ARSALA QURESHI and SABRINA LOUIS

In their debut English film THE UNFORGETTABLE, co-directors Arsala Qureishi and Sabrina Louis aren't shying away from calling a spade a spade. They are happy to disclose that the film is based on true events that happened around them with the film's protagonists based on some real life characters. They go one step ahead and mince no words in declaring that they have based their female protagonist on a girl they knew who was a ruthless character in real life.

''What you would see in the movie though is just a sketch of what this girl was in real life'', remembers Arsala Quereishi, ''In fact the real happenings in the life of this girl and her man were so much more blatant and unacceptable. We had to mellow it all down to a huge extent and cut short the ruthlessness that she brought with her in real life.''

''If I had a free hand and not much worries about bringing the story on the big screen, I would have had even lesser mercy in the characterization of the female protagonist of our film'', Sabrina Louis takes off here, ''I don't think we could even come close to such a character for our film. If we would have done that, the film would have become too dark and morbid. This is why we played the two characters quite evenly and in a subtle way put forth the extent that they would go to.''

''When I was writing the story, I could feel the pain that this guy must have been going through'', says Arsala, ''In fact it took me two years to get my final draft of the script in place. I think there were such extreme emotions that these two people were going through that we could have never ever known that such feelings do exist.''
