Rahashyar Bitchaku (Seven Hundred Zero Zero Seven) by Altaf Mazid

Ranju Hazarika is a popular pulp fiction writer in Assam, writing relentlessly in Assamese since the 1970s. Most Assamese kids of the 70s and 80s started their reading habits on unforgettable characters created by him, with themes ranging from detective and horror stories to social romance. The Film is an enquiry into Ranju Hazarika’s life and work - unfolding the man in an unconventional way.
