Storyline

On July 3, 2003, a junior of Sumit Purohit in college, committed suicide, which shocked the college campus. What saddened the students was the way the college authorities handled the matter, shielding the facts from the media. Amitabh Pandey, a batch-mate of the deceased, witnessed the suicide, capturing all of it on his handy-cam. Pandey came from a well-connected political family. When the college sided with him on this incident, the other half of the story got buried in police records. Finally almost after four years Sumit decided to take a plunge and convince all of those involved about speaking it out and to share it with others. This film is not just about someone committing suicide and another person filming it. It is about our obsession to such images. It is about increasing voyeuristic tendency of human mind and how news media is becoming cannibalistic to satisfy this desire of our mind... Written by Anonymous
