As a result of the fear in Nepali movie makers, caused by Nepali political situation, a lot of movies have postponed their movie release date. Some awaited movies like ‘Apabad’ and ‘Malati Ko Bhatti’ are notable among the postponed Nepali movies. Now, another most awaited movie, ‘Highway’ has also announced that it’s release date has been postponed. The movie was supposed to be released on Ashad 1st.
According to the movie’s Facebook page, the release date was postponed due to the current political situation in our country. ‘Highway’ has been one of the most awaited movies because
of its selection in Berlin Film Festival and its international popularity. The movie is said to be made on the story of current political situation and hardships caused by near-sighted political forces.
As far as we know, ‘Highway’ shows the problems created on the life of different peoples due to regular strikes (Nepal bandh). And due to the similar fear of Nepal bandh, Highway had postponed its release date. Directed by Deepak Rauniyar, the movie features Karma, Saugat Malla, Reecha Sharma, Dayahang Rai, and Binaya Shrestha in lead role. The revised release date of Highway is yet to be fixed.
