Monsoon Shootout box office collection prediction: Nawazuddin Siddiqui has managed to create a niche for himself and he has carved a unique place in Bollywood. Most of the films he is associated with has a streak of gray shade to it and he does play the hue so well that over the years very few have been able to bring in that level of depth in these type of characters. Siddiqui’s upcoming film Monsoon Shootout is a thriller where he will be seen playing the antagonist. Vijay Varma, the protagonist plays the role of a rookie cop whom we see stuck in a dilemma whether or not to shoot a suspected in criminal on the run. The dilemma has its respective consequences. The trailer was intriguing and is sure to make for a gripping watch as well. But since the film lacks strong star power, it might adversely affect its box office collection. According to reports, the film is set to earn somewhere between 90 lakh to 1 crore. Since its a non-commercial film, the first day earning will presumably be low. If the film has a strong word of mouth review as well as critical acclaim, it might end up doing a fair business.
The trailer was launched by Priyanka Chopra on her Twitter account. She wrote, “Shoot or not to shoot? YOU get to decide what happens next in the trailer for #MonsoonShootout what a cool idea! So glad to see filmmakers innovate & push boundaries of the filmmaking process. “Monsoon Shootout premiered at Cannes Film Festival and won Best Thriller at several festivals internationally. The film is surely an intense one and neo-noir genre being Siddiqui’s forte, we can assume that he has done justice to his role. Though Siddiqui plays the second lead, the success of the film will depend entirely on him.
