No baggage needs to be collected in Mumbai and taken thru customs. You can put the liquor in the checked luggage at that point.

Yes There is a rather large duty free store just after immigration you have to walk thru before getting to your luggage.you can easily repack and then go thru customs. Indian customs is not really after liquor so they won't bother you.

Note the duty free stores in India are not really cheap even compared to retail in the U.S. or Europe.
