Assamese Film 'Footpathor Hero’ Completes Shooting

Except for a couple of songs, the shooting of ‘Footpathor Hero’ has been wrapped up. As informed by the film’s director Rubul Das, the picturisations of the songs will be held in Shillong and its outskirts. Produced jointly by Lucky Production and Dilip Kumar Das, the movie made with an eye on the contemporary tastes, carries a strong social message. The film’s story, script and dialogues are written by the director himself.

Cinematographed by Sunny, Amar and Rubul Das with the Cannon Mark 4 camera, the film was shot in the locations of Odisha, Shillong, Nalbari and Guwahati. The film’s music is composed by Bhaskar Medhi and Bipul Sarma. Edited by Rajiv Saikia, the film’s associate producers are Biswanath Biswas and Dipti Barua.

‘Footpathor Hero’ recounts the fascinating story of a youth, who was raised by good-hearted street-dwellers in a footpath, after being saved as a child from the clutches of a kidnapper. As a grown up young man, he decides to dedicate his life to the cause of the homeless street community and the deprived lot. He is joined in his noble endeavour by a lady from the police force. This educated young woman even submits a memorandum to the government, urging it to adopt viable measures and alternatives for the rehabilitation of the defenseless and the destitute. It could perhaps motivate them to pick up a line of professional life that is redeeming.
