Why I like... Shootout at Lokhandwala

It was true to life and emotionally powerful. The best part of the film was that the filmmaker didn’t try to take sides. It was shot objectively. So, there are actually times in the film you feel sorry for the bad guys, and sometimes, the cops looked like the bad guys. They just told a story. In a world where objectivity is thrown out of the window, this was a breath of fresh air. Vivek Oberoi was really good, Sanjay Dutt is a dude though Tusshar Kapoor was quite sad and should never try to play a gangster again. They didn’t break into songs anytime and the girls didn’t seem forced into the film, even for an item number. Visually too, it was interesting. The film was grainy and brown and that did lend a lot to bring out the realism and the grime. They based it on a real life situation and they made it well. Vivek Oberoi redeemed himself after a whole line of crappy films that started just after Company.
