Sometimes such terrific storms take place in the life of a man that the entire structure of his life is changed. Such a storm came in the life of MOHAN also. Inspite of several efforts, he could not save the life of his beloved Mother for want of a few rupees. He tired his utmost but when there was no way out, he committed a crime just to save his mother. But then one crime led to another and with the passage of time, from MOHAN he became MOUNTO- a professional killer.


Some enemy agents were trying to create a chaos in India by manipulating hungers, strikes, riots etc, and thus make India a weak Nation and then have a controlling power over India. C.B.I. Chief wanted a man who can mix up with them and work for him. When this proposal came before Mounto, he refused to become a scape-goat. When this proposal came before Mounto, he refused to become a scape-goat. When his mother came to know about this, she got perturbed and she awakened Munto and persuaded him even to die for the sake of the Nation, if necessary.


But the enemies turned out to be more clever. They involved Mounto in two murders and Mounto was arrested and was behind the bars on the charge of two murders.


Anyhow Mounto escaped from the Jail and as he was on his way to success, he found his own Father as his biggest enemy. Mounto was puzzled. On one side there was his FATHER and on the other hand the  MOTHER LAND.


How Mounto faced all these problems and how he achieved success and for that what sacrifices he had to make will be known to you only when you see the colourful movie “MOUNTO”.
