Scenes of 'The Last Kiss' scissored – still not suitable for younger audience

The censor board of Nepal was not happy with the content of a movie known for vulgar dialogue and excessive sex scenes. The Nepali movie, ‘The Last Kiss’, named after a 2006 Hollywood movie is told to be full of kiss scenes, bed scenes, and vulgar dialogues.

We have posted the censor certificate of the movie in our Nepali blog in which, the certificate mentions two ‘vulgar’ words to delete. It also mentions a ‘kiss scene to delete’ and a scene in which ‘a tent is shown
shaking’ is to be deleted as well.

Even after the deletion of these scenes, the movie is still not considered to be suitable for the 16 year-olds and youngers. The movie features Puskar Jung Thapa and Shovita Simkhada in leading roles.
