2008 - A year worth feeling sorry about, series of blasts in different cities, killing people. We also saw the terror attacks in Mumbai..which depressed the heart more...These events affected the muslim community, who were treated as terrorists. Somehow it affected me a lot, so the nift delhi team, decided to dedicate all our songs to the victims at the inter college event in Hyderabad.
Taking these as my inspiration, decided to make a movie. However there was no intentions of showing any kind of partiality towards any community.. ending was thought in a different way but because of lack of time, the present ending seems little lame... which means i am not satisfied with this movie...
Shoot began in January, my friend Siddhartha plays the lead role, of a poor student who eventually turns into a terrorist... witnessing the killings and the blasts in all the major cities creates a deep hatred inside his heart, forcing him to become a weapon of terror. The short film is not about terrorism but about the state of mind... how small things can change life...
The reason of such an abrupt ending was the spectrum 09, shortage of time n i was part of the organizing team.. however there were very less entries and that’s the reason I once again won 1st prize (Hatrick-3times in a row)
