  • As Indian cinema celebrates one hundred years of production this month, this violent film represents its current confused state.

  • Shootout at Wadala is a true-crime gangster epic about an ostensibly charismatic outlaw who's really just a preening monster-something the filmmakers seem to miss.

  • What stops it from becoming the film that it could have is an avalanche of dialogue, the sort of smart-alecky lines that sounded so right in the 70s. In 2013, they seem like a tired device to hang an entire film on.

  • The action is solid, the performances from an incredibly talented and deep cast are wonderful.

  • As with Sanjay Gupta's other work, so galvanizing and alive is his high style that it becomes the film's substance.

Audience Reviews for Shootout At Wadala

  • Jul 14, 2013
    I didn't find the title justified since the shootout at Wadala hardly lasts for 10 minutes. (Besides, they could have gone for a better "shootout" story; I find it hard to thank that there are just a handful of them.) Primarily, it's a story of a teen with a seemingly bright future gone helter-skelter, thanks to his family background & circumstances. But there isn't much of a story to be told. So, either there are fight scenes or some songs forced in. Whatever is told in between doesn't make up for its flaws (I'd not elaborate as they're aplenty). Some action scenes are outstanding, but I'm not a fan of that genre. A slightly better film may have been possible had they focused more on script than relying on promos and item songs.
