I wrote a profile of the movie ‘Dying Candle’ (Nibhna Lageko Diyo) earlier. One of my friends in Twitter had suggested about the movie – being impressed by the trailer, I had written the profile in September, last year. One and a half hours long movie is about the relationship between two siblings. The movie features Sirjana Subba, Lakpa Singhi Tamang, Bidhya Karki, Saugat Malla, and Arpan Thapa in leading roles.
