Kokrajhar: A feature film produced under the banner of Dark Horse Media of Barama in Baksa district – Sinaithi (The Identity) – will be released in September. The story is based on Bijit, a vegetable supplier in Shillong who resides there with his wife Maidang and son Rifikhang. Bwhwithi, a kindergarten teacher from Baksa, is on a vacation to Shillong and befriends Rifikhang. On a business trip to Smit, Bijit is left injured after a brawl with some crooks. He conceals the truth from his son and says that he had met with an accident. The truth is revealed through the driver upon inspection of the vehicle that bears no scratches or dents as signs of an accident. The search for the malefactors begin and on the quest, he finds out a bigger truth that concerns his own personal identity. This little piece of history is buried deep and dates back to the 90s, during the time of the Bodoland Autonomous Council (BAC) Accord when three revolutionary friends – Swmkhwr, Phakhon, and Rwdwm parted in a dreadful way.
Bwhwithi and Rifikhang eventually fall for each other but are separated by Abir who knew little about Bijit’s family. They develop an attitude of abhorrence towards each other. Rwdwm and his son Abir, posing as businessmen, are involved in illegal activities like drug peddling, extortion, money laundering, and land grabbing. Rifikhang eventually avenges his father and uncle while Rwdwm and Abir are brought to justice in the backdrop of traditional sports.
The film’s direction is by Phoongbili Basumatary. The songs have been rendered by Biraj Mochahary, Geetasri Ramchiary, Janali Ramchiary and Birkhang.
