KATHMANDU:- If there is one area in Nepal that is most affected by the Corona epidemic, it is the film sector. During the first phase of the epidemic, the activities of the film industry came to a standstill for about nine months. Although it was open for a few months in between, the second wave of Corona started and closed again. After the tireless efforts of filmmakers and film-related organizations, the government gave permission to open the hall and film it from last August.
However, despite the government’s permission to open the hall, the producers were not ready to screen the film. Due to which, only after coming to the mouth of Dashain, the hall opened. Deciding to open the hall, the Nepal Film Association had given 55 percent share to the producer in the first week and the Film Development Board had announced a relief package of Rs 700,000. However, despite this, the producers were not ready to release the film.
Seeing that a big film would not be released on a big festival like Dashain, director Shovit Basnet released the film ‘Dandako Varapipal’ in full bloom. Starring Shiv Shrestha, Bhuvan KC, Gauri Malla, Salon Basnet and many others, the film was expected to draw a large audience. However, the audience did not reach the hall to watch the film. After that, other manufacturers also got involved.
Before the Corona epidemic, Nepali producers used to have the same grievances and grievances: “Nepali films were oppressed because of Hindi films.” Nepali producers were staunch opponents of Hindi films. However, every filmmaker was waiting for a hopeful Bollywood film to revive the corona epidemic. One of them was ‘Suryavanshi’.
Despite repeatedly announcing the release date, the film was not released due to Corona. After the Maharashtra government of India gave permission to open a cinema hall a decade ago, director and producer Rohit Shetty announced the release date of the film targeting Diwali. The announcement was met with excitement from manufacturers and distributors in Nepal as well as in India.
Nepali producers were thinking of showing their film if this film draws the audience to the hall. Not to mention, ‘Suryavanshi’ has brought the audience back to the hall. There is a large crowd of spectators in the halls of Nepal since Friday. It is as if the producers of Nepal are celebrating their own film. Now there is a great hope that everyone will come to watch Nepali films.
However, there is no guarantee that the spectators who come to the hall to watch ‘Suryavanshi’ will come to watch Nepali films with equal enthusiasm. The film manages to entertain as well as inform, thanks to its great star cast and strong content. Now the audience will expect the same from Nepali films. ‘Suryavanshi’ has become a moving example that if the film is strong, the fear of Corona will not stop the audience from coming to the hall.
After this film made a lucrative business in Nepal, Nepali producers have started to scatter. The producers, who were scared to release the film on festivals like Dashain and Tihar, are now in a dilemma as to when the film will be released. Because, the films of big stars of Bollywood have already booked all the good dates.
But, now the producers are sure to work hard to release the finished film. On the upcoming Shivaratri, Phagu Purnima, Chaitedshain, Janai Purnima, there seems to be a lot of fuss among the producers to release the film in the new year. Audiences have been waiting for a long time, such as ‘A Mero Hazur 4, Prem Geet 3, Ma Yasto Geet Gaunchu 2, Samhalinchha Kahile Man, Kabaddi 4, Chakka Panja 4’.
