In spite of the government instruction to the film theaters not to release the movie, Rekha Thapa‘s new movie ‘Himmatwali‘ is released in theaters all over Nepal including Gopi Krishna Theater in Kathmandu.
The government had asked the theater owners to ‘implement the agreement’ and release new Nepali films only on Fridays in theaters in Kathmandu. But the theater owners have broken the decade-long trend of releasing new movies on Fridays by releasing Himmatwali in one of the theaters in Kathmandu.
The producer, director and actress of the movie Rekha Thapa has stated that the movie was released in Gopi Krishna theater and it is houseful in its first show. Based on its promotion and festive environment, the initial turn in in theater is going to be strong. The collection in later days will depend on how the public perceive the movie.
