On Friday – February 3, 2017 three new Nepali movies are releasing in theatre. None of these movies were much talked about before the release. The movies sound foreign than Nepali movies. The movies ‘Parinaam’ and ‘Ramjane’ sound like Bollywood movies and ‘Three Monkeys’ sounds like an English movies.
The movie by Narayan Ghimire features Mukesh Dhakal, Sarika Ghjimire, Jharana Risal and Kisan Sunar. The movie by Cinemakers banner is directed by Hari Parajuli.

Nepali viewers tend to keep themselves away from foreign sounding Nepali movies. I hope, these movies are exceptions and will be embraced by the viewers. In addition to names, the artists in the movies are not known to the Nepali audience. Although Mukesh Dhakal and Dinesh Sharma are well known actors, their scope in the film industry has already been devaluated. Other artists don’t appeal to the public either.
The trailer of ‘Three Monkeys has been watched the most in YouTube. But, that number is not promising either. Based on the response to the trailers, none of these movies are promising based on the online traffic. If only a few people are interested in watching trailers – for free, there is a very slim chance that people will pay to visit theatres and watch the movies. All the best to the new releases.
