The trailer may give off the vibe that CHAKKAR is ideal for an artsy independent film festival but the makers are loud and clear when they share that the film is a commercial entertainer. A KTM Art House production, CHAKKAR is a film that revolves around crime and of course – it also touches on love and romance. The kiss shared by the two actresses of the film definitely threw me by surprise… simply because this is still a pretty rare thing to see in Nepali cinema.

With Nepali cinema failing to represent minorities in an accurate manner, we will have to wait and see how these characters are portrayed in CHAKKAR when it releases on July 20. The film stars a team of brilliant actors from Avon Raj Upreti, Aarpan Thapa, Srijana Subba, Reecha Sharma, Bholaraj Sapkota and Smriti Pokharel.

Let me know what you think of this musical trailer. Notice the voice? It’s Neetesh Jung Kunwar and Sheetal Moktan! What a duo!
