A story that dates back to the 80s. An unusual machine makes an entry into a village. Its called TV. It provokes a huge ruckus with people from all over scrambling to have a look at this black and white TV stationed at the most wealthiest of village households.
A group of enthusiastic villagers getting together to dug a hole beside the house, setting up a bamboo pole where a antenna is mounted on top of it, the mechanic turning the antenna back and forth, the visuals coming out right occasionally but most times it looks as though there is a blizzard going on, with people of all shapes and sizes assembling on the floor – these are but some of the cherished moments that naturally unfolded when TV made its debut in this village.
The music of the movie is composed by Mousam Gogoi.
