The life and works of legendary Assamese physician, social worker and philanthropist Bhubaneswar Barooah, also known as ‘Bidhan Chandra Roy of Assam’, has been captured in a biopic, which, its makers hope, will instill the doctor’s ideals of serving the poor and the needy among the youth.

Titled “Lokabandhoo” (Friend of The People), the Assamese film, directed by Dhiraj Kashyap and conceived and produced by noted homeopathic doctor Dilip Ghoshal, premiered at the ongoing 21st Kolkata International Film Festival’s ‘Indian Select’ section.

“The film will not only preserve Barooah’s legacy but also inspire future generations to serve the poor and needy with unflinching devotion,” Kashyap told IANS over the phone from Assam.
