Plot

A British couple visits Assam looking for the graveyard of the man’s grandfather who was once a tea planter. With a view to drawing international attention, an underground rebel group kidnaps the couple. But being unable to communicate with the foreign couple, the outfit picks up an educated but frustrated youth who is fluent in English. Eager to be a part of that so-called "movement" of the group, the boy readily jumps in. But inside the hideout, Manab, the protagonist, discovers that the idea he had of the militant group and its "struggle for independence" was entirely wrong. He decides to help the British couple escape. In the process he is killed in a crossfire with all the militants present in the scene.

Title of the film

Speaking about the significance of the film title, Sabhapadit informed that Jatinga is a small place in Assam where birds are said to commit suicide. But this is not the case - birds do not actually commit suicide, they are lured to death. At night, people hold bamboo torches to attract these birds and when they fly close, they are clubbed to death. Same way in the guise of a revolution the boys are lured into a death trap. Drawing a similarity between the birds and the youth, he chose that title for his movie.
