Fresh from critical acclaim in Cannes, director Amit Kumar masterfully blends a dark cop thriller with a Sliding Doors style narrative. It explores the impact that one man’s choices make on the lives of others. As heavy monsoon rains lash the badlands of Mumbai, Adi, a gun toting, rookie cop is out on his first assignment. He faces a life altering decision, whether to shoot, or not to shoot an escaping suspect. His alternative decisions take him on a morality shredding journey, pitting him against a system where the boundaries between the law, crime and self-survival get dangerously blurred. An ensemble cast including Nawazuddin Siddiqui, offer edgy performances in this roller-coaster ride of a movie.
