Assamese Movie

The title of the film depicts two words 'Bakor' and 'Putek' where a Bak represents an evil spirit fond of fish that resides in the water and often comes to the surface to attack the humans. In this feature film, Puwal who is the husband of Padma is thought to be a Bak and both of them are ill-treated and tortured by the public. No spoilers intended, the story continues with the struggle of the couple and the story unfolds as a tense psychological thriller. Both Akashdeep & Angurlata were assigned the roles that was equally interesting and challenging but they came off well and their performance was highly applauded by the audience.

The music of Bakor Putek is also good and the song titles are rendered by noted singers like Zubin Garg, Priyanka Bharali and Tarali Sarma. The music is given by Chanra Mudoi and Dr Hitesh Barua while Ajay Phukan is the Assistant Music Director. Overall, this is a very good movie to watch and we recommend this to all the people out there.
