Reecha Sharma is back in action with UMA on the 24th May! The actress who has been part of several big films in the past including First Love and Highway is the leading protagonist in UMA, where she plays an opinionated college student swayed by the ideologies of a fellow teacher which leaves her in a middle of a very tricky situation. The film has been set in the early 2000’s during the peak period of the maoist civil war. Saugat Malla will be seen alongside Reecha Sharma as her brother in the film. I just hope the film receives a green light from the censor people in Nepal. Definitely like the trailer, looks like it’ll be a tearjerker. What do you think of the trailer?
