The first show of Assamese cult classic Local Kung Fu 2 opened to a thunderous response across the state on Wednesday afternoon. Based on William Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, the film can easily claim the spot for most awaited Assamese film of the year with shows being pre-booked online to nearly housefull capacity at different theatres. The show at PVR was booked to over 80% capacity online and the rest of the seats filled up through counter sales much before the show actually began.
Speaking after the show at PVR, actor-director-producer Kenny Deori Basumatary said, “We are truly humbled by the love we have received from our fans. It is because of their support on our crowdfunding campaign that the film could hit the theatres today, and now, with the amazing day-1 bookings, we couldn’t be happier. Now, we are sure our fans will definitely make this film a blockbuster success.”
The film is about two pairs of twins who get separated at birth. One pair of twins stays in Guwahati and the other stays in Tezpur. The pair in Guwahati know martial arts, but the pair in Tezpur don’t. After a series of events, the pair from Guwahati ends up in Tezpur, and that is when the confusion begins.
