Monsoon Shootout Movie Review
Director: Amit Kumar
Cast: Vijay Varma, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Neeraj Kabi, Tannishtha Chatterjee
A spine-chiller that guarantees to investigate social and moralistic questions can be a gripping one, however, Monsoon Shootout fails to engage in regardless of being supported by powerhouse talents such as Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Neeraj Kabi, Vijay Varma and Tannishtha Chatterjee.
The film is the story of a cop looked with the quandary of whether he should shoot an accused or not, on the first day of his job. The interactive trailer gave us an essence of the story — it investigates all the available choices.
The story is of Adi (Vijay Varma), who is being conveyed on his first criminal case, headed by an inspector Khan (Neeraj Kabi) who has confidence in the no-guardianship belief system. As the events unfurl, Adi gets himself vis-à-vis with Shiva, the suspect (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Right in the first place, his mom helps him to remember a lesson his dad used to preach – there are three approaches to follow up on a thing-right, wrong and the in the middle of one, and that sets the tone of the scenes to take after and the words reverberate in Adi’s mind long after his dad is no more.
Director Amit explores all three options — Adi shooting Shiva, letting him escape, and in the third, shooting the accused in the knee, as the middle path.
The fine camerawork by Rajeev Ravi catches the background of the scandalous Mumbai storm inside and out and makes it an exciting character in itself. As the film swings back to the choosing minute thrice in its course, the storm plays like an allegory to the hazy contemplations, situation and the vulnerability in Adi’s psyche.
Vijay as a rookie cop is mostly convincing except for some parts wherein both Nawazuddin and Neeraj outshine him. A specific genuineness in his execution, be that as it may, causes him stand his ground. Contrary to expectations, Nawazuddin’s character is optional to Vijay’s Adi and keeping in mind that he is noteworthy in parts, the film doesn’t show signs of improvement of him. Neeraj demonstrates his artfulness and conveys a solid execution all through. While Tannishtha (Shiva’s better half) and Geetanjali (Adi’s adoration intrigue) both have just little parts in the film, Sreejita De’s part of Shiva’s fancy woman have a critical turn in the results of the differed depictions.
Try not to equivocate or duck for cover. Walk directly into the way of this smoothly arranged shootout. You will love the choice.
We give Monsoon Shoutout 2.5 stars.
