Karbi Anglong gets its due

The beauty of Karbi Anglong district and the gurgling sound of its streams have always attracted filmmaker Dhaniram Tisso. Ever since he won a national award for his first attempt to promote the place, his passion has become even more intense.

“This is what I like doing and it feels good when people know the place through my films,” said the 56-year-old filmmaker, while talking to TOI from Dokmoka, his native place, located some 80 km from Diphu in Karbi Anglong.

In 2007, he brought the beautiful Bheloghat waterfalls, among others, into the limelight through his film ‘Kanghon Killing Chongkret’ which translates into ‘My Dear Tiger Man’. “We are glad that he made a film on this waterfall. Besides being a hit, the film also immensely helped to bring tourists to this spot. We have realized how a film can be a powerful medium,” said Debinson Teron, a local of that area.
