A must match for Indian movie lovers
3 April 2015 | by (New Delhi) – See all my reviews

This movie brilliantly depicts the struggle of a farmer in Assam when his land has been illegally captures by a zamindar. The director,Jahnu Barua has done a commendable job in bringing out the social issues prevailing in the villages of Assam at that time, which can be generalized and related to any village of India.He beautifully brings out the poignant emotions which leaves a lasting impression on the viewer. The ending of the movie is what makes this movie one of his best works in my opinion (though I would confess to have seen very few of his films). Overall, I would say that this movie is a gem of not just Assamese cinema but also Indian Cinema. 9.5/10
