This week’s release is interesting – a clash between the highly expected comedy movie ‘Resham Filili’ and award winner movie ‘Jhola’. The movie ‘Jhola’ was previously released, before it won Best Actress Award in SAARC Film Festival.
The movie ‘Resham Filili’ won the hearts of many by its music and catchy tune. Everybody’s favorite ‘Jalama…’ has become an instant hit and various cover versions of the song were made and shared in YouTube. For the first time in the history of Nepali movie ‘Resham Filili’ has made more than 50 percent advance booking in the multiplex theaters in Kathamndu.
In the initial announcement of the ‘Kismat’ sequel ‘Kismat 2’, director Shyam Bhattarai was named the director. The announcement was made during the birthday celebration of the actress Shilpa Pokharel in December last year. In a latest report, Shyam is replaced by ‘Hawaldar Suntali’ director Rishi Lamichane.

Shyam Bhattarai is currently in USA. He went there on April 10 and is not expected to return back until the start of the shooting of ‘Kismat 2’. That is the reason behind the change in the director of the movie. But, others believe that the success of ‘Hawaldar Suntali’ has helped Rishi to gain confidence from Chhabi. Whatever may be the case, Shyam Bhattarai has been removed from their movies by both Chhabi Raj Ojha and Rekha Thapa. The direction agreement between Chhabiraj Films and Rishi Lamichane was made on April 23.
The third movie out of the seven movies announced by Gopi Krishna Movies has been inaugurated on April 22. The movie titled ‘Yo Pagal Man’ is going to feature Gauri Malla, Sagun Shahi and Barsha Siwakoti with Binod Neupane. The movie is going to be directed by Kalyan Adhikari. Kalyan was the assistant director of the Nirak Poudel’s movie ‘Homework’.
Gopi Krishna Movies is planning to release seven new movies this year. Nirak Poudel, the son of Uddav Poudel had directed the first in the series, ‘Homework’. The second movie was supposed to be Karishma Manandhar‘s ‘Falgu. But, when Karishma decided to go solo, Uddav announced ‘Thamel dot com’ in Holi. The shooting of ‘Thamel dot com’ is currently going on.
