Shootout at Wadala should do 100 crores business.
In 2013, there are not many films which have the big budget status. Not many films are going to do business worth 100 crores. Only film Race 2 had done business of more than 100 crores. Himmatwala was a high profile film. But it could not do business of 100 crores.
Shootout at Wadala is other film which has huge hype and grandieur. It had been released on 3rd May, 2013. In the first 2 days it had done business of more than 20 crores. The film had been directed by Sanjay Gupta. It had been a sequel to the film Shootout at Lokhundwala. The film had been produced by Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, Sanjay Gupta and Anuradha Gupta. The music had been composed by Anu Malik, Mustafa Zahid, Anand Raj Anand, Nadeem Saifi and Anjaan Meet.
The film is based on the literature of Hussain Zaidi titled “Dongri to Dubai.” In the film John Abraham was a law-abiding citizen and good student. But his brother was involved in underworld activities. When he brought Kangana Ranaut to meet his mother, the gangstars attacked his brother, he tried to save him. His brother killed one of the gangstars.
The police office instead of framing the charge of section 302 IPC only against his brother, also framed it against him. He got more than 78% marks, but had to get life imprisonment. The police officer was bribed by Ranjit and his anti-social group.
John Abraham met Tushar Kapoor in the jail and got training for body building from another prisoner in the jail. He fought against other men in the jail.
Mahesh Manjarekhar and other police officers built a team of Sonu Sood and his brother Manoj Bajpai. They killed the underworld gangs whom the police could not kill with their uniform. Anil Kapoor resumed duty in his jurisdiction and started encountering the underworld mafias.
John Abraham got out of the jail and initially went to Manoj Bajpai with Tushar Kapoor to work under him. When he raised his voice against Sonu Sood, Manoj Bajpai slapped him. From that time, John Abraham built his own “bhai-gang” with Tushar Kapoor and others.
He used the rivals of Manoj Bajpai to kill him. Then Anil Kapoor took the details of John Abraham from Kangana Ranaut and killed him at an encounter at Wadala.
The film was full of action. There were a number of item songs like “bubli badmash hai” on Priyanka Chopra, “Laila” by Sunny Leone, and “aala re aala” by Sophie Choudhury. But the performances of John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Manoj Bajpai and Sonu Sood were excellent. The killing of John Abraham at the hands of Anil Kapoor may not be liked by many audience, as he wanted to surrender. Instead of taking him to the prison, Anil Kapoor shot him to death.
2013 can be the year of John Abraham, his first film Race 2 did more than 100 crores business. Shootout at Wadala is definitely going to be a blockbuster. No films of Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan had been released in 2013 till now. So John Abraham is the clear winner at this time. The film was based on real life incident, and showed the weaknesses of the Mumbai Police in combating the underworld. The film has all the potential to cross 100 crores business.
