Summary: Based on Lakhminath Bezbaruah's play Joymati Kunwari.
The Assamese cinema debut feature made in an improvised studio built by Jyotiprasad Agarwala on the Bholaguri tea estate. Set in 17th-C Assam, it tells of the sacrifice of Joymati, a medieval princess who is tortured and killed by the evil prime minister for refusing to betray her husband. The event is interpreted in contemporary patriotic terms and calls for a greater harmony between the people of the hills and the plains (the former represented by Dalimi, a Naga tribesman who shelters the fugitive Prince Gadapani). Available footage was used in Bhupen Hazarika's commemorative film Rupkonwar Jyotiprasad Aru Joymati (1976) devoted to Agarwala.
