Axone is a Hindi movie directed by Nicholas Kharkongar.

For the uninitiated, Axone is a northeastern fermented product derived from soybean, packed in banana leaves. It darkens on aging. Axone is known for its pungent odour and is used in non-vegetarian dishes. The Axone film sarcastically criticizes the societal attitude towards people of the North East, especially the fairer sex.


Axone film travels in the unexplored areas of North East Indian culture. It portrays the struggle of people from north east in Hindi speaking land and its ramifications. The crux of the Axone movie is marriage and marital feast preparation sprinkled with comedy. Nicholas Kharkongar has written the script.


Everyone in the movie has realized their roles and done well. Especially Lanuakum Ao and Lin Laishram have excelled in their characters and shoulder the film. Adil Hussain, Sunit Tandon, Vivek Mansukhani and Cyndy Khojol make a special appearance in Axone movie Netflix.


The background score is rendered by Tajdar Janaid. Anshuman Mukherjee is the music supervisor. Songs are penned by Papon, Mangka Mayanglambam, Umakanta Biragi. The music and songs bring nostalgic memories of northeast marital songs.

Cinematography, special effects, and editing

Rasber Baruah has handled the camera nicely. Unerring Suresh Pai has edited beautifully. The Axone full movie has a total running time of 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Direction and Production

Director Nicholas Kharkongar deserves applause for choosing an unexplored theme in Bollywood. Axone film is presented by Yoodlee films and Saregama. Vikram Mehra and Siddharth Anand Kumar have produced the film. Gaurav Sharma has written the dialogues. As Axone means pungent odour, the dialogues are also equally strong. Dialogues satirically portray racist remarks, few real incidents, and the fact that Hindi heartland considers people from the northeast as “Chinese”.  They in return vent their ager on the “f***ing Indians”.
