Speaking about Suspended Inspector Boro, filmmaker Bhaskar Hazarika, of Kothanodi fame, said: “I am thrilled to see Kenny’s new film getting a wide release in the state. SIB is an entertaining Assamese martial arts film but with a script that is conscious of gender and other social issues of the day. I urge people to watch the film in their nearest cinema hall.”
“We are glad to see this level of interest among the filmgoers for an Assamese film. From the audience reaction at the premier, we can easily say that Suspended Inspector Boro will be a hit.

The plot, written by Kenny Basumatary, starts with Inspector Boro already suspended for bashing up a highly connected gang. A preview of the sequence was already released on YouTube which went viral.
Inspector Boro gets a call from an SP who asks him unofficially to find a girl named Sabrina Rai who’s gone missing three days ago. She was taken from her Udalguri village to Guwahati on the pretext of job training, but now her phone’s been switched off for three days and she’s vanished. Inspector Boro heads to Guwahati and fights his way to the truth. Interestingly, Kenny is playing the main villain, Inspector Lokkhi Modon Jwala.
Suruj Deka returns to handle cinematography duties and director Dhruva J Bordoloi (Dooronir Nirola Poja) colour graded the film.

The Hindi version is expected to be ready in January next year. Director Kenny says, “I hope Assamese people will help spread the Hindi version among their non-Assamese friends.”
