Two new Nepali movies has released in theatre on Friday, November 3, 2017. One is an awaited movie featuring well known actors, ‘Fateko Jutta’ and another is never-heard-of film, ‘Dhanwan’. In addition to new movies, the last week’s release, ‘Aishwarya’ is also running strong in theatre.
About ‘Fateko Jutta’
The movie is considered one of the most awaited movies of the year because of the star cast and a successful song. The trailer and the song titled ‘I am sorry..’ were well received by the audience. The movie produced by the producer of ‘Chapali Height’ sequels, Arjun Kumar, is directed by Nikesh Khadka. The movie features Saugat Malla, Priyanka Karki, Kemshwor Chaurasiya, Anoj Pandey etc. in main role. Actor Dayahang Rai is featured in a cameo role. Daya’s role was kept a secret by the film makers. They released a poster featuring Dayahang in a Goddess’ role.
Priyanka Karki’s next movie ‘Fateko Jutta’ is releasing this week. But, instead of promoting the movie she has gone to India to be with her boyfriend.
There are a few facts about Nepali film artists and the films before I enter into topic:
- Every artists wants their film to succeed.
- Most of the artists are paid to act/work in the film.
- Every artists set aside time for the shooting according to scheduled.
But, when it comes to promotion:
- Some artists don’t set aside any time for the promotion and have schedule clashes.
- Some make lame excuses of being busy or sick.
- Some don’t respond to producers’ phone and invitation to promotional events.
Why what that? I think, there are at least two reasons the artists are not eager to go in the promotion of the movie. One – they are convinced that the movie will be successful and two – they are not paid for the time they spend for the promotion.
The first look poster of upcoming movie ‘Fateko Jutta’ indicates that the movie is a suspense thriller. The movie dierected by Nikesh Khadka features Saugat Malla, Priyanka Karki, Kameshowr Chaurasiya and Buddhi Tamang in main roles. The dark comedy movie was initially scheduled to release on Bhadra 23 but, the release date was delayed to Kartik 17 (November 3, 2017).
Produced by the ‘Chapali Height’ franchise producer, Arjun Kumar, the movie is made under the banner Arjun Kumar Films in association with Highlights Nepal and Popcorn Pictures.
Fateko Jutta Poster
In the first look poster, a person is shown standing with his hand on the hip. There is no indication on who the person is because the upper portion of the photo is cropped. Wearing torn shoes and a dhoti, there are empty bottles lying around on the floor. There is a jute sack with something inside it. It looks like the person is closely guarding the jute bag.
Although the poster has been successful in creating a little bit suspense, the design however can’t be considered attractive. The level of suspense is also very mild as it doesn’t raise the curiosity level about either who the guy might be or, what might be in the jute bag. While looking at the poster, one doesn’t care much about the identity of the person of the the content in the bag because there is no addition information about them.
The shooting of the movie featuring actress Priyanka Karki and actor Saugat Malla in lead role was started in an event held at Karyabinayak temple in Lalitpur. In the event held on May 18, 2017 the artists and the film crew members worshiped in the temple and the camera. The movie to be made by the ‘Chapali Height’ producer, Arjun Kumar is being directed by Nikesh Khadaka. In addition to Priyanka and Saugat the movie also features actors Buddhi Tamang, Kameshowr Charasiya and others.
Although the shooting was inaugurated in the temple of Lalitpur, actual shooting will start in Birgunj. Although the shooting is yet to start, the release date is already fixed – Kartik 17.
