Mini Review – Shootout At Wadala
After the super successful stories of Bhais and Don in Shootout at Lokhandwala & Once upon a time in Mumbai , the era is back on the screen with Shootout at Wadala with lots of jumps in the screenplay,plot main loopholes,bad music and John shouting in every scene and lots of unnecessary galliya (Maa ki.. Bhen ki..etc. etc) So, the story is an adaptation from the book Dongri to Dubai by Hussain Zaida (do read it once, ekdum mast hai), But the screenplay is weak and has lots of jumps , making it more boring (Suddenly kahi se koi bhi ata hai aur kuch bhi karta hai ☹ ) Direction by Sanjay Gupta is good but unnecessary people, songs and plots ne vaat laga di. Another horrible part was the music . Except Babli Badmaash hai , every other song sucks . (Fuck, if you don’t believe me, listen to Maniya Sun re.. I mean WTF, aisa koi gana banata hai.. Anu Malik ko ek tapli do yaar ) .
Another So called Highlight of the Movie – the Sunny Leone song “Laila”, in which Laila doesn’t have any lines to sing (all she is shown showing her cleavage and legs.. Bitch please, we have seen enough of her in her previous movies.. you know what I mean 😛 ) In performance, John has really put in his great hard work for the role and it shows on the screen. Apna Jhakas Anil Kapoor is very good along with Ronit Roy and Mahesh Manjrekar . Manoj Bajpayee is good , Sonu Sood is decent. Tushar is bad (he is back to his normal acting, No comparison to Shootout at Lokhandwala here). Kangana is bad too ( I still don’t understand why was she there in the movie??? ). One good thing about the movie is the dialogues, some of them are excellent like the ones in once upon a time , but only problem was that, everyone here wanted a dialogue, isliye khichdi ho gaya.
So overall, watch it only if you have free time and donno what to do with yourself.
2 stars from me only for Dialogues and John & Anil Kapoor ka efforts
(P.S. – You should see the making out wala scenes, they are hilarious ..lolz!!! )
