Film on Rajiv Gandhi's assassins ready

NDTV: "A movie director in Bangalore has recreated the landmark investigation and eventual capture of kingpin Sivarasan behind former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's assassination. The movie took seven years to research and deals with the last 20 days when Sivarasan and his six Liberation of Tamil Tigers Eelam (LTTE) accomplices were holed up in a house in Konanakunte, just outside Bangalore.

The film is to be released in Kannada and Tamil then eventually in Hindi, Telugu and English. The film highlights investigations of the Special Investigative Team (SIT) in collaboration with the National Security Guard (NSG) and the city police.

It culminates in a shootout when One-Eyed Jack, as Sivarasan was known, shot himself in the head while his accomplices swallowed cyanide pills. The movie releases on July 7."
