Nepali Movie – Jism
Starring – Archana Paneru, Surendra Budhathoki, Subhekshya Thapa etc.
Director – Raju Giri
A movie made under Raju Giri Production, the movie ‘Jism’ is the first movie the controversial actress Archana Paneru signed. The debut movie of Archana however became another movie titled ‘Chhesko’ as the movie was released before ‘Jism’. Both ‘Chhesko’ and ‘Jism’ flopped.
The director signed in Archana after she became popular after she wanted to become a model like Sunny Leone. The movie was named ‘Jism’, to indicate that it was similar to Sunny Leone’s Bollywood debut. But, by the time of the release of the movie the relation between the actress and the director turned sour and she didn’t participate in the promotion of the movie. The movie features the cinematography of Rameshowr Karki, editing by Mitra Dev Gurung and music by Yogesh Kaji.
Star Cast of ‘Jism’
The movie features new actors – Archana and Surendra Budhathoki in leading roles. The director Raju Giri is known for being the director whose relationship with the actresses turns sour as the movie nears the completion. The history repeated in ‘Jism’ and Archana didn’t show up in the dubbing. He had to use somebody else’s voice in the moive. Archana didn’t promote the movie and even told that it wasn’t her movie at all. She threatened to complain the Raju Giri and the production to block the release of the movie.
The only attraction of the movie was the popularity of Archana. But, by the time of the release her popularity has diminished to a very low point. She was found to lack acting and dancing skills. The movie features Surendra Budhathoki, a debut actor, opposite to Archana Paneru.
After the failure of ‘Jism’ and ‘Chhesko’, released one year ago (release news of ‘Jism’) Archana hasn’t signed in any more movies. She has started a dance bar in Kathmandu in partnership with her mother and a friend.
