     15With this ecological drama, Assam’s leading 
     16director Jahnu Barua continues exploring the 
     17conflict between corrupt state politics and a 
     18determined individual (cf. Halodiya Choraye 
     19Baodhan Khaye, 1987). The forest ranger 
     20(Goswami) confronts illegal timber merchants 
     21and contractors on behalf of impoverished 
     22tribals. The honest ranger’s activities get him 
     23into trouble and he is constantly transferred 
     24from one post to another, to the annoyance of 
     25his wife who wants him to settle down and 
     26look after their ailing child. Eventually she 
     27supports her husband’s fight and the tribals 
     28realise they need weapons to defend 
     29themselves against rapacious outsiders. The 
     30film’s simple plot is interrupted by long  
     31didactic speeches.
