Two new Nepali movies have released on May 26, 2017, in theatre in Nepal – Namrata Shrestha starrer ‘Parva’ and Sohit Manandhar movie ‘Hitler’. It is an interesting clash between two movies.
Nepali film ‘Parva’
The movie movie by Dinesh Raut, ‘Parva’ is considered one of the most awaited movie because of the popularity of one of its song – ‘Kale Dai Kale Dai …’. The song has received more than 11 million views in YouTube at the time of this writing. The movie also features actress Namrata Shrestha – the undisputed top actress of 2016. Dinesh Raut, the director of superhit film ‘Classic’ has directed the movie. Some viewers might be scared to watch the movie because of the blood, violence and thrills. The movie also received positive reviews from the viewers of the premier show held on May 25, 2017.
Parva features Koshish Chhetri and Namrata Shrestha in leading role. The movie is the debut movie of another actress Jebika Karki. In the item song ‘Kale Dai ..’ Mala Limbu and Nischal Basnet are featured. The movie is produced jointly by TV Filmy and Subash Entertainment – produced by Subash Giri and Nikita Poudel. The movie is made on a story about an incident that occurred in a festival (Parva).
The poster of the Nepali movie by Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra and her mother, Dr. Madhu Chopra, was released recently. The movie titled ‘Pahuna’ is produced under the initiation of Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra to produce various movies in the regional languages of India. Earlier, actress Jenisha KC had told that she will be featured in the leading role in the movie. But, the first look poster of the movie doesn’t feature the actress.
The movie is told to be made on the story of kids separated from their parents at the time of Maoist war in Nepal. In the movie, they are fleeing from Nepal to Sikkim and the poster also features three kids living on their own. The poster:
Earlier, Priyanka Chopra had told that she couldn’t be present in the press meets of the movie but, she is very happy to be the producer of the first feature movie of Sikkim. The movie is being made jointly by Priyanka Chopra and her mother Madhu Chopra under Purple Pebble Pictures. She told, “Thank you to the government of Sikkim that has given our small, beautiful movie ‘Pahuna’ such a big support,” Priyanka added, “Its Sikkim’s first feature film. And, I am very very honoured to be the producer tying up with the Government of Sikkim to bring you that.”
Journalist and actress Sandhya KC is being featured in a leading role in her upcoming movie ‘Kamaleko Bihe’. The actress who debuted in super hit film ‘Dreams’. But, Sandhya was featured in a short role in the movie so, the movie couldn’t do any magic to attract the viewers towards her.
Sandhya has apparently tried to use the tried-and-tested method to attract the media – showing off her underwear in press meet.
- Actress Karishma Manandhar had successfully used the tactics and it made news – more than once. (Karishma’s Red and black)
- And actress Priyanka Karki was also successful in creating the buzz by the same tactics. (The issue of Priyanka Karki case took a long time to settle)
- Then, actress Shilpa Pokharel also tried her best – but, it wasn’t much of the news. (Shilpa shows off)
- Benisha Hamal tried it too.
- Actress Jharana Thapa also showed off in one event.
- Namrata Shrestha (Parwa event)
One of the popular actress of the past, Bipana Thapa, is currently in Nepal. She was in Nepal in an effort to promote his sister in the local election held at the end of Baisakh. Bipana’s younger sister, Basana Thapa, was one of the candidates of Nepali Congress as Deputy Mayor of Narayan Municipality of Dailekh district.
Although Bipana and her sister Basana had promoted in the election, Basana couldn’t win the election. She was defeated by CPN (UML) candidate, Sabitra Malla. The vote difference between Sabitri and Basana was only 600.
After the election, Bipana is travelling in different parts of Nepal with her sister and other family members. Bipana has shared photos of them travelling in places like Jumla, Mugu and other beautiful and scenic places. They look pretty happy although Basana was defeated in the election.
Who is Bipana Thapa?
Rekha Thapa’s movie, produced by actress Chhulthim Gurung, Nepali movie ‘Diarry’ is special for Rekha Thapa’s fans. That is because, Rekha is featured in a negative role for the first time in her entire acting career. The movie directed by Anil Yonjan also introduces Sunny Singh, a new actor. At the time the characters played by Chhulthim and Sunny Singh were in deep love, actress Rekha Thapa is featured as a villain.
When actress Chhulthim Gurung debuted in ‘November Rain’ as a character Dalli, she was liked by the viewers. After that she rejected all the acting offers and decided to produce her own movie. She is featured in the leading role in ‘Diarry’. With Rekha, Chhulthim and Sunny Singh other actors in the movie are Dinesh DC, Rajkumar Upreti, Binod Poudel and others.
The movie features the music of Swopnil Sharma, Iman Bikram Shah and Manasraj. The movie features the playback singing of Sugam Pokharel, Rajina Rimal, Swopnil Sharma, Reshma Pun and Manas Raj.

