About Uma : The movie is made on the story of the Maoists insurgency in the 1990s. One of the saddest time in the history of Nepal is being presented in this movie – While the war is over, its residuces are still in the society. The aftermath of the 10-year conflict has polarised Nepali society and the effects of the ‘People’s war’ is still starkly evident. The film is set in the early 2000s, during the Maoist insurgency, when Nepal was going through one of the biggest conflicts in the country’s history. The movie is a story of a widowed mother (Mithila Sharma) and her two children â€“ her son Milan (Saugat Malla) and her daughter Uma (Reecha Sharma). The film is inspired by true events.
