About the film
“The terrorist attack on Bombay results in hundreds of deaths including those of the gang of Pakistani terrorists, all except one, Mohammed Kasab, who is captured by the Mumbai police. He is convicted of multiple murders and condemned to hang. This poses a dilemma for the Prime Minister and the Home Minister. Indian politicians rely on vote banks and hanging a Muslim murderer while suspending the sentences of Hindu terrorist murderers would be seen as discrimination against the minority religious group. Hanging the gang of Hindu murderers would set off a backlash of Hindus. In THE K FILE the Prime Minister dumps the dilemma on the shoulders of the Home Minister. The decision is a classic catch 22. How does the Home Minister resolve to solve it? How does the K File close?
Director’s note: Oorvazi Irani
“The K File” is an independent short feature film (9 min 24 sec) which is made with my company’s personal funding having the complete freedom to share my views in creative fiction and reach out. My Producer and dad Sorab Irani, who is the Chairman of my home production company SBI Impresario Pvt. Ltd.( since 1975) deeply believed in the project and made it become a reality. Terrorism remains one of today’s biggest threats to humanity, with this fiction short feature, I attempt to engage, while also entertaining, the audiences and hope to open the doors for an intense reflection and response to the particular dilemma called ‘Kasab’.
The film is conceived as a film made specially for being an Online Release as I do not want it to be limited to a particular space or time or audience and I feel this film needs to reach out and connect with the world at large. The film is free for viewing and the only returns for my Producer and me is the income of the number of views and connecting with the hearts and minds of every Mumbaiite, Indian and human being in this global village.
Scriptwriter: Farrukh Dhondy
The story and screenplay of the film is by Farrukh Dhondy who is a respected author/columnist and the erstwhile commissioning editor of Channel Four TV, London.