The award winning film, ‘Kalo Photi’ has become another victim of piracy. The movie was pirated in file sharing sites and was recently been live broadcasted in Facebook. The movie was appreciated by the Nepali viewers and was liked in various film festivals in different countries. The movie was pirated at the time the film team was planning to show the movie in different countries.
According to report, the movie was pirated through the Facebook page of Nepali TV UK. The director of the movie, Min Bahadur Bham had commented asking to stop the video. Now, the video is removed from the Facebook page. According to Bham, he is planning to recover the damage from the parties involved in the piracy of the movie.
Although the movie is removed from Facebook, it is still available in file sharing websites. I hope to share the movie as soon as the official version of the movie is released online. Let’s wait till then.
About ‘Kalo Pothi’
The movie ‘Kalo Pothi’ was featured in the 72nd Venice Film Festival and had won the Critics Week award. The movie is made on the story of two kids during the Maoist people’s war.
The competition between the sequels of ‘Prem Geet’ has been quite fierce before the release of the movies. After a week of the release of the title song of ‘Prem Geet 2’ the title song of the another sequel ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ was released. Now, one has released the second song, an item number while another has released an audio jukebox of all the songs from the movie.
Although the first song of ‘Prem Geet 2’ was good enough and became very popular in a short time, I think, the second song is far better in terms of music and the choreography. The first song was popular because of the beautiful location and cinematography, the second most probably will be popular because of the music. Music videos show that the film is promising.
The song titled ‘Motorcycle ma’ features actress Swostima Khadka and Aslesha Thakuri with the lead actor Pradeep Khadka. The song features the voice of Indira Joshi and Pratap Das. The lyrics are written by Rajesh Kumar Shrestha and Babin, music is composed by Alish Karki and choreography by Renasha Rai.
The audio jukebox of the upcoming movie ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ is released. After the success of the title song, the full audiojukebox featuring three songs was released recently. Three songs are different types of songs.
In the audio collection, the first song is ‘Bhanchhu Aaja’ the song previously released featuring Paul Shah and Pooja Sharma. The song featuring Arjun Pokharel’s music has the lyrics of Sudarshan Thapa and voices of Sugam Pokharel and Anju Panta.
The second song is sort of sentimental. The song titled ‘Kaha Chha Ra’ also features Anju Panta and Pramod Kharel’s voices. The lyrics is written by Diggaj Dhoraali.
The last song is a dancing number featuring the music and voice of Arjun Pokharel himself. The lyrics is written by Ambika Sharma.
One of the most awaited movies of the current time, Hemraj BC’s upcoming movie ‘Gangster Blues’ has released the first teaser. The teaser features Ashirman Desraj Joshi, Anna Sharma, Samyam Puri and Rojisha Shahi Thakuri. Ashirman is featured in a gangster looks.
Anna Sharma is the actress of ‘Jerryy’ another superhit movie of Hemraj BC. Hemraj BC had featured Anmol KC in his previous movies but, ‘Gangser Blues’ doesn’t have Anmol but a new actor Ashirman. The youngest son of banker Rabina Desraj, Ashirman is debuting as an actor in the movie. His elder brother, Ayushman Desraj had debuted in ‘Chapali Height 2’. The affair between Ayushman and Priyanka Karki had been one of the most talked about topic in the film industry these days.
The movie ‘Gangster Blues’ is scheduled to release on Bhadra 2.
The cover songs of both the ‘Prem Geet’ sequels – ‘Prem Geet 2’ and ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ were released a while ago. While the music video of ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ was released a week ago, that of ‘Prem Geet 2’ was released 3 weeks ago – they both have similar views, likes and dislikes now. Let’s compare the two songs:
After the huge success of ‘Prem Geet’ the producer and the directors of the movie parted their ways. While the producer Santosh Sen teamed up with the actor Pradeep Khadka, the director Sudarshan Thapa teamed up with the actress Pooja Sharma. They decided to produce their own versions of the sequel.
After Santosh Sen announced the sequel of ‘Prem Geet 2’, the director Sudarshan Thapa and Pooja Sharma announced another sequel titled ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ a few days later. During the NEFTA 2016 award held in Dubai, Paul Shah was announced to romance with Pooja in the movie.
The record breaking South Indian film ‘Bahubali 2’ is running housefull in the second week of its release in Nepal. The craze of the movie has also impressed the ex-royal family in Nepal. According to reports, the royal family members visited CTC Mall, Sundhara to watch the movie on May 5, 2017.
According to the manager of the fill hall, Bikesh Basnet, the ex-royal family had bought 17 tickets to watch the movie. Ex-queen Komal Shah, ex-princess Himani Shah, and her children had watched the movie.
