In addition to its screening at the Dhaka International Film Festival, the film’s producer Mrinal Bin Qutub, director Rosy Bora, and scriptwriter Kushal Gogoi were specially honored by the festival committee. The film was viewed by over 250 spectators at the London Rainbow Film Festival. Notably, Rosy Bora received the Second Best Director award at an international festival in Turkey. The film was also screened at an international festival in Germany.

‘The Last Honour’ sheds light on the untold yet moving and inspiring story of an unsung hero during the pandemic outbreak—a valiant Chandal who sacrificed his own safety to tirelessly and single-handedly cremate more than 1,700 COVID-19 victims in Guwahati. Despite his remarkable resilience and selflessness, his sacrifices largely went unnoticed.

The scriptwriter and chief assistant director of ‘The Last Honour’ is Kushal Gogoi. The cast includes Prayash Phukan, Jina Baishya, Rajib Kro, and Progyashree Hazarika, among others. The film’s music is scored by Sourav Mahanta, edited by Ratan Sil Sarma, and features cinematography by Chandra Kumar Das.
