A rookie cop’s moment of reckoning, to shoot or not to shoot! A breathtaking thriller with Nawazuddin Siddiqi (Lunchbox, Miss Lovely) playing the villain.
Monsoon Shootout explores the impact that one’s choices make on the lives of others. As the raging monsoon lashes Mumbai, the commercial and underworld capital of India, the police struggle to keep up with the gangsters who are ever more emboldened.
Adi, a principled rookie cop as his first assignment on the force, joins an elite, anti-extortion unit of the Mumbai police led by Khan, a cop in the ‘Dirty Harry’ mould. On his first evening on the job, Adi had planned to meet his ex flame Anu and to get back with her, but he misses the date when Khan has set up an ambush for a dreaded gangster.
However, the ambush goes wrong and Adi chases Shiva, a seemingy armed and dangerous criminal into a dead-end alley. Unsure if Shiva is, indeed, the wanted gangster, Adi has a moment of reckoning; whether to shoot or not to shoot.
Whatever his decision is, every decision will take him on a journey that pits him against a system which demands a compromise of his morals. As he lives through the dramatic consequences of each decision, he realizes that every choice has its price… and in doing so, Adi discovers that morality doesn’t come cheap.
