GUWAHATI, March 24 - Mrigtrishna: Mirage � a short film by Mumbai-based Assamese film editor Rantu Chetia, was recently screened at the Global India International Film Festival�2019 at Texas as an official entry.
It is the second poem-based short film by Chetia, which depicts the life of a village boy who wants to be an actor and feels lost in a big city.
�Mumbai has been the city of dreams for ages. Millions, from every nook and corner of India, come here every day to try their luck in the film world of Bollywood. Only a handful gets their dreams realised though. The rest are left to face the harsh realities of life and the dilemma of their existence. The primary question that constantly hounds them is the motive of their life in Mumbai. The poem tries to portray this very existential query of the protagonist, who is a struggling actor and has left behind the joyous and playful life of the village,� said the director about the film.
