LUST : An Appreciable Effort of Young Film Makers #Review

By Anjali Timalshina,

LUST” as a title for movie- the first time I heard about it, I thought it was something related to a sensual relationship between a guy and a girl -- obviously, the title gave it away. Nevertheless it was not quite the story that matched my prophecy. Having the opportunity to watch the premier show of the “BUDS Best Film” award winner movie, I could say that I had raised expectations from the enthusiastic team of the filmmakers. On the other hand, what added my prospects was the fact that the movie was releasing on one of the prospective and active youth blogger “Aakar’s” blog Aakar Post that promoted the movie utilizing every possible resource.lust review

Getting to the story- the protagonist (or the con protagonist) portrayed by Pawan Jha and Manisha Bista as the lead lady in the movie seriously could not win my heart. I cannot exact about the conditions and time the movie was directed under, neither would I say that the director could not find the right person to play the lead character. Nonetheless, as much as I would have expected from a group of potential youths to improve the quality of our entertainment industry, the actors did not meet my expectations at all.

For instance, the lead male character has many expressions to express; firstly, when he welcomes the girl and he is supposed to be stunned by her beauty, we don’t see any expression covered by long hair of Pawan Jha. Even when he explains his rage regarding the chase he had with the girl, he says his dialogue as if a parrot has mugged the lines up. On the other hand, Manisha Bista too fails to relate with her audiences via her expressions that should have moved along with her lines. If I had to talk about their acting, I’d say director Rajan Kathet could have used the idea of auditions before choosing his leads.

The script is finely written and carved with creativity which keeps the audiences guessing about what’s coming next-Abhimanyu Dixit surely has put his imaginative heart out into the story. Adding to the note, Dixit has introduced an experimental yet original story line in Nepali Entertainment Industry, where the ongoing ruling trend is production of stagnantly replicated stories from Bollywood. It sure is a pleasant risk, I must say—and a note of appreciation to Dixit for a brave move to drop a fresh droplet into an immobile lake of stale water.

The cinematographer (Shail Shrestha) has done an appraisable job, which surely swept me away with the skills used in the movie. Director Rajan Kathet, I expect much more from you as an upcoming director full of enthusiasm who would be able to contribute in lifting the standards of Nepali movies. The team of the movie-makers have done a remarkable job of bringing out something new to audiences; however, the ones who were supposed to portray the characters lively, failed to understand the significance of vivacity that expressions bring into the characters.

On the contrary, considering that it is the first attempt of the creative team to put together their efforts and present it to the audiences, their attempt is surely appealing. Nevertheless, it is obvious that we’d expect more in the near future from the team of Kathet with improvements on the loopholes in his previous attempts.

सोसल मिडिया मिथ्याङ्क?

मलाई हिजोआज सबैभन्दा धेरै सोधिने प्रश्न भनेको, 'नेपालमा कति फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ता छन्?' 'लगभग ८५ लाख' । फेसबुक प्रयोगकर्ताको सङ्ख्या हेर्दा गज्जब छ । सबैजना अनलाइन छन् । आफ्ना साथीभाइ, आफन्तसँग जोडिन फेसबुक सबैका लागि सजिलो भएकोछ । टेलिकमहरुले सुरु गरेका थ्रिजी सेवा, नेपाली भाषामा प्रयोग गर्न सकिने स्मार्टफोन, तथा नेपाली भाषामा चलाउन मिल्ने फेसबुक एपको विकास सँगै, फेसबुक धेरैको पहुँचमा पुगेकोछ । नेपाल दूरसञ्चार प्राधिकरणको रिपोर्ट अनुसार, करिब डेढ करोड अहिले इन्टरनेटको पहुँचमा छन्, जुन नेपालको कूल जनसङ्ख्याको ५८ प्रतिशत हो ।


यी तथ्यांकहरु जति गज्जब देखिन्छन् । त्यही अनुपातमा यसको प्रभाव भने देखिन्न । फेसबुक, ट्विटर, युट्युब आदि विभिन्न सोसल मिडिया साइटका प्रयोगकर्ताहरु, मेरा लाखौँ, फलोअर/लाइक/सव्सक्राइबर छन् भनेर गर्वसाथ भनिरहेका हुन्छन् । कतिपय ठाउँमा उनीहरु आफ्नो परिचय नै यति हजार/लाख फलोअर छन् भनेर गराउँछन् । सङ्ख्या सुन्दा, 'आहा' भन्ने किसिमको छ । फलानाको यति लाइक/फलोअर पुग्यो भनेर त समाचार/ब्लग नै बन्छन् । कतिपय प्रयोगकर्ताहरु, 'यति धेरै फलोअर भएको मान्छ…

अमेरिकी छलाङ्ग

अघिल्लो वर्षको जनवरीमा लेखिएको "एउटा फेक ट्विटर एकाउन्टको नाममा" ब्लग वर्षैभरि अन्यन्तै चर्चित रह्यो । सायद यसैको प्रभाव हुनुपर्छ, अघिल्लो हप्ता ईमेलमा अमेरिकी बसाइ अनुभव संगालिएको बाबुरामजीको एउटा प्राइभेट 'अनलाइन जर्नल' (डायरी) आइपुग्यो। नियमित त हैन, तर कहिलेकाँही भने तिम्रो ब्लग हेर्छु भनेर लेखिएको थियो । त्यसै  'जर्नल'मा रहेको 'अमेरिकी छलाङ्ग'का केही सम्पादित अंशहरु तल प्रस्तुत गरेकोछु ।

म यसै बसिरहेको हुन्छु, फोनमा खेलिरहेको हुन्छु, घरी ट्विटर घरी फेसबुक घरी के चलाई रहेकोहुन्छु। यसैमा भान्सामा काम गरिरहेकी मेरी प्राण प्यारीको नजर म माथि पर्छ। अनी उनी भन्छिन, "यसै फोन चलाएर बस्नु भन्दा त बरु ईन्टरनेट खोलेर मेरो फोन र ईन्सुरेन्सको अटो पे'मा राखिदिनु नि, महिनै पिच्छे सम्झिदाँको टेन्सन त हुन्न मलाई" ! म एकदम ज्ञानी पति बनेर ल्यापटप खोल्छु। पासवर्ड हालेर विण्डोज खोलि सकेको हुदैन, मेरी प्राण प्यारी भान्साबाट मर्जी हुन्छिन । "कहिले काँहि त बुढिलाई भान्सामा सहयोग गरे नि हुने नि, कहिले फोन त कहिले ल्यापटप"।
