This upcoming Assamese feature film has been inspired by Sahityarathi Lakshminath Bezbaroa’s collection of fables. Kothanodi-The River of Fables- is a film about four mothers. The screenplay is based on events and characters described in popular Assamese folk tales compiled in the anthology ‘বুঢ়ী আইৰ সাধু’ or Grandma’s Tales, by Assamese literary luminary Lakshminath Bezbaroa, and first published in 1911.

The film depicts four shades of motherhood, as they appear in four separate stories contained in Burhi Aair Haadhu (Grandma’s Tales). Kothanodi – The River of Fables attempts a re-imagination of the material, without distorting the stories’ original dramatic premises. The first schedule has been completed, with shooting taking place in Majuli Island, Assam. The second schedule is will be shot in October 2014.
