Arindam Sharma, a 22-year-old youth who graduated from Kaziranga University and a certified filmmaker from Mumbai Film Academy, is all set to make the first Assamese science fiction superhero film “Advitya.”

The film will star Nipon Goswami, Jetaban Baruah, Chiranjib Dutta, Vivek Bora, Anamika Barman, Priyam Pallavi and Niha Rani Das, amongst others.

Announcing the film’s details at a press meet held at the Jorhat Press Club, Arindam stated that the story of the movie, its direction, screenplay, dialogues would be done by Sharma himself. He further said that the financier of the film is Brojendra Nath Sharma and the production company is Krrishna Kraft Productions of Jorhat. The film would also be released in Bengali.

“Advitya will have special effects of the latest VFX and animation technology and the film is expected to be released in 2020 or early 2021,” informed Arindam.

 Arindam has earlier acted in a VCD film called “UFO Returns” in 2012 which was a science fiction film produced by Brojendra Nath Sharma. Arindam, in 2016, also directed a short film titled, “Love: It’s Complicated.” Later, in 2017, he left for Mumbai to learn filmmaking and in 2018 he has come back with his new project “Advitya.”

“A project like this where VFX and animation technology still remains unexplored, especially in the area of regional cinema, Advitya promises to be the first of its kind with a new perspective,” said Arindam.

Arindam informed that the film would be an independent production, boasting of state-of-the-art VFX technology, CG characters and 3D animation. The film, being the first regional sci-fi superhero movie from Assam, is expected to pave the way for directors of the region to explore the genre.
