This was the first time not only in Indian Cinema but world over that a film was being released without a title. Instead, to describe the unseen, unheard story, all that was used was a symbol, “?” However, the movie had to be released with a written title “Question Mark” due to censorship rules.
It delves into the found footage genre.
In November 2010, a group of friends went to a place to shoot their final year project film but never returned. A few days later, their camera was found. What happened with them was captured in the camera. The film is a compilation of the footage retrieved from it.
