Finally, rest of the country is taking note of Northeast cinema: Sanjib Dey

For the longest time, it is no secret that the Northeast has felt disconnected from the rest of the country. But now, director of ‘III Smoking Barrels’ Sanjib Dey asserts that the cinema from the Northeast is making the rest of the country sit up and take notice.

Writer-director Sanjib Dey says, “The whole tradition of cinema in the Northeast was quite strong. There was a time when films from this region where highly revered and they did good business too. But with the rise of multiple insurgency movements in the last few decades, I have no doubt that cinema has suffered the most in this region. With relatively peaceful environment now, there seems to be a revival with very strong films coming back into national focus. That’s a healthy sign. I am hoping these good films do good business as well so that the industry here as a whole gets a lift to the next level.”

He has also richly brought together six different languages making it India’s first truly multilingual film and one of the biggest films from the Northeast, further showcasing the beauty and rich culture and languages of the Northeast.
