In 1992, Bombay witnessed the famous Shootout At Lokhandwala. This police encounter was telecast live by the BBC and covered extensively by the media worldwide. The people of India had by then, become immune to this brutal method of justice meted out by the Bombay police. Till date more than 820 encounters have been recorded in the files of the Bombay Police. But where and how did it all begin? Inspired by some anecdotes in S. Hussain Zaidi's best-seller 'Dongri To Dubai', 'Shootout at Wadala' chronicles the first-ever recorded encounter by the Bombay Police. A hybrid of fact and fiction, the action-packed drama outlines the rampant gang wars in Bombay, culminating in a three-way epic faceoff between the dreaded gangster Dilawar Imtiaz Haskar, the notorious yet charismatic gangster Manya Surve, and Inspector Afaaque Baagran.
