Manipuri Film Lembi Leima won Best Film (Gold) at the 1st Northeast Film Festival, Mumbai 2023

Manipuri Film Lembi Leima won Best Film

Manipuri film Lembi Leima has been creating waves in the industry for its exemplary content. Even before its official release, the film has won huge accolades at various film festivals.

Just a few days back, Lembi Leima had its World Premiere at the Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne. Also it was presented at 1st The First Northeast India International Film Festival, Dimapur where it bagged the Best Regional Film award, Best Actress and Best Supporting award. And now the film has bagged yet another award at the 1st Northeast Film Festival 2023, held at the NFDC building Mumbai, presented by the NDFC and The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting.

Opening about the honour Bala Hijam Nigthoujam says, “I feel delighted to see Lembi Leima is recognised in many of the national & international film festivals. The film has been made with so much hard work and love I feel encouraged to get this acknowledgement from NEFF. I also want to thank all the team members of Lembi Leima who worked day and night for it.”

Producer and Actor Bijou Thaangjam gives a major credit of the film’s success to the director Mayank Pratap Singh who dedicated to the making of the film regardless of the language barrier and other challenges.“It was easy to make the film as Meiteilon is a totally different language for Mayank and so is the culture. But Mayank made sure he got the right representation with proper research and hard work. If it wasn’t about his unconditional dedication, the film wouldn’t have been made,” adds Bijou.

Lembi Leima highlights the tale of human greed and perseverance with an ultimate fate.

Lembi Leima is produced under the banners Cicada Film Production and RJ Star Production. The film is directed by Mayank Pratap Singh and has Bala Hijam Nigthoujam, Bijou Thaangjam, Naveen Jagbir Sandhu, Khonykar Khuraijam & Niranjoy Luwangcha as the star cast. Lembi Leima will soon have its Manipur Premiere and start streaming on a leading OTT platform.
