“I wanted to make a film no one else could have made, preferably a popular entertainer, and I had the resources at hand, so why not. “By the time I’d decided to make ‘Local Kung Fu’, I’d already made about 10-12 short films and music videos, including 5-6 fight videos. So I was confident that we would be able to pull off a full-length feature film, with the help of my family and friends,”
Basumatary told who played the role of an assistant superintendent of police in Dibakar Banerjee’s “Shanghai”.

The film “Local Kung Fu” follows a young man named Charlie who moves to Guwahati to win over his girlfriend’s family, but runs into unexpected obstacles, including Bonzo, a wannabe under-18 don of the city, and Dulu, an actual mid- level don who wants a license for a liquor store from Charlie’s girlfriend’s uncle.
