Assamese cinema , also known as Jollywood cinemas, is cinema in the Assamese language , watched primarily in Assam , India. The industry was born in when Jyoti Prasad Agarwala released his movie Joymoti. Since then Assamese cinema has developed a slow-paced, sensitive style, especially with the movies of Bhabendra Nath Saikia and Jahnu Barua. Despite its long history and its artistic successes, for a state that has always taken its cinema seriously, Assamese cinema has never really managed to break through on the national scene despite its film industry making a mark in the National Awards over the years. Although the beginning of the 21st century has seen Bollywood -style Assamese movies hitting the screen, the industry has not been able to compete in the market, significantly overshadowed by the larger industries such as Bollywood. The origins of Assamese cinema can be traced back to Rupkonwar Jyotiprasad Agarwala , who was also a noted poet, playwright, composer and freedom fighter.
