Strong proponent of an alternative stream in Nepalese movies industry
29 July 2017 | by nirakaradhikariSee all my reviews

This movie is another good example of alternative trends in Nepalese cinema industry. In contrast to traditional stream which is heavily influenced by Bollywood, this movie focuses on typical local story in Nepalese lifestyle. The title "Kabaddi", which literally means a kind of game played between two teams, justifies the story. As the title states, it is a game played between a local tough guy, Kaazi, and an outsider, Bibek, to win over girl Maiyaa. Movie makers have taken an even-handed approach to explain the cause for both parties. The characters chosen seems familiar to a Nepali audience. Enough effort has been made to tell the story in an easy pace so that audience won't feel bored. This movie is a good mix-up of comedy and twists, but rarely splashes the viewers with emotions. Technically, it is a good movie, but it is obviously not a high-tech based movie.
