About ‘Kismat 2’
The movie is the sequel of superhit movie ‘Kismat’ featuring Rekha Thapa in leading role. The sequel features the new sweetheart of the producer, Chhabi Raj Ojha. According to Shilpa, the marriage between the two is confirmed and they are waiting for the ‘go-ahead’ message from the astrologer. The marriage rumour between the two helped the movie to get a lot of media attention. Although the success of ‘Lazza’ can also be attributed to a similar rumour during the release of the movie the rumour wasn’t found much effective during the release of their third movie. The original movie featured actress Rekha Thapa with Biraj Bhatt and Aryan Sigdel in leading roles. None of the original cast are repeated in the sequel. The original was written and directed by Ujjwal Ghimire but the sequel is directed by Rishi Lamicchhane.
Watch full movie
At the time of Dashain holiday, two new movies ‘Kismat 2’ and ‘Subba Saab’ are released in theatres on October 7, 2016. The movie ‘Kismat 2’ is a Chhabiraj Production movie – a sequel of a hit movie ‘Kismat’, but made in a new story. Another movie ‘Subba Saab’ is director Raju Adhikari’s presentation. These movies are released at the time ‘Chhaka Panja’ is keeping its holdover for a month.
The movie got a lot of media coverage because of the rumour of the marriage between Chhabi Raj Ojha and the actress Shilpa Pokharel. Similar rumour during the release of ‘Lazza’ had resulted in the success of the movie. It is to be seen if repeating similar rumour at the time of the release of another movie will be equally helpful. Directed by Rishi Lamichhane ‘Kismat 2’ features Shilpa Pokharel with Prithivi Raj and Kishor Khatiwoda.
Chhabi Raj Ojha’s next movie ‘Kismat 2’ is releasing in the Dashain this year. It seems, the film team is well prepared not to leave any stone unturned. The lead actress, Shilpa Pokharel has told in an interview that if her family agrees, she is willing to marry Chhabi Raj Ojha. Based on previous statement, I think, she is very unlikely to marry Chhabi and it is only a publicity stunt. This time, Chhabi had prepared the situation by formally divorcing Rekha Thapa in the court.
I did an analysis of the situation and prepared the following video:
In a program held at Ganesh Mandir at Kamaladi, the shooting of the upcoming movie ‘Kismat 2’ was officially inaugurated. The movie is a sequel of the successful movie by Chhabi Raj Ojha, ‘Kismat’. In the event, the script and the clap-board of the movie were worshiped in the temple of the god, Ganesh. In Hindu culture, god Ganesh is considered the god to help during the initial stage of any work.
The shooting of the movie is scheduled to start on September 10 in locations in Jomsom. Director Rishi Lamichhane is directing the movie. Shyam Bhattarai was the director selected to direct the movie initially. But, as Shyam headed towards the USA and is not expected to return back anytime soon, Rishi is chosen to direct the movie. The director Shyam Bhattarai had gone on the refuge of Chhabi Ojha when he was kicked out of Rekha Thapa‘s movie, ‘Himmatwali’. To compensate for the unjust caused by Rekha, Chhabi had promised to let Shyam direct one of his movies.
Although the release date of the upcoming movie ‘Kismat 2’ is already announced – on the last Friday of 2072, the artists are yet to be finalized. In a latest report, actress Shilpa Pokharel is going to be featured in leading role. Although Chhabi had previously announced Shilpa to lead the movie, the official announcement was made recently.
The sequel of the hit movie ‘Kismat’ will not repeat any of the original artists. The original ‘Kismat’ had featured Rekha Thapa, Aryan Sigdel and Biraj Bhatt in leading roles. Although rumors of the possibility of Aryan is going on, Rekha and Biraj are out of picture for now.
Watch file video report about Chhabi promising role in ‘Kismat 2’:
Nepali movie industry is a very strange type of industry. In our film industry, most of the business logics fail economic has the least effect on film making. Because of the lack of professionalism in the industry, personal ego and social status are considered more important than the economic viability of the movie. The announcement of 6 movies on the same day, at the end of the year, can considered one of such examples.
On the last Friday of the year 2072 BS, on Chaitra 26 (April 8, 2016), six different movie makers have announced the release date of their movies. It is interesting that five out of the six movies are yet to go to the floor yet. The movies are:
Out of these movies, only the movie ‘Lootera’ has completed its shooting. The movie featuring Nikhil Upreti was previously announced to be released in Tihar but now the release date has been delayed by 5 months. The crew and artists of some of the movies are yet to be determined.
In the initial announcement of the ‘Kismat’ sequel ‘Kismat 2’, director Shyam Bhattarai was named the director. The announcement was made during the birthday celebration of the actress Shilpa Pokharel in December last year. In a latest report, Shyam is replaced by ‘Hawaldar Suntali’ director Rishi Lamichane.

Shyam Bhattarai is currently in USA. He went there on April 10 and is not expected to return back until the start of the shooting of ‘Kismat 2’. That is the reason behind the change in the director of the movie. But, others believe that the success of ‘Hawaldar Suntali’ has helped Rishi to gain confidence from Chhabi. Whatever may be the case, Shyam Bhattarai has been removed from their movies by both Chhabi Raj Ojha and Rekha Thapa. The direction agreement between Chhabiraj Films and Rishi Lamichane was made on April 23.
Sequel movies are produced to cash in the success of the original successful film. Another film, ‘Jholey’ team has announced the making of the sequel of the movie. The movie released last year was liked by the viewers and the producer Taken Khadka has decided that the viewers would like to follow the story in the new part. The director Dipendra K Khanal is reportedly busy in the preparation of the script of the film with the script writer Shan Basnet.
The sequel, ‘Jholey 2’ will feature Dayahang Rai, Priyanka Karki and A Gurung in leading role. A new actress will also debut in the film.
