It may be a bizarre coincidence but events on Wednesday night were a partial reminder of recent Naseeruddin Shah-starrer 'A Wednesday' in which he takes the city hostage for four hours on a Wednesday afternoon leaving the administration jittery and nervous.

Yesterday's events may not be a complete analogy of the gripping one-and-half hour movie, but the moments of fear, nervousness, uncertainty and threat had a striking similarity as groups of fanatic hard-core militants attacked the icons of the city - The Taj hotel, CST railway station, Trident hotel, Cafe Leopold, Colaba, killing over 80 and injuring 275.

The movie, which hit the theatres in September this year.

revolves around events of a Wednesday afternoon when a senior citizen, played by Shah, threatens to blow up Mumbai through hidden bombs which could only be averted in exchange of four terrorists held by police.
