Title: Suspended Inspector Boro
Release Date: 07th December, 2018
Suspended Inspector Boro, is Kenny Basumatary’s third film as a director. Kenny has earlier directed the cult action-comedy series of Local KungFu.
The film is slated to hit theatres on December 7th. Starring Utkal Hazowary in the title role, the film is an action thriller that features most of the actors from Local Kung Fu part 1 & 2. The new addition to the cast is Mumbai-based actress Poonam Gurung, who debuted in feature films with ‘Sunshine music tours and travels’ in 2016, and had a highly appreciated role in last year’s hit Bengali film Khoj.
When the film begins we see Inspector Boro is already suspended for bashing up a well-connected gang. Then an SP calls him and asks him unofficially to find a girl named Sabrina Rai who’s gone missing. 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. One highly interesting element is that Kenny is playing the main villain, Inspector Lokkhi Modon Jwala.
Suspended Inspector Boro is jointly produced by Bhishan Rai, Priyama Goswami and Kenny. “Thanks to them, we have really managed to upgrade our production values this time,” says 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.”
Suruj Deka returns to handle cinematography duties and Dhruva J Bordoloi (Dooronir Nirola Poja) colour graded the film.
An eclectic mix of songs are being composed for SIB – one by rising star Shankuraj Konwar (sung by Eepsita Hazarika), one by Utkal (a duet with Sarmistha Chakravorty), a hard rock piece by Derrick Correia and Anisha Saikia, and a rap-metal track by Vishal J Singha. The background music and sound design are being done by Marathi Filmfare award winners Utkarsh Dhotekar and Ranjan Pattnayak respectively.
A Hindi version of Suspended Inspector Boro is also being prepared. All the dialog scenes were shot twice – once in Assamese and once in Hindi.
