Guwahati, Sept 22: Crusader against witch hunting menace Birubala Rabha has highly lauded the upcoming Assamese feature film Aei Maatite, saying it depicts the true picture of the unfortunate incidents that are taking place in Assam. After a special screening organised exclusively for her and Mission Birubala, the fighter lady praised the makers of the first Assamese full-length feature film on witch hunting and opined that the film should be widely viewed, especially by those people who are under the grip of this deadly menace. Aei Maatite is releasing on October 6 in all major cinemas across Assam and some important places in other North Eastern states.

“The battle that many like me are fighting in their lives against superstition, Dr. Lahkar Sir has shown that in the film and I really liked it. We need more such films, dramas, street plays. These kinds of media support the fight that Mission Birubala is continuing for years,” Rabha said after watching the film.

Aei Maatite, made under the banner of Angeekar Films, is directed by independent filmmaker and eminent theatre personality Dr. Sitanath Lahkar and it is an adaptation of his famous stage play Tamasaa on the burning problem of witch hunting. The story, screenplay, dialogues and lyrics have also been penned by Dr. Lahkar, a retired principal of Cotton College.

The special screening was organised at Birubala Rabha’s home at Thakurbila, a remote village about 20 kilometres away from Agia in Goalpara district. Along with her, Mission Birubala’s President Usha Rabha and a few other members of the organisation also watched the film.

“I truly loved the film. I sincerely wish the best to Sitanath Sir and the team. I really thank him for making a film on this problem,” Birubala Rabha said.

Expressing overwhelming satisfaction, Mission Birubala’s President Usha Rabha said: “The film has shown some real incidents. It has brought tears to my eyes that how people are still under the grip of superstition. The film is a very good step in creating awareness and people of Assam should watch it.”

“I think this film is very useful for our campaign also as it has shown gruesome inhuman tortures meted out to those branded as witches such as feeding stool and urine. I also loved the acting of Sitanath Sir and thank him personally for making this film. From Mission Birubala also, I thank Sir for making the film on this subject,” Usha Rabha said.

Expressing happiness, Dr Lahkar said: “It gives me immense satisfaction that the iron lady Birubala Rabha and her co-fighters loved Aei Maatite. Their overwhelming and spontaneous reactions have boosted my and the team’s moral strength. The appreciation to the authenticity of the scenes in the film is a testimony to our honesty. We now have confidence that people of Assam will surely love Aei Maatite.”

Angeekar Films received the clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (Censor Board) for Aei Maatite with a U/A certificate.



The ‘action-drama’ film has some very critical scenes, shooting of which were done with utmost care and precision. Such type of rustic action scenes are hardly seen in Assamese films. The film cinematically showcases some of the inhuman killings in the name of witch hunting.

AEI MAATITE mainly talks about the witch hunting problem in Assam and how a section of people are using witchcraft for their own interest. The film has a very strong message against witch hunting, upholding the value of scientific temperament and human life. Witch hunting has no reason at all and is shrouded with darkness of superstition, which is to be overcome by the society itself – this is the say of the film.
