I am going to be completely honest here. I haven’t really completed watching many Nepali web series. Couple of years back, I was really enjoying this series called ‘Once Upon a Time in Kaalopul’ but it got cancelled or something after just three episodes. The most recent one that I watched was ‘Just Another Love Story’. And today I came across the first episode of a new series called ‘Action-Cut’ which is like 41 minutes long and it totally had me say, “I am so excited to not watch this” but I played it anyway because, you know, lockdown. The opening two-minute one-take shot kinda got me interested and guess what, I actually watched the entire episode. I gotta say, it’s not bad and I am looking forward to the second episode; and I really, really hope it won’t be like many other series that have a good pilot episode but get boring later.
So what is this series about anyway? It’s about a bunch of film school students and the ups and downs they face in the journey to achieve their dreams of making it big in the film industry. Starring Arun Pun Magar, Aakanshya GC, Bijay Nepal, Mira Khadka, Rakshya Thapa, Sajal Lopchan and Simanta Pudasaini; the series is directed and edited by Siddhartha Pudasaini under the banner of TunaMuna Production.
Watch the episode right here.
Nope, I have no idea when the second episode’s going to come out as they haven’t mentioned anything about it; and I don’t know how many episodes are going to be there. So let’s just wait and watch.
Let me know in the comments if you think I’ve missed some good web series.
