Audience Reviews for Shootout at Lokhandwala
In "Shootout at Lockandwala," Justice Dhingra(Amitabh Bachchan) would really like to know from Police Commander Shamsher Khan(Sanjay Dutt) what led to a violent shootout involving his elite unit in an apartment building in Mumbai.(He would also like to know why Shamsher did not arrest Maya(Vivek Oberoi) and his gang while they were singing and dancing.) For Shamsher, the moment of truth came when a trusted subordinate was brutally gunned down in the street. After which, he recruited Javed(Arbaaz Khan) and Kavi(Sunil Shetty) to be on his elite task force.
On the surface, "Shootout at Lockandwala" is an entertaining police procedural. Even more importantly is how it implies that rogue units like Shamsher's are little better than the gangs they are intent on stopping. That is before it goes 180 degrees in the opposite direction to say why such shoot first units may be necessary in order to cut crime.(The movie is 'based on true rumors.') Not only is such weak thinking based on shaky causation but it can also lead to civilian deaths and such intense blowback that would make the police department's job that much harder than before.
