Nepali movie industry is a very strange type of industry. In our film industry, most of the business logics fail economic has the least effect on film making. Because of the lack of professionalism in the industry, personal ego and social status are considered more important than the economic viability of the movie. The announcement of 6 movies on the same day, at the end of the year, can considered one of such examples.
On the last Friday of the year 2072 BS, on Chaitra 26 (April 8, 2016), six different movie makers have announced the release date of their movies. It is interesting that five out of the six movies are yet to go to the floor yet. The movies are:
- Bikash Acharya movie ‘Nai Nabhannu La 4’
- Chhabi Raj Ojha movie ‘Kismat 2’
- Arjun Kumar movie ‘Chapali Height 2’
- Govinda Shahi movie ‘Kaha Chau Kaha 2’
- Rekha Thapa movie ‘Rampyari’
- Gopal Kayastha movie ‘Lootera’
Out of these movies, only the movie ‘Lootera’ has completed its shooting. The movie featuring Nikhil Upreti was previously announced to be released in Tihar but now the release date has been delayed by 5 months. The crew and artists of some of the movies are yet to be determined.
Although the announced release date is 8 months away, the confidence in the film makers is unprecedented. All the movies are awaited movies and are expected to be liked by the viewers. It is interesting, four out of the six movies are sequels of previously successful movies. ‘Nai Nabhannu La 4’ is the record-breaking fourth sequel in Nepali film industry.
