Village Rockstars is a marvellous picturization of a village girl who, with her vibrant spirit, achieves her dream of having her own rock band. The movie has been written, directed, produced, shot and designed by Rima.

Starring Bhanita Das, Basanti Das, Kulada Bhattyacharya, Manabendra Das and Boloram Das, Village Rockstars is woven around Dhunu’s pursuit of an electric guitar in Assam’s Chhayagaon village. The film challenges gender stereotypes in an organic way.

The film opens with the children having fun as a rock band. As the story progresses, it captures the whole gamut of fun that these rural children are having despite living a life of poverty and deprivation.

65 awardees skip event after discovering that only 11 awards would be presented by President.

Union Ministers Smriti Irani and Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore were also present during the 65th National Film Awards ceremony.
