• ‘Shootout at Wadala’ revels in its violence, yet sadly all the bloodshed leaves you unaffected and cold. I’m going with two out of five.

    The dialogue, smutty and excessive, is poured heavily upon everything. Not as much bang for my buck as I would have liked.

  • Shootout At Wadala fails on all counts

  • The film is generally entertaining without attaining the sort of innate quality that could attract favourable comparisons with Ram Gopal Varma’s Satya and Company or Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Parinda. But that could hardly be a reason to write off the film.

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

  • Shootout At Wadala is an ingeniously made entertainer. Sanjay Gupta creates a well balanced venture which is beseeching for its crime thriller premise. John Abraham captivates in his charismatic role brimming with vicious grandeur. I am going with a 3.5/5 for this one. This one is a must watch adrenalin incurring, electrifying and at places a spine chilling action film.

    On the whole, SHOOTOUT AT WADALA is a fire-brand, paisa vasool entertainer. Brutal and electrifying, it is one of those theatre-going experiences that has a plot, is packaged well and has content [drama, action, dialogue, songs, performances] that works big time with the avid moviegoer. Sanjay Gupta delivers a solid punch!
