Its a best movie with Nepal's realistic context. Tho, I've heard its not good movie because it doesn't have sexy scenes etc. But I think It has everything that story demands. Nisha and Diya play the role greatly, I wish in Nepal, people would get some education about sexuality. Though, its very sad story, but it represents the story of those unlucky people in Nepal, who are forced to marry to someone they don't love. similarly in this movie, she is being killed for being who she is, for loving someone she wants. Its sad they haven't released it in DVD, I hope it will be released in DVD too. I watched it in big screen and Loved it, after few days I tried to take my mum to show it but it was already gone from Cinema.
