Dasdhunga, 10 minutes too long – censor board

The Nepali film censor board has objected on some scenes of a movie based on the event of an ‘accident’ killing two top UML leaders, Madan Bhandari and Jivraj Ashrit. The 1993 ‘accident’ happened in a very mysterious circumstances and the only survivor of the accident, driver Amar Lama, was also killed after 10 years by an unidentified killer.


The movie ‘Dasdhunga’, produced by Apil Bista and directed by Manoj Pandit, is based on the incident, named after the accident location, Dasdhunga. The movie is told to be based on reports of various examination committees (Anil Commission, Tuladhar Commission, and Oli Commission) and published news/articles after the incident. The actors in the movie are: Anup Baral (Government Examination Panel), Dayahang Rai (driver Amar Lama), Saugat Malla (foreign agent), Sanchita Luintel (Anup Baral’s wife) etc.

The censor board has asked the producer to cut different scenes from various parts (a total of 10 minutes in length) of the movie to be eligible for public shows. The board has accused that the the conversations in the scenes pose threats to the relationship with neighboring countries.

The incident was surrounded by controversy and now the movie based on the incident is also facing similar controversies before its release. The controversy will surely be beneficial for the movie and the free publicity will pay well if the movie is made decent enough.
