     12Grim melodrama set in the context of the All- 
     13Assam Students’ Union agitations during the 
     141983 elections, a familiar setting for mainstream 
     15Assamese cinema of the period (cf. Hem Bora’s 
     16Sankalpa, 1986). Papori’s (Desai) husband 
     17Binod (Goswami) is falsely arrested for murder. 
     18Her daughter is in hospital, where she 
     19eventually dies. Papori’s only support, a police 
     20inspector (Phukan), finds the true murderer but 
     21cannot arrest him because the killer enjoys 
     22political protection. Papori is raped by a 
     23smuggler, her husband is convicted of murder 
     24and only an arbitrarily added epilogue, 
     25claiming that the husband is eventually freed 
     26and the good inspector promoted, brings a 
     27glimmer of relief. In his later Halodiya 
     28Choraye Baodhan Khaye (1987), Barua 
     29again weaves contemporary political events 
     30into a melodramatic plot.
