Private Project

Home, faraway

Hiranya Barua, a Private Insurance employee, shifts with his family of four to a new town. Soon, with Son- Aditya excelling in studies, Daughter – Prerna winning accolades in dance and Wife –Manju deftly managing the household as always, he decides to settle down for good. His long cherished dream of giving his family a simple, honest and fulfilling life seems to be a reality.

Aditya - ambitious, practical and thus little sceptical about his father’s dream, knows that the life in this small town may not be that simple and future not that rosy.

However, even he wasn’t prepared for his family’s worst nightmares that are going to come true...

With myths, facts and facets from the serene land of Axom, Dooronir Nirola Poja, is a stoic reminder of the struggle within many small towns in India.
