Breaking Convention, Kothanodi to Premier at Majuli

Breaking Convention, Kothanodi to Premier at Majuli

In a departure from convention, the makers of the Assamese film ‘Kothanodi’ announced on Friday that the film’s premiere in Assam will be held in the river island Majuli on September 13.

Kothanodi, which won the national award this year, is based on events and characters of Assamese folk stories compiled by Lakshminath Bezbaroa in Buri Ai’r Xadhu. Director of the film Bhaskar Hazarika said that most of the film was shot in Majuli and the crew was received with warmth and love by the people there. He added that it is only right that instead of asking the people of the river island to take the long ferry ride to Jorhat to watch the movie, we go ourselves and screen the film for them before it is seen by the rest of Assam.

Noted film critic Utpal Borpujari said that it is the first time that an Assamese film is being premiered in Majuli, a place where there are no cinema halls. He lauded the commendable and innovative initiative by the producers.

The premiere is being organized in Uttar Kamalabari Satra of the island on September 13 at 6 pm. The premier will be attended by the film’s cast and crew and the producers have sent out an open invitation for all the people of Majuli to come and watch the film. Kothanodi will release in theatres across Assam on September 16, 2016.
