Tukee Arts along with director Dipendra K Khanal and actor-writer Khagendra Lamichhane gave us one of the finest Nepali films last year. ‘Pashupati Prasad’ that was released in January in 2016 didn’t only win the audience’s hearts and perform well at the box office but also won a number of awards in different categories. Well, the team is back again with a new film and looks like they are looking forward to repeat the success.
The trailer for ‘Dhanapati’ has just been released and it looks promising. The film tells the story of a middle class family that is struggling to make ends meet. Some unexpected challenges await them as the husband, played by Khagendra Lamichhane, decides to join politics to be able to earn good and provide good education to their daughter. Surakshya Panta who was first seen in Alok Nembang’s 2015 film ‘Ajhai Pani’ plays the female lead in the film written by Khagendra Lamichhane, produced by Rojina Sitaula, and directed by Dipendra K. Khanal. The film also stars Manish Niraula, Aashant Sharma, Surabi Bartaula, Harihar Sharma, Rabi Giri, Kamal Devkota and Prakash Ghimire in important roles. Aadha Sur has composed the music for the film edited by Dirgha Khadka.
The 3-minute trailer actually shows some of the realest sides of the situations in our country, including the effects of Bandha. The film is slated for its release on July 7th. Watch the trailer here.
