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.
This week, on August 11, 2017, a new movie of Nikhil and Saugat is released in theatre, ‘Sarakshan’.

The movie made on the politics in the villages and cities in Terai region features some of the best known actors in the Nepali film industry. There were no Nepali movie release last week, so ‘Sanrakshan’ enjoys the solo release and no competition advantage. In addition to that, the star cast in the movie with Nikhil and Saugat in leading role are another attraction towards the movie for a wide range of movie goers.
The movie features the Madhesh unrest, crime in Terai, police actions and other social aspects of Terai. In the movie, both Nikhil Upreti and Saugat Malla are featured as police officers.

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.

The affair between actor Saugat Malla and actress Shristi Shrestha is an open secret now. Although Saugat has admitted his love towards each other, they were trying to hide from the public. Before Shristi Saugat Malla was told to be in affair with model Soni KC. Soni reportedly threatened Shristi when Saugat left her. I also made a video about the affair and vacation of Saugat and Shristi at Rara lake in Mugu.
Now, it seems Saugat and Shristi are more comfortable being together in public places. Last time, they were seen together watching ‘Twelve Angary Men’ at Mandala Theatre. They seem comfortable being together and were happy when photos of them were taken.

Nepali Movie – Kagbeni
Starring – Saugat Malla, Deeya Maskey, Nima Rumba, Hanif Mohammed, Pooja Gurung, Vivek Gurung etc.
Director – Bhushan Dahal
A 2008 release Nepali movie ‘Kagbeni’ is loosely based on the W. W. Jacobs’ 1902 horror short story “The Monkey’s Paw”. The plot of the movie takes place in a place called Kagbeni, located in the Kali Gandaki valley, about 2-hour walk from Muktinath. Well known journalist Bhusan Dahal has directed the movie featuring well known theatre actors in leading roles.
I think, ‘Kagbeni’ is one of the Top 10 must watch Nepali movies for it’s uniqueness in story telling and quality. As, the movie is an art movie, those looking for an entertaining story might not find it appealing.
The film is not available now.
Star Cast of ‘Kagbeni’
‘Kagbeni’ features Saugat Malla and Deeya Maskey in leading roles. Saugat Malla became popular as Haku Kale, a character in super hit movie ‘Loot’. The actor Saugat Malla is considered one of the best actors of the Nepali film industry. Apart from being a good actor, Malla is also in top of the news because of his affair with ex-Miss Nepal and the actress of ‘Gajalu’, Shristi Shrestha.
The actress Deeya Maskey is also a well known theatre actress. As both Saugat and Deeya have theatre background, they have justified the character they are featured in. Diya is known for controversial statements in interviews. She is married to Anup Baral, a well known actor and theatre play director. Well known singer Nima Rumba is also an attraction of the movie. Well known journalist, Bhusan Dahal, had directed the critically acclaimed movie. Apart from directing music videos, Dahal, hasn’t directed another movie after the 2008 release film. He is however active in journalism and is considered one of the best journalists of Nepal.

Poster of ‘Kagbeni’
It is no secret that Saugat Malla (Haku Kale) and Miss Nepal 2012 Shristi Shrestha are seeing each other. A while ago, Saugat Malla had also gone to the police to complain about the model, Soni KC, who had threatened to harm Shristi for stealing Saugat from her. The incident might have strengthened the bond between Saugat and Shristi. The proof was seen at the beautiful location in Mugu – Rara Lake.
In an exclusive report, Saugat Malla and Shristi Shrestha were spotted in Rara lake. They were living in Danfe Lodge for four days. After returning back from the trip, Shristi wrote in her instagram post, “Thank you Mugu for the most needed break. It has been absolutely rejuvenating.”
According to the source in Rara, they were trying to keep themselves away from the general public. While Shristi Shrestha was always seen wearing cap and a mask to hide her face, Saugat Malla had also done his best to hide himself in his cap. In Danfe lodge, Shristi and Saugat had rented the room overlooking the lake and lived mostly inside the room. They usually order the food in their room so, they didn’t event have to get out of the room for eating.
The triangular love story between Saugat Malla, Shristi Shrestha and Soni KC has taken a new twist. In a report, Saugat Malla has lodged a complaint against Soni KC, the model who reportedly was having an affair with Saugat Malla before.
These days there is a rumour of affair between Saugat Malla, the Haku Kale of ‘Loot’ and Shristi Shrestha, the ‘Gajalu’ debut actress. After such report, Soni had started posting tragic comments in her Facebook page. Lately, she is reportedly being aggressive against Shristi Shrestha. In phone conversation with Saugat Malla, Soni had uttered threats including bodily harms by throwing acid on Shristi to as extreme as killing.
Saugat has told that he has recorded the call of Soni and believes she is serious in her threats.
