     13Barua’s Assamese modernisation melodrama 
     14tells of the boatman Puwal (Kharghoria) who 
     15ferries people across the remote Dihing river. 
     16On the invitation of his son Hemanta (Nath), he 
     17goes to see him in the city, Guwahati. Hemanta 
     18invited the old man mainly to have him sign a 
     19legal document that would enable the sale of 
     20family land. The circumstances of the deal 
     21disillusion Puwal, who returns to his village. 
     22There, in the film’s second half, a bridge is built 
     23over the river by corrupt politicians and 
     24bureaucrats, losing the boatman his ancestral 
     25employment. Constructed in two movements, 
     26the film is held together by the relationship 
     27between Puwal and his orphaned grandson, 
     28Hkhuman (S. Barua), which becomes the 
     29framing device representing the kind of 
     30modernity that encircles the uncomprehending 
     31old man. Elements of the plot resemble the 
     32director’s earlier Halodiya Choraye 
     33Baodhan Khaye (1987), but even the 
     34symbolic revolt of the earlier film is now 
     35missing.
