New Gurung language film Siramahrani set for release

- Post Report, Kathmandu

May 16, 2018-

Siramahrani (A Beautiful Gurung Girl), a Gurung-language film, has started screening in the UK. The film premiered at the Empire Hall, in Aldershot, UK, on Sunday.

The film is now all set to hit screens around Nepal, said director Manoj Gurung, who, prior to Siramahrani, directed such films as Chyalayab Ta (Faded Flower), Thuu (Friend), and Maarya Ta (Golden Flower).

Gurung said that Siramahrani revolves around the Bhara culture popular among the Gurung community. “The film carries the message that everyone ought to give back to those that have helped them,” Gurung said.

The film is shot around the Bichchha village in Parbat and various locations in Pokhara. Siramahrani features actors Simran Gurung, Darshan Gurung, Khemraj Ghale, Tibrata Gurung, and Preeti Gurung, among others.

The film is a notable addition to the fledgling canon of indigenous films in Nepal. A new Gurung film, Medo, which revolves around the story of caste-based discrimination still rampant in villages across western Nepal, was announced last week.
