The latest buzz about this film, that took almost two years to complete, is that it will be made available to select mediapersons in Lunglei tomorrow at around 1.00 pm IST for the final preview.
“This will be the final preview before the release,” the source added.
Shooting of the film was completed back on July 13, 2010, but the processing took almost two years.
The budget for this film is said to be around Rs 7 lakh when the shooting began.
“The filmmakers have spent more than the budget and we expect to do quite well despite our fears that some scrupulous elements might make fake copies of it,” the film’s insider said.
The film which involves hundreds of volunteers besides utilities, vehicles and others is expected to hit the screen soon but no fix date has been announced.
“Khawnglung Run is a historical film set in the 1850s but focus will be mainly on the love angle between Chala and Thangieven on the backdrop of the war between the Northern and Southern chiefs. Khawnglung is a village in Lunglei district, about 147 km from the state capital Aizawl.
For making this film, around 30 huts were constructed and later burned down. The number people involved in this film is said to be somewhere around 400.
The shooting was done during the monsoon season and the crew had to undergo a lot of hardship. One person had to be admitted to a hospital.
Shooting of the film was done mainly in and around Lunglei, Thenzawl, Vanva River, Mat River and Tlawng River.
