The film “Chor” has been shot in the scenic locals of Karbi Anglong. The story of the film is an epitome of minimalism and yet extremely sensitive and it deals with a bicycle and a bunch of children. Even before the film got on the floors, it got a chance to participate in the International Film Festival of India at Goa, organized by Film Bazar. Later, International Film Festival of Rotterdam had also invited Khanjan Kishore Nath to participate in the “Producer Lab” section of their festival. After that, the director Nath shot the film with the help of a few friends in a shoe string budget because he could not get a producer in the region. The editing part of the movie has already been completed in Guwahati. The post-production is going on in full swing in Mumbai. The director has himself written the story and the screenplay. Bikash Dutta is the editor. Cinematography was handled by Jayanth Mathabhan . Anurag Saikia has provided the background score. The film has been made under the banner of “Ramdhenu Films” and has been co-produced by Krishna Upadhaya.
