Jajabor, its a new Assamese Film which is now under post production stage is being directed by Mumbai-based cameraperson Rajib Sarma and Produced by Mousumi Sharma.
Jajabor is the first venture by Rajib Sharma, an FTII alumni. “I am basically a cameraman staying in Mumbai from last 10 years.After shooting an experimental film last year ,directed by Mr.Ishraq,which was a 4 days shoot(duration-90 minutes) i got the confidence to direct my own script which is very close to my heart since it is based on real life incidents.So I thought why not assamese, my mother tounge. Money always remains a factor in film making, but me and some of my very good selfless friends love towards cinema made JAJABOR happen.So finally I shot JAJABOR in January 2013 in Guwahati and Tura within a span of 6 days with a crew of 20.” said Rajib.
A bunch of creative and passionate film lovers help in the making of this film. Director Rajib Sharma mentioned some names like Moushumi Sharma (producer), Lokkhi Borthakur, Samir, Biki Patgiri, Pranjul (JCFTI faculty), his Mumbai based friends Mahesh, Santosh, Devabrota, Subhamoy, Rohit , Swapnil and his hard working,energetic & passionate students.
