The teaser for Amit Kumar's Monsoon Shootout, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Neeraj Kabi and Vijay Varma, has finally been released.

The film, produced by Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment, was premiered at the Cannes film festival in 2013, but its release in India has long been delayed.

The makers of the film have released the first teaser of the film today.

The 38 seconds video encapsulates the film's story unraveling over one stormy night. The three main protagonists of the story, the veteran cop Khan (played by Neeraj Kabi), the rookie Adi (Vijay Verma) and the ruthless serial killer Shiva (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) find themselves face to face as the storm descends on Mumbai city. The consequences of Adi's decision determines the future of the three lives. 

The teaser captures the noirish feel of the film, with its perfect depiction of a rainy, watery city.
