News Daily Digital Desk: The name of the film is ‘Mur Ghurar Duronto Goti’ (Mur Ghurar Duronto Goti). In Bengali it means my horse is fast. This Assamese short film is the talk of the town right now. It won’t happen anymore or why, this film made in Kolkata is in the Oscar race this time. This film by 27-year-old director Maharishi Tuhin Kashyap is going to the Oscars for India in the short-length category. Which was actually made by Maharishi as a student project while studying at the Satyajit Ray Film Institute in Kolkata.

Maharishi told news agency PTI, ‘It feels like a dream come true. I can’t think. We were very closely associated with this film. Most of the film was shot in Kolkata.’

What kind of story does this picture tell?

This film tells the story of a man. He who thinks he has the fastest horse in the world. He wants to conquer the world with that horse. Win all the horse races. He doesn’t really have a horse. There is a donkey! Maharshi has written the story of this film by combining the story of the horse beating the donkey with today’s society. But there is not only surprise in the story, in this film Maharshi has brought back the 600-year-old dying ‘art form’ of Assam, Ojapoli. Ojapali is an art form where stories are told through singing, dancing and gestures. The director made the film in that format. Artist Ojapali played the lead role in this film. The film has already won awards at several film festivals in the country.
