Guwahati: Indian Film Director Anurag Kashyap appealed to the people through his twitter account that if anyone would be present in the New York city during the Tribeca Film Festival (TFF) then they should not miss the premiere of the Assamese feature film of Bhaskar Hazarika "Aamis" saying that nothing like it has ever come out of India.
The world premiere of Assamese feature film written and directed by Bhaskar Hazarika "Aamis" will be seen in this year TFF in New York to be held from April 24 to May 5.

The film is about two people whom love finds and yet with too many boundaries between them it degenerates into self-destruction. Their love facilitated by urban anonymity, access to public eateries and instant messaging apps. The film depicts a bleak nihilistic view of life where every emerging character scarred in the end no matter what choices are made.
The film depicts about a paediatrician, Nirmali who is in her late 30s and is leading a peaceful but joyless domestic life in Guwahati, Assam and her husband who is a senior doctor spends most of his time doing relief work in surrounding areas leaving his wife alone at home to take care of their son.
