The team of super-hit Assamese films Local Kung Fu 1 and 2 is ready with their third production, Suspended Inspector Boro, releasing on December 7.
A serious action thriller, starring actor Utkal Hazowary in the title role, and several popular actors from the Local Kung Fu series, the film’s trailer was released on Thursday.
Written and directed by Kenny Basumatary, Suspended Inspector Boro, will be releasing on December 7 in Assam. If there is public demand in the metros outside Assam, then theatrical shows will also be arranged through 1018mb.com. The film is shot in both Assamese and Hindi.
The trailer of Suspended Inspector Boro has already gathered attention with over 40,000 organic views on YouTube within 12 hours of its release.
Jointly produced by Bhishan Rai, Priyama Goswami and Kenny, the film promises to take the action sequences to a whole new level. “Thanks to them, we have really managed to upgrade our production values this time,” said Kenny. “The fights are one level higher than LKF 2. We didn’t break anything in our previous films; this time we’ve broken lots of stuff. And we also used the Sony FS 700 camera to get super slow-motion shots,” he added.
“The new addition to the cast is Mumbai-based actress Poonam Gurung, who had a highly appreciated role in last year’s hit Bengali film Khoj. She already has an Assam-connection…she played Birubala Rabha in an episode of Salaam India,” said actor-director Kenny Basumatary.
The plot, written by Basumatary, starts with Inspector Boro already suspended for bashing up a highly connected gang. Then an SP calls him and 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.
An eclectic mix of songs have been composed for Suspended Inspector Boro – Mukto Aakax by rising star Shankuraj Konwar (sung by Eepsita Hazarika), Aaji Kiyo Janu by Utkal (a duet with Sarmistha Chakravorty), a hard rock piece by Derrick Correia and Anisha Saikia, and a rap track on garbage management sung by Bonny Deori. The first two songs have just been released to great response. The background music and sound design in Suspended Inspector Boro are being done by Marathi Filmfare award winners Utkarsh Dhotekar and Ranjan Pattnayak respectively.
