Guwahati: Assamese comedy film “Local Utpat” directed by Kenny Basumatary has collected Rs.1 crore in three weeks after its release.
The reaction of the public in Assam to the movie “Local Utpat” which was released on May 13 in Assam has been satisfactory. Many spectators in the state felt a sort of persecution for watching the local riots. This is evident from the film’s box office collection.
Local Utpaat is run by Kenny Basumatary after his famous previous “Local Kung Fu” and “Suspended Inspector Boro”. The comedy flick grossed more than Ranveer Singh star Jayeshbhai Jordaar and “Dr Strange” in its first week.
Audience demand for the show increased in almost every theater. “Local Utpaat” is currently in its second week in most theaters. The film has a whopping 97% public rating on bookmyshow.com.
Speaking to our sister channel Northeast Live, on the success of ‘Local Utpaat’, director Kenny Basumatary said, “I am grateful for the success of the film, the audience response has more than doubled our expectations.” With the success in Assam and the huge response to the film, we have decided to release “Local Utpaat” in Delhi, Bombay and Kolkata next week on May 27th.
Local Utpaat follows the lives of three friends, Amit, Jonny and Montu, who reside in a rented house owned by a sleepwalking landlord named Deben Da. When Amit’s girlfriend, Maya, has a fight with her sister, it sets off a series of humorous events.
Bollywood action star Vidyut Jammwal has sponsored an upcoming Assamese action movie titled ‘Local Utpaat’. Jammwal provided financial support for the film.
