Assamese film ‘Paglee’ finally hits the screens in the State and parts of the North East on November 4. Its not often that we get to see female-centric movies on screen. This one’s out to prove that woman-centric films can be quite engaging, entertaining and worth the money spent. A young, simple, fun-loving rustic girl suddenly turns into a destructive, gun-toting vengeance seeker, someone who completely loses her sense of direction and purpose, creating an atmosphere of chaos in town. What exactly compelled her to turn into this insane ‘killer’? Why did she took law into her own hands?
What happened to the promises made by the powers-that-be of bringing about a sea-change in society? What have they done to eradicate corruption and injustice?
The film reveals deep-seated truths beneath the girl’s hostile facade. A female-driven action movie, ‘Paglee’ stars Prastuti Parashar in an action-based avatar. The film written, scripted and directed by Rupjyoti Bora intends to defy the traditional belief that action movies need male leads to attract audiences. The action scenes – designed by Binud Kumbang, will show the heroine daringly taking on villains.
