Production Notes
A week before the inauguration of the World Military Games that were to be held in Hyderabad in 2008, I got an urgent request to make a eye opener for the event. This simple short film that had friendship as its theme was planned in two days, shot in a day and was edited in the next two days - just in time for the inauguration of the games. A real cliff hanger!
1. Inaugural ceremony of the World Military Games, 2008
