A Mero Hajur 2 trailer review, why is the movie important?

The second movie of actress Samragyee RL Shah is ready to release. The movie is special because of at least the following three reasons:

  • The movie marks the debut of well known actress Jharana Thapa as a director.
  • The movie is the second movie of one of the most talked about actress Samragyee RL Shah. Her first movie ‘Dreams’ created a huge image of her in the film industry. This movie is expected to define the career of Samragyee in the Nepali movie industry.
  • The movie is the sequel of a hit movie ‘A Mero Hajur’ of Jharana Thapa. It is particularly important because the sequel of another hit movie ‘Darpan Chhaya’ – ‘Darpan Chhaya 2’ flopped recently. The sequel of another hit movie ‘Loot’ also couldn’t live up to the expectation of the viewers.

The third reason is really important in the Nepali movie industry because, there had been a flood of sequel movies. It was not only successful movie even the sequels of flop movies like ‘Bindaas’ had been made more than once.  But, the sad truth is that many sequels have failed to attract the viewers to the theatre.

Nepali Movies made on popular books and stories. Will Summer Love be successful?

Many flopped, with a few exceptions:

  • Parijat’s novel ‘Sirishko Phool‘ was one of the best novel in the history of Nepali literature. The award winning novel was made into a movie by a Japanese director. But, the movie version of the book flopped.
  • Last year, a movie titled ‘Seto Bagh‘ was released. The movie was made on the story of a very popular novel by Diamond Shumsher JBR ‘Seto Bagh’. The movie however couldn’t re-create the charms of the literary work and flopped miserably. A TV serial of the same book was also shot at the time of the movie. I have no information on the fate of the TV serial.
  • Writer Karna Shakya wrote a book titled ‘Pal‘ and then made it into a movie by the same name. The book was fairly popular but, the movie wasn’t much successful.
  • A Gopal Prasad Mainali’s very popular book ‘Masan‘ was also made into a movie by the same name. The art movie also didn’t come anywhere near the popularity of the book.
  • Krishna Dharabashi’s story ‘Jhola‘ was also made into a movie and released in 2014. The movie was successful in winning the top actress award in SAARC Film Festival and was also a commercial success.

Video :

Those were some of the latest Nepali movie made on well known books and stories by well known literary figures. Apart from ‘Jhola’ no other movies were successful. Now, another book – ‘Summer Love’ is being made into a movie. The questions are being raised if the film makers could justify the story of the book or not. Although the team is credible and the artists look promising, we would need to wait till the release to know if it will be as successful as the book itself.

  • Kabaddi Kabaddi – Janti Jane Din (The day to go in a marriage proceeding)
  • Loot 2 – Feri Lootne Din (The day of robbery again)

  • Resham Filili – Fililli Hune Din
  • Utsav – Celebration Begins
  • Adhakatti – Bada Dashain ma Hasne Hoina ta (Don’t you want to laught in Dashain
