For the Oscar Awards to be held in February, four Nepali movies have applied to be selected to represent Nepal in the Best Foreign Language Film category. The application from the makers of Sunpani, Nishani, Bhimdatta and Talakjung VS Tulke was received to the Film Development Board, Nepal.
Application was called from the movies released between Ashoj 15, 2071 to Bhadra 14, 2072 BS to apply for the consideration to send to the Oscar awards in the USA. A five-members Oscar Award Selection Committee will evaluate the applications and send the most appropriate movie to the Oscar Awards selection committee.
It is no secret that the Nepali film market is limited and there are not many viewers of Nepali films. Because of the competition created by the high budget Bollywood and Hollywood films, Nepali films don’t have that big viewer base for a lot of Nepali films. In this context, release of multiple Nepali films every week is scary for the genuine film producers.
This week, 4 new films are releasing in theater. Whatever may be the case, such a release doesn’t make any business sense. Dividing the viewers in a lot of films don’t help the film industry.
The movie made on the story of a person who has overcome the indulgence of drugs and aim to change the social equation. The movie featuring Pradeep Khadka and Reema Bishowkarma is directed by Ananta Ghimire.
