elan. He's supported ably by Ronit Roy, Mahesh Manjrekar and Jackie Shroff who puts in a guest appearance as the police chief.

SAW ultimately belongs to Gupta, who stays true to the genre and makes a welcome return to the credible lot of Bollywood directors.

Note: You may not like this film if don't have the appetite for blood and gore.

Bollywood review: 'Shootout At Wadala' is John Abraham's grittiest till date

Sanjay Gupta's action thriller about a wounded, divided Bombay of the 1980s is a great watch for all action movie-buffs

By
  • Sneha May Francis
Published Thursday, May 02, 2013

Blazing guns, ear-splitting action stunts, blood-soaked punches, sexy bombshells and macho men screeching till their facial muscles tremble or those running in slow motions, are all ingredients that dress up director Sanjay Gupta's newest bloody battle of the bad boys.

Although, he has (partly) borrowed from the pages of S Hussain Zaidi's 'Dongri to Dubai', Sanjay does spin a gritty tale of deceit, betrayal, revenge and brotherhood to depict the "first-ever encounter" in Bombay.

He even weaves in Bollywood's influence on the baddies, with numerous references to Amitabh Bachchan's "angry young man" image.

Much like his earlier action flicks, even in this one, every shot is luminously textured. This time by celebrated art director Sabu Cyril, who makes the impossible possible making bloodied battles appear pleasing to the eye!

The murky dealings of the big, bad world of the Mumbai mafia has enticed many Bollywood filmmakers, but it's Sanjay, who last sidetracked with the forgettable 'Pankh', who goes on to prove that he has what it takes to pack a punch.

He's also got writer Milap Zaveri to thank for the killer lines that lends a strange, poetic tone to the blind rage. It tips over the edge at times, but it's forgiveable.

However, it's the sluggish edit, which clocks his epic battle at 2-hours-and-30-minutes that punctures the narrative, leaving the gory proceedings of a wounded Bombay of the 1980s long-drawn out. 

It would've worked, considering we've applauded Anurag Kashyap's two-part epic mafia warfare 'Gangs of Wasseypur' that ran into nearly five-hours of reel time. And, that too without any item girls.

Sanjay, however, runs out of visual and creative elements to sketch out the menacing life of Manya Surve, who unlike his immoral peers, was ignored by history.

'Shootout At Wadala' is definitely an honest attempt that chronicles Manya's eccentric life from a righteous simpleton to a bloodcurdling monster.

It was life's circumstances that shakes up Manya, and shoves him from one extreme life to another.

 And, along the way, he collects men who are armed with muscle and brawn, and who turn into his extreme loyalists.

Set over the 1970s and 1980s, the narrative shifts from the present to the past, and recreates his struggles and sacrifices, and his undying desire to rule Bombay.

There was no method to his madness, and he was evidently blinded by his ambition. Yet, there was something extraordinarily affable about him.

Like his earlier movies, Sanjay's still unable to shake away the Hollywood influences, and this one has a scene straight off 'Reservoir Dogs', where the gangsters sit down to chit-chat about life and its curious theories.

 John Abraham gives Manya Surve his all. This is by far his finest, and mostly, flawless act. From the innocence of a college-going student to the majestic fighter he turns into, John shades Manya's eccentricities in matured strokes. From flexing his muscles, to pounding his rivals, he's the desi Hulk in all its glory.

If there's a shortfall, it only appears when he counters Manoj Bajpai's Zubair and Sonu Sood's Dilawar. The lanky brothers, who refuse Manya a place in their gang, are incredibly superlative.

John's cronies Tusshar Kapoor as his faithful second-in-command and Siddanth Kapoor as the crazy Gyanchod are faultless.

The screenplay, however, focus entirely on Manya's trials and tribulations, never allowing us to discover and empathise with his gang.

'Shootout At Wadala' All Set For A Very Good Opening 

By Joginder Tuteja, MovieTalkies.com, 02 May 2013 John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee, Sonu Sood

The moment has arrived. For an industry that was waiting with a bated breadth to see some very good collections at the box office, Shootout at Wadala should be an answer. It can be comfortably stated that the film is all set to take the second biggest start of the year at least, if not the biggest, after Race 2 which had brought in 51 crores during it's opening weekend. The stakes are really high for this mega film and the Sanjay Gupta directed affair can look forward to an opening in the excess of 60% with mass dominated centres, especially at the single screens, doing even better.

The makers have done well to keep some sustained hype for this multi-starrer which has been sold primarily as a John Abraham affair. In the news for a couple of years and seeing some sustained promotion for itself during last six months, the Ekta Kapoor film has been pitched as a biggie which should end the drought when it comes to a big ticket film that indeed ends up putting the box office on fire and gain some  massive moolah. So far the only 100 crore affair has been Race 2 while Special 26 has crossed the 70 crore mark. Now Shootout at Wadala is expected to join the league.
