Within its bounds and restrictions, the activity of filmmaking in Assam is a regional establishment that is structured and systematized. Because Assam's box office isn't as huge as the country's other regional film industries, investors prefer to avoid creating pictures that don't appeal to a wide audience. The majority of films released in theatres faithfully adhere to the established mainstream formula and are more concerned with generating money than with experimenting with the parameters of filmmaking.
The release of an Assamese musician turned actor Zubeen Garg's 'Mission China,' which he directed and produced, adds a fresh feather to the industry's crown on September 8, 2017. The film is hailed as one of the biggest hits of the Assamese film industry, with melodic music, dancing sequences, and picturesque locales. It was also released in major metropolitan centers across the country.
Assam Director Rima Das brought glory to the North Eastern State when her featured movie Village Rockstar captured international audience.
