Katha Kathmandu: ‘Stories of love, lust and life’
Jul 8, 2018-
Writer and tele-serial director Sangita Shrestha has now come up with a feature film, Katha Kathmandu.
Shrestha is the director of the series Katha Premka, which used to air on Kantipur Television and author of an anthology of short stories, Kathama Aljhiyeko Prem.
The film features actors Priyanka Karki, Aayushman DS Joshi, Sanjog Koirala, Sandhya KC, Prekshya Adhikari, and Pramod Agrahari, and presents the stories of, as the poster of the film promises, lust, love and life. The film also features a cameo role by singer Indira Joshi.
According to producers, Aahana Films, the film portrays the separate stories of separate characters residing in Kathmandu.
“The seeds of Katha Kathmandu were sown very early on when I was directing the tele-serial. The series not only garnered good responses but also offered to direct a feature. I was not yet prepared to do a feature then. Instead, I wrote a short collection, the response from which further buoyed me as a storyteller,” director Shrestha said. “In the upcoming feature, I have tried to tell an all-too-familiar story but with a different approach.”
Katha Kathmandu will hit theatres around the nation on Sept 28.
