Story of my film
Machang Lalung, a tribal youth(victim of unlawful detention for long 54 years).He hails from middle Assam, a Indian North Eastern State.He was arrested by the police for a silly offence in the year 1951 when he was 23 years age.At the time of arrest he even did not know under what offence he was arrested.Soon after his arrest, he suffered from epilepsy disease.The jail authority mistaken him as a mental patient and shifted him to Tezpur mental hospital.The poor tribal youth had to spent 54 years in mental hospital as an undertrial prisoner without any legal formalities or court hearing. His illegal detention is three times more than any punishment under Indian Law. Finally in a routin checking by the National Human Right Commission's his illegal detention was detected and ordered to government for his early release.And he was released in the year 2005 by the Chief Judicial Megistrate at Guwahati at that time his age was 77 years.
