Written and Directed by Manan Singh Katohora, ‘9 ELEVEN’ portrays the life of 11 people who belong to different walks of life. Though each  individual has achieved a measure of success in their individual lives,  their darkest secrets come out in the open when all of them are given some time for introspection, when they meet each other in a bizarre twist of events. They realize that their lives are inter-woven and this literally shakes up their… peaceful lives. Terrorized to the core by an unknown entity in an unfamiliar place, each individual is petrified and is hesitant to talk or take each other into confidence for one simple reason… The Fear of the Unknown!

The film ‘9-Eleven’ is a fast paced thriller with undertones of terrorism. Terrorism need not be political, “ideologically” generated or  xenophobic. Terrorism can also be a great motivator for conflict resolution or revenge. The question is how does one survive collectively  in meeting this growing phenomenon…….head on?

Kashmera Shah features in an item number composed by ‘Dilwaale Dulhania Le Jaayenge’ fame Music Director Jatin Pandit.

‘9 Eleven’ is represented by Databazaar Media – in North America.
