Shootout at Lokhandwala (2007)
(Released: May 25, 2007)
Shamsher S. Khan (Sanjay Dutt) lives a wealthy lifestyle in Bombay along with his wife, Rohini (Neha Dhupia), and school-going daughter, Heena, and is employed as the A.C.P. with Bombay Police. Encouraged by the Police Commissioner he forms the ATS (Anti-Terrorist Squad) during 1990, which is based on U.S.A.'s SWAT team, recruits Inspectors Kaviraj Patil (Suniel Shetty) and Javed Khan (Arbaaz Khan), as well as 27 other fit members from different Police Stations. After Operation Blue Star many Sikh terrorists fled to different parts of Bombay, including Antop Hill, Charkop, and Bhandup, and then began a reign of terror by abducting children from wealthy Sikh families, demanding high ransoms, and instilling fear amongst witnesses who never dared to report them to the Police. Then one day S.I. Abhishek Mhatre (Abhishek Bachchan) witnesses them carrying automatic weapons, challenges them, and is killed. Shamsher asks Mita Mattu (Diya Mirza), a TVN Reporter, to take live shots of himself and his team as they hunt down and kill Baldev Singh and his gang at Antop Hill. This media coverage makes him a hero overnight, and instills considerable fear in the underworld. But Shamsher and his team have a much bigger challenge ahead when two gangsters, Maya Dolas (Vivek Oberoi) and Dilip Buva (Tusshar Kapoor), owing allegiance to their Dubai-based boss, unite to extort money from wealthy businessmen, including Sidhwani and Wadhwani (Shri Vallabh Vyas). Shamsher's efforts to force the duo to come into the open by pressurizing their respective families prove deadly as the duo end up threatening him, his family, as well as Javed's and Kaviraj himself. Shamsher is unable to apprehend the duo as they keep on changing their hideouts, but gets his break when he finds out that the duo, along with their associates, are holed up in Flat No.302, at the A Wing of Swati Building in Lokhwandwala Complex, in Andheri West off of Char Bungla. Hoping to trap and kill them, Shamsher enlists approximately 400 armed police officers - little knowing that his efforts to kill them will be hampered as the gangsters have a hostage, are armed with automatic weapons, including a rocket launcher, and that JCP Tripathi (Akhilendra Mishra), will soon be reaching the site to instruct Shamsher to withdraw the entire operation, amidst allegations that Shamsher himself may have connections with Maya's Dubai-based boss.
