Shootout at Wadala trailer: John Abraham steals the show as Manya Surve

While John has some of the best dialogues in this Sanjay Gupta action flick, Anil Kapoor, Sonu Sood and Manoj Bajpayee too aren’t left behind as they pack a punch with powerful oneliners

Okay folks, the wait is over and the trailer of the much-anticipated action thriller is out, and looks like you can start working on those whistling skills as you’re going to need them this May when John Abraham unleashes his first villainous Manya Surve avatar in Balaji Motion Pictures Shootout at Wadala (SAW).

It starts with Manya Surve’s voice over revealing his identity and how he changed Mumbai underworld history as he mouths these dialogues in pure bambaiyaa style – Mujh mein khujli thi itihaas badalne ki and Jis din karega Manya Surve chaati pe vaar karega. Based on a true story by popular crime journalist S. Hussain Zaidi, the action drama is about the rise of the underworld gangster Manya Surve and his rivalry with the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar and his brother Shabbir Ibrahim Kaskar. John’s entry is power packed as he runs fearlessly flaunting his beefed up body on the road and intense background score Manya aala dil ke shehar mein apun ka bolbala sung by Mika Singh makes the scene perfect. And he looks every bit the underworld bhai sporting black Pathani kurta and a red teeka on his forehead, which the movie claims he is. Anil Kapoor who plays encounter specialist Isaaque Bagwan holds Shabbir Kaskar aka Manoj Bajpayee’s collar and warns him not to mess with Mumbai police, as he mouths the powerful dialogue in his inimitable style – Police ki goli mein itna loha hai ke ek baar thok di na, toh zindagi bhar tere khoon mein iron ki kami nahi hogi, samjha?

To sum it up, SAW seem like an out-and-out John Abraham film who will surely walk away with all the accolades (and we hope awards too!) next year for his dumdaar act of Manya Surve. But we can’t ignore other actors who also seem to have pulled off stellar performances. The trailer of this underworld drama looks packed with breathtaking action sequences and dumdaar dialogue baazi. So, have a look and tell us, what’s your take on it?
