Kaya: Assam’s First-ever Web Series on YouTube

Assam is all geared up to make its debut into the world of web series with an engaging and intriguing story that is sure to entice its audience. The series would be broadcasted on YouTube.

The web series genre, though still at its nascent stage, is creating a space for young, independent filmmakers to present their work in the digital medium. Now, Assam is all set to witness its first-ever web-series, which could well set a new trend. Titled ‘Kaya’, the serial, planned as a 100-episode series, will be shown on the popular video-sharing site – YouTube, in the last week of July.

A tale of mystery and horror, ‘Kaya’s story, script, dialogue and direction is by Surajit Hatimuria, who hails from Nazira in Sivasagar district. A number of episodes have already been shot in different locations of Nazira and Guwahati. If this web-series somehow hits it off with the viewers, it will open up more possibilities for emerging filmmakers to produce such shows in the future.

‘Kaya’ revolves around the stories of three friends, who live in a rented apartment, where they often find themselves clueless while trying to adjust themselves to their new surroundings. The unusual quietness that prevails all along is unnerving. The owner’s household also comprises of a son and a daughter, but they scarcely ever talk or engage in any discussion. The secret love of the youths for the same girl in the house produces some humorous elements too, amidst the tension.
