The pressing need for any filmmaker is a writer with a strong visual and aesthetic sense. The theory that the screenplay is paramount holds perfectly true in the case of ‘Othello’. Those who have seen the film are highly impressed with the script, its character delineation and plot structure. It was a well-deserved recognition when Ranjit Sarma received the Best Screenplay Award in 2014 in the Indian Cine Film Festival for the film. He was discerned by a distinct group of filmmakers for his aesthetic sensibilities. He has written screenplays for several critically acclaimed and award-winning films, most notably Bidyut Chakraborty’s ‘Rag-Birag’ and ‘Nisiddha Nadi’, Manju Bora’s ‘Baibhav’ and ‘Anya Ek Jatra’, Sanjeev Hazorika’s ‘Mimangsa’, etc. One rarely hears of anyone being held in such high esteem by veteran and contemporary filmmakers.
