Monsoon Shootout is the brain child of director Amit Kumar. He was inspired by Robert Enrico’s Oscar-winning short film An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, and he became interested and fascinated by the idea of human decision making, and how quick can one make a very difficult decision when one’s life is at stake. Thus was born - Monsoon Shootout!
