Panaji, Nov 30 (UNI) Rajkamal Bhuyan, the producer of the Assamese film 'Jaatingaa Ityaadi' screened at the ongoing International Film Festival of India, said he was motivated by the urge to show the real face of militancy in his state.
The film has been directed by Sanjeeb Sabhapandit. This is his second film, and his first one 'Juye Poora Xoon' won him the National Film Award in 2004.
'Jaatingaa Ityaadi' shows how militancy in Assam has created a deep fear psychosis among the people and how militants lure innocent young men and women into their fold.
''This film is an attempt to showcase the real face of militancy which has destroyed the social fabric of Assam,'' Bhuyan said addressing a press conference here.
He said it was difficult to screen the film across the theatres in Assam and other Northeastern states as most of them were either in poor shape or were not receiving enough viewers due to the fear of militant attacks.
Therefore, the effort was being made to reach maximum viewers through release of VCDs/DVDs. ''A good response has been received from overseas markets, especially Australia and US for the film's VCDs/DVDs,'' he said.
The film was shot in a period of three weeks at a cost of Rs 40 lakh.
