Nepali Film – Jung Bahadur Ko Coat
Starring – Anup Baral, Bimles Adhikari, Suchitra Acharya etc.
Director – Aashish Bhetwal
The movie was released in November of 2016 (Release news) with superhit film ‘Jatra’. While other film became hit, this film didn’t do well in theatre. The movie introduced an Australian Nepali actress Suchitra Acharya. After the debut film didn’t do well and she was engulfed in a scandal before the film’s release, she hasn’t done any more movies. The movie is a presentation of Khadka & Sons Cine Industry banner. The movie was awarded a PG certificate by the Censor Board of Nepal. The movie is made about an ancient coat of the first Rana prime minister of Nepal. The movie is a crime thriller movie – an attempt to steal the ancient coat.
Watch the film:
Two new movies have released in theater on November 11, 2016 – ‘Jatra’ and ‘Jung Bahadur Ko Coat’. Director Pradeep Bhattarai’s movie ‘Jatra’ is a comedy movie different from it’s competing action movie ‘Jung Bahadur ko Coat’.
The movie ‘Jatra’ is produced by the ‘Talakjung VS Tulke’ producer, Rabindra Singh Baniya. Baniya was featured as ‘the Hanuman’ character in ‘Pashupati Prasad’. The movie is the debut movie of the director Pradeep Bhattarai. Battarai had worked in the movies and television serials directed by Madan Krishan Shrestha and Hari Bamsha Acharaya (MaHa Jodi) as an assistant director. Two main characters feature Bipin Karki and Rabindra Singh Baniya (Bhasme of ‘Pashupati Prasad’ and Hanuman respectively).
You can watch ‘Pashupati Prasad’ the full movie.
The entries of Non Resident Nepali (NRN) actresses in the Nepali movie industry is a new trend. So far, there are seven Nepali film actresses who have their permanent homes abroad. If India is to be considered foreign and residents in India are to be considered NRN, the number can go up considerably. But, I am excluding residents of South Asia for this article. I think, Nepali communities in India like Sikkim and Darjeeling are not foreign. We have never thought Niruta Singh, Tripti Naadkar, Tulsi Ghimire, or Sushmita KC as foreign actresses although they have their parental home in India.
All of these NRN actresses are Nepali actresses and, I have no intention to alienate them. I wish more NRN actors and actress enter Nepali movie industry. A video report on 7 NRN actresses:
Let me discuss in detail about each of the 7 actresses:
Actress Prapti Ghimire, a resident of Germany, debuted in ‘Kathmandu’. Prapti had also won a debut actress award at that time. But, after ‘Kathmandu’ she didn’t return back to the Nepali movie industry.
UPDATE: JBKC producer Yogendra has claimed that the videos were fake and the person who created them had tried to blackmail him asking $2,000 for the video. Yogendra also shared the screenshots of the communication with the blackmailer. Screenshots of the communication are posted at the end. The original post continues:
Two videos probably taken by the Nepali actress living in Australia, Suchitra Acharya, have surfaced in fake Facebook account right after she lost her mobile phone. The activities recorded in the video seem to be recorded by actress of forthcoming movie ‘Jung Bahadur ko Coat’.
A video report:
According to report published in Onlinekhabar, one of the video shows the producer Yogendra Khadka having a video chat with a woman and playing with himself. In another video Suchitra’s husband is seen similarly playing with himself. The video of Yogendra was released by creating a fake account by Yogendra’s name and the video of Suchitra’s husband, Niranjan Baskota, was released on the fake account created under her own name.
