Kaya, first online serial from Assam

The web series genre, though still at its nascent stage, is creating a space for young, independent filmmakers to present their work in the digital medium. Now, Assam is all set to witness its first-ever web-series, which could well set a new trend. Titled ‘Kaya’, the serial, planned as a 100-episode series, will be shown on the popular video-sharing site – YouTube, in the last week of July. A tale of mystery and horror, ‘Kaya’s story, script, dialogue and direction is by Surajit Hatimuria, who hails from Nazira in Sivasagar district. A number of episodes have already been shot in different locations of Nazira and Guwahati. If this web-series somehow hits it off with the viewers, it will open up more possibilities for emerging filmmakers to produce such shows in the future.

‘Kaya’ revolves around the lives of three friends, who live in a rented apartment, where they often find themselves clueless while trying to adjust themselves to their new surroundings. The unusual quietness that prevails all along is unnerving. The owner’s household also comprises of a son and a daughter, but they scarcely ever talk or engage in any discussion. The secret love of the youths for the same girl in the house produces some humorous elements too, amidst the tension.

Finally, after mustering up courage, the three boys try to unravel the strange mysteries and secrets of the household on their own. The series, with its numerous incidents and sub-plots, looks quite promising, and is expected to create quite an impact on the viewers.

Apart from choreographing a number of music videos, including the songs of Bhrigu Kashyap, ‘Kaya’s director Surajit Hatimuria has directed some video films in the past. He has choreographed a song in the upcoming film – ‘Jeevanor Batot’, directed by Dhrubajyoti Mohan. A Hindi song choreographed by him – ‘Yaad Aayenge’, featuring the voices of Paritush Dutta and Sheikh Raisha Tabassum, became extremely popular not just in India, but also in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Produced by Surajit Hatimuria under the banner of ‘SH Entertainment’, ‘Kaya’ stars Momi Changmai, Surajit Hatimuria, Putul Neog, Angshuman, Emon Neog, Deepika Barua, Ejaz Akram, Brajen, amongst other artistes. The camera work has been done by Diganta Handique, the music is by Deepanjal Mech, the editing has been done by Biman Barua and the make-up is by Sikha Hatimuria.
