    Dear friend

    People go to enjoy movie for entertainment. In last 20 years most of the Assamese film director are trying to focus different social or political issues of Assam through their movies. This is the major drawback of Assamese film. When someone goes to theatre for entertainment and have to face boring in every dialogue, it will become irritating for common people. Please try to entertain us through movie, we don’t need knowledge in every dialogue. And have a request to you all search other active artist instead of those labelled Assamese film artist.
    Don’t mind please.
