Directed by Kartik Singh, short film Black Briefcase stars TV anchor and actor Maniesh Paul. The movie is about 16 minutes long and is about a radicalised man played by Manish Paul who plans to place an improvised explosive device (IED) in a crowded Delhi market.

The terrorist is haunted by what his mother once told him – “Son, there are two kinds of people in the world: good and bad. It is up to you to decide what you want to be.” The clip has very few dialogues, and the plot is engrossing. Paul’s character does not have a single line in the whole movie. In just a flashback, the terrorist is instructed as to what he should do by his master and the way Mumbai is burning and the way it is Delhi’s turn to burn now.

As soon as the clip begins, the film deals with the question as to whether terrorists on their way to murder hundreds or thousands of people get afflicted by self-doubt. The film asked question of they too far gone? Have their poisonous ideologies turned them into something that is human only by appearance? Or there is still a mite of humanity inside them?

The film talks about the most hardened terrorists who can be assaulted by conscience – if they feel connected or have something to hold on to. In this case, Maniesh Paul’s character has a nightmare in which his IED has already done the task and he looks at a mother telling her son the same thing his mother told him. She looks accusingly at the terrorist, screaming that he has chosen the wrong option, he is startled and alarmed and rushes back to the market to defuse the bomb. Will he be able to do it?

This short film comes with a simple message, it is made on a budget.
