Director's Statement

This project was undertaken as a yearly activity of IIMACTS, the Dramatics Club of IIMA. Kill, written by Mr. Alex Broun (, was the first script we considered and stuck to it when we couldn’t come up with any better script. The toughest part of the entire experience was getting hold of a proper audio recording device and appropriate connecting wires as we did not want to dub for the movie. This led to a lot of retakes and a few reshoots as the connecting wires we got turned faulty a number of times, but saved us the hassles involved with dubbing. The easiest part was working with the actors. Both of them understood the script very well and did exactly what was expected from them.
