As a result of the fear in Nepali movie makers, caused by Nepali political situation, a lot of movies have postponed their movie release date. Some awaited movies like ‘Apabad’ and ‘Malati Ko Bhatti’ are notable among the postponed Nepali movies. Now, another most awaited movie, ‘Highway’ has also announced that it’s release date has been postponed. The movie was supposed to be released on Ashad 1st.
According to the movie’s Facebook page, the release date was postponed due to the current political situation in our country. ‘Highway’ has been one of the most awaited movies because
of its selection in Berlin Film Festival and its international popularity. The movie is said to be made on the story of current political situation and hardships caused by near-sighted political forces.
As far as we know, ‘Highway’ shows the problems created on the life of different peoples due to regular strikes (Nepal bandh). And due to the similar fear of Nepal bandh, Highway had postponed its release date. Directed by Deepak Rauniyar, the movie features Karma, Saugat Malla, Reecha Sharma, Dayahang Rai, and Binaya Shrestha in lead role. The revised release date of Highway is yet to be fixed.
As we have mentioned in the pre-release review, this movie is an addition to movies following the new business success mantra of Nepali movie industry – sex. Released all over Nepal ‘The Last Kiss’ uses sex scenes and vulgar words to attract young people in the theater. The movie is produced by Yuvraj Khatri and directed by BB Phuyal and features Sovita Simkhada, Puskar Jung Thapa and Suresh Chaudhary in the leading roles. The censor board has granted adult certificate, not suitable for the viewers 16 years old or younger.
‘The Last Kiss’ has a suspense story. Movie starts with the death of a couple who had visited a forest for a romantic union. Another couple, Akash and Arya, went to the same forest to celebrate their first anniversary. A gang led by a character named Michael kills Akash but, their attempt to kill Arya was unsuccessful. The whole movie is about how Arya sought revenge from Michael and his gang. I don’t want to spoil the movie viewing experience by unveiling the real suspense of why Aakash was killed.
Nepali movie ‘The Last Kiss’ is releasing on May 25, 2012. The movie directed by BB Phuyal features Shovita Simkhada, Puskar Jung Thapa, and Suresh Chaudhary in leading roles.
The movie features the music direction of Santosh Rajbanshi and Nagendra Rajbanshi, choreography of Govind Rai, story and script of Raj Sirish.
In a latest news, popular Nepali singer Rajesh Payal Rai is also trying his magical voice in Bhojpuri songs.
Nepali artists have been trying their luck in Bhojpuri entertainment industry for a long time. One of the most successful of them all is Biraj Bhatt who has established himself as an action superstar in Bhojpuri film industry. From past experience, success in Nepal doesn’t guarantees success Bhojpuri industry. So, we need to wait for some time to see if Rajesh can be successful in Bhojpuri entertainment industry or not.
T-Series music company is releasing Rajesh’s debut Bhojpuri album titled "Shiela Ke Jawani".
Nepal bandh (shutdown) enforced by Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NEFIN) and Indigenous Nationalities Joint Struggle Committee (INJSC) to press their demands for identity/ethnicity-based federalism has crippled life across the country on Sunday.
It has ceased transportation across the country and marketplaces, educational institutions, offices and industries in the Valley were closed. Police also detained dozens of NEFIN and INJSC cadres from Prithvi Chowk. Police had used tear-gas too to take the situation under control.
The bandh enforcers vandalized two motorcycles (Ba 30 Pa 8309 and Ba 50 Pa 5389) belonging to reporters of The Kathmandu Post Pranab Kharel and Ankit Adhikari at Sankhamul accusing Kantipur of being biased towards the community while covering the news.

Who could think that the man whom you trusted so much that you married without taking consent of parents can lead your life to an end? But such thing has happened with Ruby Tandukar of Bijeshwori Kathmandu who suicides after not being able to tolerate the continued torture by her in-laws in a most reprehensible manner on Saturday.
According to police, the postmortem report shows that she was brutally beaten, body was full of injury and backbone was broken. Ruby was found hang in ceiling fan in the room and was taken to Norvic hospital.
Ruby’s parental home was just 50 metre far. Yet they knew it only after villagers inform them. Her husband, Prashant Tandukar has been detained and has accepted that he has beaten her on Friday, according to police.
In 2063, Ruby escaped from her home to get married with Prashant. So, her parents were annoyed with her such marriage that they invited her to parental home only after 7 months of marriage and gave her clothes and some jewellery.
According to her father Rajendra Malakar, she was tortured from 2065, 2 years after her marriage and was able to escape from home to call them. Ruby was in a very pity condition and her clothes were torn that time. So, we sought the help of Maiti Nepal and also complained in police for her safety but to no avail, added Malakar. Rs 50000 cash was also given when Ruby said she was sleeping on floor. Malakar further added that she might have been demanded many more, but, as the marriage was love marriage, she might not have said anything to them.
Finally, Ruby’s life ended on Sunday morning in the hospital.
