Assamese Film Actresses, Indian Cinema
Assamese Film Actresses have carved a niche for themselves in the history of regional films. They are talented and credible and have susceptible style.
 Assamese Film Actresses since the inception of Assamese Films have contributed significantly with their brilliant performances and charming screen presence. Assamese cinema actually started in 1935 when Jyoti Prasad Agarwala released his movie Joymoti. Since then Assamese cinema has developed its characteristic slow-paced susceptible style, especially with the brilliant movies of Bhabendra Nath Saikia and Jahnu Barua.

However despite the long history of Assamese cinema and its artistic successes, their talented actresses are to be credited at a large extent. Assamese cinema has never really managed to make the breach on the national screen despite its film industry marking a benchmark in the National Awards over the years. Although the beginning of the 21st century has seen Bollywood styles, Assamese movies have its distinctive trend on screen. Assamese film industry has not been able to compete on the national market and is significantly overshadowed by the larger industries like Bollywood.
