About Monkey Man

The action thriller follows the journey of a young man, portrayed by Dev Patel, who embarks on a mission to seek justice for his mother's death, caused by corrupt leaders. However, his quest for vengeance takes an unexpected turn as he becomes a champion for the oppressed and powerless, transforming into the titular Monkey Man. The film is inspired by Indian mythology, particularly Lord Hanuman.

Alongside Dev, the film features Sikandar Kher, Sharlto Copley, Sobhita Dhulipala, Makarand Deshpande, Ashwini Kalsekar, and others. Monkey Man premiered at the SXSW and received a standing ovation, prompting Dev Patel to break into tears.

After its release, Sobhita, who plays a sex worker named Sita in the film, also lauded Dev for his directorial debut. She shared a picture from the film's premiere, in which she's posing with Dev. Sobhita looked stunning in a beautiful white outfit, while Dev appeared stylish in a suit. “So much love for this fellow right here. Look what you made, kid (smile emoji). Monkey Man out now, in theaters worldwide,” she wrote.

Monkey Man is slated to release soon in India.
