Kesari from SHIRISH GURUNG on Vimeo.
Kesari is a short film directed by Shirish Gurung. I am a fan of Gurung’s work! The way he goes about with the story-telling is so subtle, it’s soft. It’s easily likable and enjoyable to watch. At a time when party-promo videos and short philims in general scream ‘watch me,watch me’ and do not steer too far from those loud acting it’s an immense pleasure to watch Shirish’s videos be it a promotional teaser for a party or videos such as Kesari. Another reason why Kesari vividly stands out is the acting, Kesari and her brother have done a brilliant job and the smaller characters – bajai etc have to be applauded as well.
The film was made in England yet it portrays rural Nepal and Gurung has been successful in doing that. I’ve also embedded a promotional video for a party made by Shirish, have a view. It’s certainly different from all the ”Bollywood” inspired NEPALI videos that we see *YawnYawn!
He’s someone I want to work with! I don’t know what I’d do though because acting is not something I want to do again… Hope to see more from Shirish!
