5. It will not be right to reveal the story now yet I can say that it is a teenage love story and how an innocent teenage became victim of a crucial crime. The film is raising a very vital question about justice to a victim. Yes, many Assamese popular faces will be seen in some very important characters in the film but the story is not about an Assam incident".
The film has the potential to be a powerhouse of the arts thanks to the casting of talented actress Ritisha Khaund. Bodhisattva Sharma, an Assamese actor who had a significant role in the well-liked online series "Patal Lok," will play a crucial part in the movie.
