Storyline

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' mold. 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 seemingly 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... Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

When the writer doesn't know what next..
17 October 2018 | by user-651-726996See all my reviews

The film received it's highlight and sort of promotion with 'to shoot or not to shoot' in the promos. Thus a kind of multi climax to a story depending on one scene but every story though with a lot of same scenes in between, has an abrupt ending and makes you wonder what happened to certain characters in certain versions. It would have been a wonderful film had the writer(s) thought of a proper ending to every versions, unfortunately..

While Vijay in the lead role and every other actor including Nawazuddin perform very well in their role, on the whole this is just an overrated thriller by Kashyap.
