A Nepali movie named ‘Kollywood’ is inaugurated in a ceremony held in Kamaladi Ganesh mandir in Kathmandu on Tuesday August 14, 2012.
The movie to be made on the story of hardships in Nepali movie industry was dragged in controversy for the selection of actresses. Although actress Namrata Shrestha has agreed to do the leading role, another lead actress is yet to be finalized. The actress, Priyanka Karki will only be featured in an item dance in the movie.
A news about a Nepali actor, Shri Krishna Shrestha, starting a business named "Kollywood Planet" left me thinking – is the Nepali movie industry Kollywood?
Although, Shri Krishna Shrestha’s business doesn’t seem much related to the Nepali movie industry, I have a feeling, he does want to represent the Nepali film industry. The name, Kollywood, seems to be inspired by the combination of Kathmandu and Hollywood. But, when I checked the name in Google, there was no reference of Kollywood being related to Nepali (or Kathmandu) film industry, at least, not on the first page.
That means, either we have to forget about the name "Kollywood" to represent our movie industry or, make it more popular by using it more frequently. In this context, let us review what Hollywood is and, what names are inspired by Hollywood:
In the modern time, Hollywood has become an iconic name to represent the US movie industry. The success of Hollywood movies has inspired other film industries to nickname themselves with Hollywood-inspired names.
Hollywood is a district in Los Angeles, California, United States (yes, it’s not a movie industry in itself, as believed popularly). The place situated west-northwest of downtown Los Angeles, got it’s cultural identity as the center of movie studios and movie stars when movie making activities increased in the early 20th century.
