Nepali Movie – Kampan Starring – Anchila Basnet, Sitaram Timilsina, Anil Kumar Budhathoki, Anu Parajuli, Rajesh Dhunga etc. Director – Dinesh Poudel
The movie ‘Kampan’ is made on a story of earthquake of 2015. The movie directed by Dinesh Poudel was released on June 17, 2016. Although the movie is based on one of the most serious incident in the modern history of Nepal, its theatre presence wasn’t felt. The movie might have been victim of the released of hit movie ‘Gajalu’ which was released a week before ‘Kampan’ release.
To make it easier for our viewers, I have collected all the sequels of the one of the most popular Nepali movie franchise, ‘Nai Nabhannu La’. Although the initial response was lukewarm, the movie piked up in later days.
The first sequel of ‘Nai Nabhannu La’ was released in August of 2010. One of the movie theatres, Hira Ratna, had removed the movie on the second day of it’s release because of low turn out of the viewers (read my report of 2010 – Did viewers say “Nai” to “Nai Na Bhannu La” the next day?). But, the musical love story movie turned out to be a blockbuster movie and did a good business in the theaters inside and outside of Kathmandu valley (Read the Year end report of the movies in 2010). Let me compare the four sequels of the movie in a tabular form:
Although I have all of these movies in separate post, I am compiling them all in one place so that you can enjoy them at the same time. Please comment which one do you like the most and why.
In Laxmi Puja, ‘Prem Geet’ actress Pooja Sharma cooked Sel Roti, the traditional rice-bread cooked in special occasions like Dashain and Tihar. Cooking Sel Roti is not easy job. Based on the photos Pooja shared, she had cooked pretty good sel roti. Using the photo one of the prank groups of Facebook wrote something like – “if she could cook a perfect sel roti, she is good enough to marry.”
In response, Pooja wrote, “Please don’t use our pictures in wrong way or for wrong purpose.” Somebody shared the picture in question:
