Feb 28, 2016-

The trailer of the awaited movie How Funny was launched at Q’s Cinemas, Rising Mall, Durbargmarg amid a ceremony on Saturday. Directed by debutant Nilu Doma Sherpa, the film is a joint venture of Eyecore and A Tiny but Big Pictures Production. 

The movie stars Priyanka Karki and Keki Adhikari in  lead roles while Nisha Adhikari, Daya Hang Rai and Anoop Bikram Shahi will be seen in supporting roles. 

When asked about the expectations she has from her debut film, director Sherpa said that she hopes the film will not disappoint audiences. Malvika Subba, an executive producer of the film, was also present at the launch and shared that she is both nervous and excited for the release of the film and that waiting for the film to hit theatres as the post-production winds down was akin to waiting for a child to be delivered.

Speaking at the event, Priyanka Karki said that this particular film is very special for her as the film empowers women and is shown in a way that hasn’t been seen before in Nepali cinema. “The inquisitive quality of every woman portrayed in the film is what makes the film woman centric and empowers us,” she  said. Keki Adhikari also shared the same views and said that the film was a wonderful experience for her as the majority of the cast and the production team were women and that the film will be shown from a woman’s point of view—a rarity for the Nepali movie industry.

The film revolves around two friends, Ramita (Priyanka Karki) and Pushpa (Keki Adhikari) who venture out to find a missing girl (Nisha Adhikari) when they meet a police officer, Tej Bahadur (Dayahang Rai). 

The duo  play detectives working to find the missing girl in the flick.                                                

The film is set to release nationwide on April 22.
