It is a myth that multiple film releases on the same day hurt the producer. I reached to the conclusion after a bit of research on the history of such releases in the past.
After I wrote the news about the two new and highly awaited movies – Anmol KC’s ‘Kri’ and Shweta Khadka’s ‘Kanchhi’ releasing on the same day for the Valentine Day of 2018, I thought about the benefits and loss to the producers by such releases. Apart from my personal analysis the research on the history of film releases also supported the notion that – good films are successful no matter how many films release on that day. Bad films don’t get any viewers even if they get solo-release slots.
Before I go deep in case studies, here is a video report on the issue:
Nepali Movie – Kohinoor
Starring – Shree Krishna Shrestha, Sweta Khadka etc.
Director – Aakash Adhikari
The last movie of Shree Krishna Shrestha was produced by Shree Krishna himself. The movie was released a day before Shree’s death.
A presentation of Nepa Movies, ‘Kohinoor’ is the second movie of Shree Krishan Shrestha as a producer. Shree Krishna’s debut movie as producer and debut movie of Sweta Khadka ‘Kaha Bhetiyala‘ became a super hit movie. The affair between Sweta and Shree started in the movie and converted into marriage recently. The movie written and directed by Aakash Adhikari is jointly produce by Sweta, Shree Krishna, Shankar Shrestha and Chandra Prasad Shrestha.
The movie features music of Shambhujit Baskota, choreography of Basanta Shrestha, action of Rajendra Khadgi, cinematography of Raju Bikram Thapa and editing of Banish Shah. The script and dialogue is written by Ram Thapa and the lyrics are written by Kiran Kharal, Dr. Krishnahari Baral, Sundar Shrestha and Aakash Adhikari.
Watch the full movie here:
The release date of upcoming movie of Anmol KC ‘Kri’ has been finalized for Magh 26 (February 9). The date is the same date in which, Shweta Khadka’s comeback movie ‘Kanchhi’ was previously finalized. It these two movies are released in the same day, it would be a huge clash for them as both of them are the most awaited movies of the current time.
I had prepared a video report of Shweta’s movie ‘Kanchhi’ yesterday about how the song of the movie is setting record viewership.
The release date of ‘Kri’ was was announced by the producer Subash Giri in Facebook after the completion of the shooting of the movie in Pokhara.
This is a huge moment for actress Shweta Khadka. After a long depression, the actress has made a comeback in the film industry as an actress and a producer of her upcoming movie ‘Kanchhi’. The first song of the movie released today shows a lot of potential. In an event held in Kathmandu on November 2, the song made on a folk tune – ‘Chari Chatta Pari…’ of the movie was released. The song made on the lyrics and the music of Rajanraj Siwakoti features Rajan Raj with Anju Panta’s voice.
The song features the choreography of Basanta Shrestha and features Shweta Khadka with Dayahang Rai and Prajjwal Sujal Giri. ‘Kanchhi’ is shot in locations like Mustang, Upper Mustang, Jomsom and Kathmandu.
UPDATE: Dashain has finished today. I collected 100s of photos of celebrities. But, posting them in the page would not be that much interesting to the most of the site visitors. So, I collected the photos of 40+ Nepali actress celebrating Dashain this year and prepared a video (I deleted the video – nobody watched it).
I also prepared a video about the fist Dashain of two Miss Nepal sons. In addition to the sons of Jharana Bajracharya and Malvika Subba, the daughter of actress Richa Ghimire also celebrated her Dashain for the first time in her life.
