According to the Internet Movie Database, ‘Aamis’ is about “two chaste lovers who bow down to social taboos and repress their feelings, but doing so pushes them towards a horrific crime.”
The film, which has already been screened in film festivals across the world, and in several film fests across India, features the actors Lima Das, Arghadeep Baruah, and Neetali Das.
