Shootout At Wadala
Gangsters too can look hot. A far cry from the shabby, sinewy, trigger-happy gangsters we see in Bollywood by the dozen, John Abraham makes for a volcanically hot gangster Manya Surve in the first look of director Sanjay Gupta’s film Shootout At Wadala.
The look has a shirtless John Abraham dangling out of a BEST bus and flaunting his rippling muscles, eye-popping abs and biceps that look brawny and bulgy enough to topple the bus over to its side. Okay, we perhaps shot a line there, but such a searing display of brawns hasn’t been seen on screen since the actor heaved a bike and chucked it at the goons in Force.
In Shootout At Wadala, however, John Abraham essays the role of a Maharashtrian character on the wrong side of the law. He plays Manya Surve, who was known as “Bombay ka naya baap” way back in the late seventies and early eighties. He was a dreaded gangster who ruled the Agar Bazaar area of Dadar. His reign was cut short by the Mumbai cops Isaque Bagwan and Raja Tambhat in an encounter outside Wadala College on Jan 11, 1982. Anil Kapoor plays the cop who bumps Surve off.
