Our Nepali Cinema is definitely at a stage of transition. 2012 will undoubtedly be the year of diverse cinema; be it love, family, drama and action, all of the genres are covered. Here is ‘APABAD’, another film to watch out for which will soon be hitting theatres near you from the 20th of April. The movie which has been directed by Subash Koirala stars two young actors who have been successful in creating a name for themselves in a short amount of time, Raj Ballav Koirala and Nisha Adhikari. Enough of the blabber, below is a short synopsis, a note from the director and few exclusive stills from APABAD.
My take, APABAD looks unlike the films that we are seeing currently in Nepali cinema. The stills and visual look feeds off a feeling that this is a film that will test the audience to think… to use our brains… whether that will be the case of the final product, I don’t know. I predict this is a movie that will take the audience on a ride through the journey played out by Raj Ballav Koirala. His rough look has got many talking, maybe we’ll see some award worthy performance. Let’s wait till the 20th April.
PS. I’m already liking the ‘Ye Dautari’ track from the movie! THUMBS UP!
This is a story of Suyog: Young and intelligent with his own set of ideals and beliefs. His perspective towards society and perception of the people around him are very individualistic. And he lives a dream hoping one day it gets fulfilled. But the wind blows against him, he tries to get up every time, only to be forced to the ground again. His hope fades away and the wind takes him over. What he does after that, how he finds his dream and happiness… is an exception!
Apabad is a measure of patience and persistence to achieve one’s goal in life. It is a question that we have asked ourselves in many crossroads of life and how one among us dared to stand for what he believes. It’s a story of an outlaw who puts a blindfold to pragmatism and walks in self-professed path of liberation and realization.
Purpose. What is ones “purpose” on this crazy world we all call home? For some it takes their whole life to figure it out and some never do. I had it all figured out, I love to tell the stories and entertain people. As a film making student and being passionate about films I want to create distinctive mark on every film I make.Everyone lives in a different reality that is why people enjoy watching movies. It gives insight into the worlds of others. I as a Film director strive to portray their characters’ lives as believable as possible.
APABAD is my first film as a director. I hope this will make a mark of myself as a true story teller and a film maker.
