Nepali Film – Jhelee Starring – Surabina Karki, Dipasha BC, Anil Thapa, Askar Sharma etc. Director – Kamal Dahal
A presentation of Amar Ratna Production, Nepali film ‘Jhelee’ by Bheshman Shrestha. The film features the music of Suryakiran Lama, choreography of Kabiraj Gahatraj / Saiman, story of Shesman Shrestha, script / dialogue of Sushil / Prakash, editing of Roshan Lamichhane, cinematography of Sabnamm Mukhiya and produced jointly by Ratna Maya Shrestha / Ram Prasad Maharjan / Sundar Bahadur Khatri.
Nepali Film – Naike Starring – Aryan Sigdel, Surabina Karki, Sarika KC, Rem BK etc. Director – Netra Gurung
The movie released in 2014 (read the release news) wasn’t successful movie. The movie was released with Sambhu Pradhan’s comeback film ‘Ranga Baijani’. But, neither of the movies were liked by the viewers. The movie features Aryan Sigdel in an action role. With Aryan Sigdel and Surabina Karki, the movie also features Rem BK, Bodhraj Regmi, Sarika KC etc. I wrote about the start of the movie in Pokhara (read the news here) and also talked about Aryan being featured as a gangster (read the news). In addition to action it also features romance and music. Aryan is also featured as a lover-boy image in addition to being featured in a tough action role.
The movie made under Black Shadow Production is directed by Netra Gurung, a film director from Pokhara. Most of the movie was also shot in various locations in and around Pokhara. “Naike” is a Nepali word for a leader. Although it is a Nepali word, the name in various posters were spelled in different English letters. Some posters named the film as ‘Naike’ and others ‘Naaike’ (attached poster is a proof). The confusion in the name is a better indication how the editing of the film might have been done. No wonder, people didn’t like the film.
Yes, that is what Surabina Karkia said after the completion of a 4-months-long acting training in Mumbai. After the completion of the training at Anupam Kher’s training institute, Surabina told that she felt like a matured actress now and is now ready to do any types of roles in movies.
After returning from the training Surabina told, “Now onwards I will only do the selected movies. I will evaluate the reputation of the banner and will study my role before signing in.”

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.
The film award being distributed by Gopi Krishna Movies, NFDC National Film Award 2016 nomination was released in a program held in Kathmandu. The Award ceremony will be held in Ashoj. It’s interesting two movies released on the same day – ‘Premgeet’ and ‘Classic’ were nominated in the most number of awards – 11 categories each. ‘Pashupati Prasad’ and ‘Woda Number 6’ each were nominated in 8 different categories and ‘Kabaddi Kabaddi’ was nominated in 7 categories.
I have compiled the list of seven Nepali actresses with the first pay they got for their role in a movie. The actresses include: Gauri Malla, Neeta Dhungana, Shristi Shrestha, Keki Adhikari, Neeta Dhungana, Surabina Karki, Jharana Thapa, Deepa Shree Niraula
Watch the video report:
In addition to these actresses the following list contain some of the Nepali actors who had told their first income:
Dayahang Rai was paid Rs. 10,000 for the role in his first movie, ‘Anagarik’. Actor Aryan Sigdel had worked for free in ‘Kismat’. The producer Chhabi Raj Ojha hadn’t paid any money to Aryan. Similarly actor Jiwan Luitel also worked for free. He also debuted in Chhabi Raj Ojha’s movie. Based on these facts, I can safely tell that all the actors who debuted in Chhabi Ojha’s movies didn’t get any pay for their roles. Continue reading

UPDATE 1 : Photos of Bhai Tika of Rajesh Hamal, Dilip Rayamajhi, Jal Shah, Namrata Shrestha, Nisha Sunar are added.
The second biggest festival in Nepal after Dashain, Tihar has been wrapped up on Friday November 13. The last day of Tihar – Bhai Tika is celebrated by brothers and sisters to show their love and dedication to each other. On the occasion, despite of economic blockade from India, people have followed the tradition. Update
The beauty of Bhai Tika is that people make new brothers and sisters during the festival. For example, Takme Budha (Wilson Bikram Rai) and Ashma DC and Sanyukta Puri, Jal Shah and Bikrant Basnet, Nisha Sunar and Suman Budha Magar, Naresh Bhattarai and Sapana Chamling Rai became new brothers/sisters this year.
Singer, journalist and actress Komal Oli made this year’s Bhai Tika memorable by presenting 2-litres petrol to each of her brothers. At the time of petrol-crisis in Nepal, that would certainly made the happiest brothers.
Comedy actress Palpasa Dangol, popularly known as Chamsuri has urine infection and was rushed to emergency room in Teaching Hospital right before Bhai Tika. As she had to be treated in the hospital, her brothers visited Dangol in hospital bed to take Bhai Tika. Palpasa has told that that was one of the most memorable Bhai Tika in her life.
