There has been a slew of films based on the subject of terrorism which have released in the recent past. AAMIR, MUMBAI MERI JAAN, CONTRACT, HIJACK, KHUDA KAY LIYE and even MAAN GAYE MUGHAL-E-AZAM - each of them have seen terrorism being a common thread. However, the film which has made the maximum impact and turned out to be the most sensitive of the lot has been A WEDNESDAY. Now with the weekend witnessing serial blasts in Delhi, A WEDNESDAY has turned out to be even more topical.

A WEDNESDAY isn't about blasts per se but reflects the anguish of the common man who fears walking on the street due to terror situation around him. Naseeruddin Shah, who represents the common man, raises this very point as he comes up with a loud cry around this issue. He talks about how terrorists have been in a dominating position over the years and have openly challenged Government to stop them if they dared.

This is what was witnessed around Delhi blasts as well where an email from a terrorist outfit openly proclaimed responsibility for the terror attack and challenged Government in the same tone and language.

Says Anupam Kher, "This is the very reason why A WEDNESDAY works since it jolts a common man; hits his psyche. It makes him feel that in a situation of suppression, he is bound to take extreme measures. People are reacting to the entire premise quite well due to which the film has grown from strength to strength through word of mouth."

The film's release in a weekend preceding the blasts yet again reflects how real and reel life are just a reflection of each other in the current times, especially when the theme deals with terrorism.
