Assamese film Suspended Inspector Boro was premiered today before a house full of audience at Carnival Cinemas in Beltola in Guwahati. The film is being released across theatres in Assam on December 7.
The film, by the team of super-hit Assamese films Local Kung Fu 1 and 2, is a serious action thriller starring actor Utkal Hazowary in the title role, and several popular actors from the Local Kung Fu series.
Written and directed by Kenny Basumatary, Suspended Inspector Boro (SIB), is being screened simultaneously on December 7 in theatres across Assam and in the metro cities on December 14 depending on cooperation from multiplexes outside Assam.
The film is jointly produced by Bhishan Rai, Priyama Goswami and Kenny Basumatary. “I must thank and congratulate the team. We have managed to greatly raise our production values this time.. The fight scenes are one level higher…remember we have broken a lot of stuff in this film. Hope the public enjoys the experience,” said director-actor Kenny Basumatary after the premiere.
Speaking about Suspended Inspector Boro, filmmaker Bhaskar Hazarika, of Kothanodi fame, said: “I am thrilled to see Kenny’s new film getting a wide release in the state. SIB is an entertaining Assamese martial arts film but with a script that is conscious of gender and other social issues of the day. I urge people to watch the film in their nearest cinema hall.”
A Hindi version of Suspended Inspector Boro is also being prepared. All the dialog scenes were shot twice – once in Assamese and once in Hindi. The Hindi version is expected to be ready in January next year. Director Kenny said, “I hope Assamese people will help spread the Hindi version among their non-Assamese friends.”
