Documentary on Chandrashekhar Prasad JNU : Ek Minute Ka Maun : A Moment's Silence

Synopsis:  Late afternoon in Siwan. A small town in the Indian state of Bihar. A young leader, after already having addressed four street corner meetings, is on his way to JP Chowk to address another, quite unmindful of his apparently impossible dreams in a very cynical present. He is sighted by some associates of a local Member of Parliament, a notorious mafia Don. The young leader is Chandrashekhar. Seconds later he is killed on March 31, 1997.

The news spreads. Reaches Jawaharlal Nehru university in Delhi. The premier institute of whose students’ union Chandrashekhar was twice the president. There is an anger, a fury which refuses to subside…

This is what ‘Ek Minute Ka Maun’ sets to establish. Piecing together scenes from the agitation and combining with it the portrait of Chandrashekhar. An unwitting pawn, but a willing activist, caught in the spidery web of criminal – political nexus.

In times when guilty still roam at large, unpunished, friends of Chandrashekhar found it befitting to bring this film together.
