Anup Baral's directorial debut "Fitkiree" releases first trailer

Senior actor Anup Baral turns movie Director with Fitkiree, which has released its first official trailer today. He has been directing many plays in theater and had even played TV serials in NTV during his starting career but it is the first time he has directed a feature movie. Famed actor of Kagbeni, Batch No 16, Das Dhunga, Badhshala, was the talk of the town lately with his direction for popular drama "Court Martial". 

Here is the first trailer of the movie Fitkiree, as taken from the producer Arjun Kumar's official Youtube Channel.

The movie had released its first song, Deusi song during Tihar festival which was much admired by people. With the mind blowing trailer, I have this feeling the investigative thriller is made excellently, making it the most awaited Nepali movie for 2014. As shown in the trailer, the story of the movie can be expected to be the investigation of kidnapping of a businessman named Ram ji lal, and the search for the truth ending in an unanticipated result. Saugat Malla, Deeya Maskey, Shanti Giri and "Loot" maker Nischal Basnet are the major actors in the movie, which is written by movie buff cum journalist Yangesh. The line where Nischal Basnet says with an superb Hollywood kinda look, "I have a fucking Masters degree major in psychology", and the boyish kinda Nepali reply from Saugat Malla, "fucking in??... Psychology". makes it damn hilarious. It is also known that Chaitra 7, 2070 (March 21, 2014) is already set as the release date for the movie. For other information, we have to wait for other trailers and more words from the film makers.

Cha ekan cha movie review

If you are going to watch a movie written, produced and played by comedians, you would definitely expect hell of a comedy to get full entertainment and that's what Cha ekan cha makers promised to give. The grand opening of "Cha ekan cha" also shows the vast anticipation in people for big comedy blow out with the kings of comedy TV serials such as Tito Satya, Meri Bassai and Jire Khursani. Despite the terrific business for two days and the days ahead, the movie falls short of the exciting storytelling & the level of humor that has been anticipated and at times you even get confused whether you are watching a comic serial or a feature film. 

Six characters: a bankrupt businessman, a luscious lawyer, a bolly flick inspector, a clumsy poet, a trustful servant and a squatter/beggar aka "magne", try to win the heart of a rich girl "Astha" played by Neeta Dhungana, all for the wealth the orphaned girl has got. Her "unrealistic" impression for all the not so interesting people goes away  instantly after knowing their truth one after another. But having said that, you are not done with all the story as you could find several hilarious sequences within. 
Though the dialogues and actions highly inspired from Bolly flick "Dabang" for the character Pandey (played by the writer himself Deepak Raj Giri) gives a good round of applause and amusement, I am against the whole idea of ruining our own identity for being safe in business, and at least the mock up song (Dhokebaaz re) does not suit a Nepali movie made from such senior actors. For that matter, it is a big letdown to me. Magne buda (Kedar Ghimire) with his same magne attire and unique character rocks the most among all. Sandip Chetri (Host of What the flop) giving out comic poetry, gets a noticeable presence in the movie which he did not get from Highway. Raj Ballav Koirala has showed the real dynamics of his acting skills in this movie with the portrayal of a Nepali Don with comic newari accent. However the awkward English accent and the loud acting of female protagonist have more negative remarks from people, despite her glamorous presence. It also feels like Director Dinesh DC has not quite properly connected the dots (comedy sequences) to get a good cinematic experience.
The movies seems unnecessary elongated towards the end, with not so funny remarks and excitement, that makes a movie goer like me feel to be cheated by the word "full entertainment". I would say it is a 'fantoos entertainment' but still I recommend to give it a try just for some comic time out.
