Ji Golpor Sesh Nai (Never Ending Stories) is a 2019 Indian anthology film in the Assamese language consisting of three stories by celebrated writers Guy de Maupassant, Homen Borgohain and Honoré de Balzac and directed by three directors Prodyut Kumar Deka, Prasant Saikia and Utpal Datta respectively with the central theme being loneliness.
An anthology film is a sub-genre of films consisting of several different short films, often tied together by only a single theme, premise, or brief interlocking event. Such an attempt in film has been taken for the first time in Northeast of India. Solitary, Madness or isolated from others links the three stories of Ji Golpor Sesh Nai.
Prodyut Kumar Deka has directed films such as Dhunia Tirutabur, Samiran Barua Ahi Ase, Surjasta and Borosi.  Prasant Saikia made his debut with Rum Vodka Whiskey while Utpal Datta is a National Award-winning film critic and director of short films like By Lane 2, Through Trust and Fear etc.
Production[edit | edit source]
The film is produced by Pallabi Borah, Krishna Kalita and Namrata Datta for Arc Lights, R S Studio and U D Foundation respectively. Ratul Barman is the cinematographer, sound design by Bijoy Kumar Nath, editing by Sanjib Talukdar while Debashish Goswami has scored the background music. The film's logo has been designed by Kolkata-based artist and illustrator Sourish Mitra. The principal photography of the film started in mid April and ended in June, 2018. The post production of the film was completed in early 2019.
Critical Reception[edit | edit source]
A special show of the film was held on 18th April, 2019 at Jyotichitrabon (Film Studio) Society, the only makeshift studio of Northeast India and all three segments of the film have generally been praised by the national media. 
Eminent Indian critic Vishwanath Subramaniam commented: Eclectic, experimental and enterprising, Ji Golpor Ses Nai (Never Ending Stories) is an engaging and ensemble triptych of tantalizing tales told with a deft touch of cinematic acumen. Inspired by three different short stories, each of the strand, which runs into half hour plus narration, is knit by the common denominator of death and a rumination on life and living by the three men that figure in them.
