Information for the Audience: 

The film delves into a section of the Assamese society in North-east India threatened by influx of illegal immigrants from across the border. A democratic movement yielding no results, an extremist group emerged. Thirty odd years later the social impact is apparent. Today, in the days of global emergence of rebellion and extremism against illegal influx, the Assamese tale tells many tales.

The film Haanduk has been filmed in actual locales, amongst peoples who have witnessed this uprising.

It is perhaps for the first time that the Moran community of the Assamese society, hitherto  unknown to the world, has been explored in the context of this uprising.

The vast Indian existence is some sort of a miniature globe. Nestled in the north eastern corner of this globe is area whose Mongoloid populace share rites, customs and physical features of South East Asia.
