About “Enter My World”
Enter My World, written and directed by Arenla Subong is expected to be intriguing as it is a new form of musical with an exciting story. Calling it Howey musical, the songs are sung in Naga folk tunes (India) and the script in English. It is full of drama with all its colours – the writer and her assistant on her research venture are caught by some hunters in the jungle and held captives in a Naga village suspecting them to be spies. They are surprised to find themselves in a world of folk era.
The end is electrifying with the tiger spirited man and the boar spirited man confronting each other and the writer and her assistant trying to flee from the village.
Some of the noted actors includes Zhokoi Chuzo- the Naga Bollywood actor, Arenla Subong of Abiogenesis, Ariensa Longchar of Dreams Unlimited, Moa Subong, V.Chishi, Kiry Yimchunger, Toshi Lenda and Daniel Engty.
Other special features in the film are the Chicken Dance by Chakesang Zuve Cultural Club choreographed by Veswozo Phesao and the Sangtam Dance by Kuyingpong Cultural Club choreographed by Shiromong Anar.
