Assamese filmmaker Rima Das’ Village Rockstars took home multiple awards at the 65th National Film Awards. It bagged the Best Feature Film Award along with Best Child Artist Award for lead actress Bhanita Das, Best Audiography Award for Ambient Sound and Best Editing Award for Rima Das.
Set in the backdrop of simple village life in Assam, Village Rockstars tells the story of a young girl, Dhunnu, who hails from a poor family. While her mother struggles to make ends meet, Dhunnu dreams of owning an electric guitar and forming a rock band in a flood-ravaged village in Assam. How she overcomes the odds along with her friends and turns her dreams into reality makes for an inspirational story.
