Fictionalised rendering of Kasab drama online

MUMBAI: It’s been over three years since the 26/11 attacks in which all the nine terrorists except Mohammed Ajmal Kasab were gunned down. While the inhabitants of Mumbai have almost forgotten and gone back to their routines, the Indian judiciary and government are still pondering what to do with the sole surviving terrorist.

Produced by Sohrab Irani, director and film educationist Oovazi Irani has made a ten minute-long film The K File, based on a fictional rendering of one of India‘s biggest contemporary problems.

The film’s protagonist goes by the name of Asab. This is because "the lawyer asked us to call him Asab as the text is separate from the film itself. There might still be some contempt involved," explained writer Farrukh Dhondy.

The ten-minute short begins with a home minister (played by Gujarati theater actor and model Tushar Ishwar) wanting to hang terrorist Asab (played by Sanjay Nath, who has acted in films like Paathshala and Chance Pe Dance among others) for the terror attacks in the city.

But the minister has to deal with a political dilemma. He knows that his decision to hang the terrorist would invite a lot of controversy and affect his Muslim vote bank. Thus for months, he grapples with himself for a solution and eventually finds a way to deal with Asab’s case.

The film braves to find a solution to a real life situation by merging fact with fiction and the director is successful to an extent. At the end, the film echoes thoughts of all those awaiting the rightful punishment for Kasab for his horrific act.

The film has been recently released online.
