Finest Milestone for Nepali Cinema
2 May 2014 | by sadsaintSee all my reviews

This one just is an ultimate classic for a Nepali movie. Though it is a Limbu movie, narrowing it down even further in an already small group of Nepali Audience, as a view point from a Local in Nepal, it's a joy to watch something of this level when the entire movie industry is ruined by the plagiarism and other not so notable movie works. Nabin Subba does a fine job. the movie seemed so simple throughout the screening, something that is found rarely in Nepali movie. the acting cast is good, though i haven't heard about any of the main character anywhere, they did a fine job portraying the Nepali society. If any foreigners want to get their minds into the fine circle of the rich Nepali culture (especially the eastern Rai/Limbu culture), then this movie is the best one. it also depicts some taboos of the society. for a Nepali movie it should hit a 11 in a scoreline of 10.
