     3Assamese director. His only film, Ganga Chiloner Pankhi (1975), took a decade to make. Hiren Gohain, one of the foremost commentators on contemporary Assamese culture, speaks of him as ‘the first man to raise the standard of revolt against both the outworn theatrical mode and the slick Bombay style movie. [H]e is a director who can show us things.’ Was musically inclined since childhood and an articulate cinephile since his student days at Benares Hindu University. Claims to have been influenced by John Ford, P.C. Barua, V. Shantaram and Debaki Bose.
