The movie works perfectly as a neo-noir thriller set in a city where nothing goes according to plan. One moment has several scenarios in Monsoon Shootout, but the outcome - smart writing and direction - remains the same throughout.

A cunningly intricate first film from India, Monsoon Shootout combines the best of two worlds - a ferocious Mumbai cops and gangsters drama, and a satisfyingly arty plot that turns in on itself.

The dark, tempestuous mise-en-scene serves to underscore the story's moral confusion. American-born Indian composer-singer Gingger Shankar's tensile score moves fluidly between heart-pounding and lyrical.

The cinematography is top notch and the manner in which the city of Mumbai is invested with a visceral quality is one of the film's high points. Vijay Varma makes a fairly assured debut and Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays evil with a smirk and elan.

There's a strong hint of Bollywood bluntness in the characterisation and the love scenes - but it does paint a vivid picture of the hardships involved in policing a city as wild and untamed as Mumbai.

It's a moody, broody downbeat drama for most of the time, a rainy noir. But along with the plot trickery, there are some unexpected turns.

Vijay Varma outshines everyone in the film. He is the kind of actor who makes you forget his face and believe in his character.

Once, twice, three times a disappointment, Amit Kumar's Monsoon Shootout offers us three variations on the same cataclysmic event in the life of a rookie homicide detective.

Monsoon Shootout shows so much promise early on but very quickly disintegrates.

It amounts to little more than a fecklessly bloodless gimmick thriller.
