Guwahati: Assamese film maker Chandra Mudoi’s film ‘Ronuwa-Who never surrender’ bagged the prestigious Rajat Kamal Path Award for best Assamese Film at the 67th National Film Awards held at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on Monday.

Elated at receiving his first National Award, Ronuwa said “The story is based in artificial floods that occur in Guwahati city due to excessive rainfall. The story is about how people suffer.”

“The film is available on the online streaming platform ReelDrama at present and everybody can watch the film there. We will try to get the film to the theatres across the state of Assam for people soon,” Mudoi told EastMojo, on being asked if they plan to release the film in theatres.

The film revolves around a cycle rickshaw puller, Jadhav, who barely earns enough to support his family. He and his wife Makon wish to see their children well-educated, thereby fulfilling their unrealized wishes. However, a flood in Guwahati brings devastation in their lives.

Chandra Mudoi made his debut with Suren Suror Putek in 2005 and has directed several other Assamese films like Soi Gaaor Chompa and Purab Ki Awaz.

Watch this film on the OTT platform Reeldrama.
