One-shot film 'Six Hours With Terrorists' to hit screens in March

MUMBAI: Debutant directors come out with new ideas never tried before. A few years ago in 2008, director Wilson Louis had canned a three-minute song in one shot.

Going further, young filmmaker Karan Kashyap has shot a film of two hours and seventeen minutes in one shot on a single camera. The film, Six Hours With Terrorists, is expected to hit the silver screen next month.

The makers of the film are planning to send the entry to the Guinness Book of World Records. “It was not easy for me and my team to achieve this task,” Kashyap says. “I approached several producers and actors with my script and tried to convince them to make a movie, but in vain. Finally, Star Smile Productions liked my concept and the project took off,‘ he adds. 

Producer Arun Deodhar is of the view that such concepts take a great deal of hard work. “I am extremely happy by the outcome of the project and must say that all the efforts put in by these young people have yielded fruits. We intend to promote out-of-the-box ideas like these through movies and motivate young talent of the country,” he avers.

Talking of the film, Kashayp unfolds the outline. The film revolves around Rehman who is held hostage by three terrorists. “We have used several references from the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai in terms of the costumes and how three terrorists had held the residents of Nariman House as hostage during the period,” Kashyap reveals.

A crew of more than 40 people, including six actors, was literally locked up in a bungalow on the outskirts of Mumbai. They rehearsed their roles for 54 days before the final shot was canned.

So far, there have been two such ‘one shot‘ movies - Russian Arc, the duration of which was one hour and 38 minutes, and PVC 1 which was 85-minute long.
