This week three movies were released on Friday. Nawal Nepal directed movie ‘Mangalam’, Yam Thapa’s movie ‘Hurrey’ and Ganesh Dev Pandey directional movie ‘Ganja Baja’. Out of the three movies, two of them are comedy genre movie and another social and love story movie. Because of the success of comedy films in these days, a lot of producers have been producing comedy films. It seems, people are more inclined towards non-comedy films. Two of the most recent successful movies – ‘Kri’ and ‘Kanchhi’ both were non-comedy films.
According to reports, ‘Mangalam’ has received a lot of viewers. The film produced by one of the most successful producers of Nepali film industry, Chhabi Raj Ojha, is being supported by his ex-wife Rekha Thapa. Rekha also told that it was her “own film.” She also appreciated the work of the director, two new actors and actress Shilpa Pokharel. Other viewers have also told that the movie is heart touching. Rekha says, ‘Even if you have never cried watching films, this film will make you cry.” But, I think, Rekha didn’t sound any critical and the appreciation remark seem to be motivated by something other than the film itself.
Chhabi Raj Ojha has told that he had tried to capture the multiplex cinema market with ‘Loafer’. But, the movie failed and this is the second time he has attempted to attract young audience and has been quite successful.
Watch my video report:
Regarding the two comedy movies, ‘Hurrey’ has got more viewers than that in ‘Ganja Baja’. The producer of ‘Hurrey has told that those who watched the film have liked it. The trailer of the film has got almost a million viewers:
The song ‘Theki Ma Dahi’ has received in excess of 2 million views.
About Ganja Baja, the movie didn’t get much viewers. Those what watch the film belong to the new age kids. The trailer of the film is not much popular in YouTube.

The clash between two of the most awaited movies of the year has been avoided after ‘Kanchhi’ decided to re-schedule the release date of the movie. Earlier, both ‘Kri’ and ‘Kanchhi’ had announced the release of the movie on February 9, 2018. Anmol’s highly awaited movie was delayed more than once before. I had also prepared a video report on the release date controversy earlier (video attached at the end of the post.)
Now, Shweta Khadka, has told that she is willing to get flexible and let ‘Kri’ release on that day. The new schedule, a week later, on February 16, 2018 isn’t risk-free either. That is because, Chhabi Raj Ojha’s movie ‘Mangalam’ is also releasing on February 16. Chhabi’s movie was previously scheduled to release on Dashain but was delayed to let ‘Chhakka Panja 2’ to release at that time. Although ‘Kanchhi’ has more publicity because of the sympathy towards Shweta, the widow of late Shree Krishna Shrestha, Chhabi’s movie can’t be undermined. Known as one of the top producers in the movie industry, most of Chhabi’s movie are successful.
Talking about the rescheduling, Shweta told, “I din’t want to clash with another movie like that. When I tried to contact the ‘Kri’ team they didn’t respond. Then, I decided to change the date.”
‘Kanchhi’ is directed by the director of ‘Kohinoor’, Aakash Adhikari. The movie features Dayahang Rai and Shweta Khadka in leading role.
The shooting of the movie produced jointly by Chhabi Raj Ojha and Shilpa Pokharel ‘Mangalam’ has finished. The shooting was packed up two days earlier than previously scheduled. According to the report, the movie was scheduled to complete in 35 days but it was finished in 33rd days.
The movie ‘Mangalam’ features the romance of Shilpa Pokharel and Prithivi Raj Prasai. Actress Samragyee RL Shah is also featured in as an actress in the movie. The debut movie of the actress Shilpa Pokharel, as a producer, is scheduled to release on Dashain of this year.
Marriage rumour between Chhabi and Shilpa
During the release of Shilpa Pokharel’s debut movie, Chhabi intentionally created a rumour about their marriage. In a program by Prakash Subedi, Chhabi and Shilpa admitted that they were going to marry soon. Later, in an interview, Shilpa told, “That was a very good strategy. Many viewers went to see the movie to see Chhabi’s girlfriend.” Continue reading

A video report on how Shilpa Pokharel is in Rekha Thapa path:
A new twist has happened in Chhabiraj Ojha’s life in the past few years – after Rekha divorced and new actress,Shilpa Pokharel entered his life. The important events are:
Rekha Thapa left Chhabiraj Ojha.
Rekha Thapa took Rekha Films with her forcing Chhabi to register Chhabiraj Production. But, Chhabi wasn’t willing to let Rekha go. So, he and Rekha did a joint production movie – ‘Hifajat’ and Rekha was the lead actress.
Rekha went solo in ‘Kali’ and Chhabi went solo in ‘Loafer’. They annouced to release both movies on the same date. But, Rekha acted smarter and asked Chhabi to distribute the movie and delay ‘Loafer’.
In the mean time Chhabi and Rekha accused each other for betraying.
After 4 years of separation, Chhabi asked for the formal divorce.
Chhabi was so obsessed with Rekha that, he searched for the actress who looked similar to Rekha. Found Rajani KC to work in ‘Loafer’. The movie failed to win viewers heart.
Chhabi found another Rekha look-alike, Shilpa Pokharel. Shilpa’s movie ‘Lazza’ became successful opening the possibility of Shilpa’s entry in Chhabi’s life.
Now, actress Shilpa Pokharel is going to be the next Rekha Thapa in Chhabi camp, after being featured as the presenter of Mangalam and the news of her marriage to Chhabi.
