Sandeep Mohan's HDV Short Film "Bomber Briefs"

A new short film from India finally breaks the taboo and asks the controversial question: "What role does a persons' sexual confidence play in the creation of a Suicide Bomber?"

"Bomber Briefs", a 38 minute HDV short film tells the story of such a Suicide Bomber who has serious complexes about his lovemaking prowess.

It is written and directed by Sandeep Mohan, a former Assistant to Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Despite its uncoventional take on Suicide Bombing, this 38 minute HDV short film has been praised by those who have seen it at select previews.

Shot guerilla style in and around the Arambol Beach in Goa, the short film has an interesting take on how to fight the war on terror.

All those who enjoy offbeat shorts will find something to take home, and get excited, after watching this phenomenally low budget, yet exciting short.

If this is what the makers of this film can do for Rs.48,000/-, wonder what they can do if they were backed with more money.
