from the edge of the world…
‘The most relevant film of today’s time…’
– Anurag Kashyap
Hidden in the mountains of the Himalayas,
Malana was like a lost world. A reticent
community fostering a primitive existence
in harmony with nature and harbouring their
own unique model of democracy of consensus
where they do select and not elect!
They have also been producing some of
the best quality hashish.
A real life story of transition; an ancient
civilization being invaded and obliterated
by the modern democracy. Narrated in an
epic structure, a visual essay from the edge
of the world with a universal message of
trust, peace and eternal unity.
critical controversial courageous
‘I went for an ancient democracy and world’s best hashish
but what silently pulled me towards Malana was my destiny.’
Amlan Datta
A graduate of Film & Television Institute of India
(FTII), Pune. Has been making films as an
independent filmmaker and producer under
production company Animagineer with his
brother Anirban. They have been conferred
Indian National Film Awards thrice.
‘Bom’ is his first feature length film.

in prestigious Berlinale in 2008.
created news everywhere it went
…the documentary never reeks of partisanship, with all
points of view represented equitably. …a rare sensitivity to
the matter at hand, Bom ... Turns into compelling cinema.
The 40-year-old director
hopes that the government
will make special sanctions
for the people of Malana,
who along with their
sovereignty have lost their
means to a livelihood.
‘One of the best documentaries I have seen in a while’ – Subhra Gupta
Very few Indian documentaries concentrate
so much on visual narrative.
Stunning…breaks the boundaries of the documentary form in a way…
National recognition for the film is a victory not just
for Datta but for the simple people of Malana.
‘BOM’ is a poignant, thought-provoking film.
Watch it and get enlightened.
not just a film… a life

… The movie stops with an open debate for its
viewers but Amlan's journey is still on. He has been
helping many villagers take to alternative practices,
so that their dependence on hash trade goes down.
Part of the earnings from the film release goes into funding
projects of Bom Bom
