Talking about the song, singer Papon says, “It was an enriching experience singing the same song in Hindi and Assamese. It is my earnest hope that stories from the Northeast through song and film are enjoyed by the rest of the country. I hope the audiences connect to both the versions and equally love the song.”
III Smoking Barrels which has been shot on a grand visual scale beautifully intertwines three issues that beset the Northeast India, namely, children involved in armed conflicts, drug addiction and abuse which is a big threat to Indian youth and animal poaching and the necessity of wildlife conservation with each of them exploring a different stage of human life.
