‘Aei Maatite’ which is the first Assamese to be made on witch hunting has hit theatres today. But unfortunately, it did not see the light of the day at Rang Ghar cinema in Tinsukia and Bhaskarjyoti Cinema in Sivasagar. It was due to non-delivery of the film content by the Mumbai-based company UFO Moviez India. It is despite all the necessary formalities being completed by the producers much before the release date. All payments for the release were also made by the producers on time.
A statement from the makers said, ‘The non-delivery of the film by the Mumbai-based company is totally unacceptable. We strongly condemn such behaviour of UFO Moviez India to this Assamese film, which is based on a very serious and burning issue of the Assamese society. Accordingly, the producer – ANGEEKAR FILMS – has decided to move the Court against UFO Moviez India as it was a breach of agreement. It is a sheer negligence towards Assamese films. There was no fault at all of the cinema hall management.’
