Movie with different Taste , kinda of Documentary type.
18 June 2016 | by yukeshchSee all my reviews

Movie kalo pothi is a movie for those who wants to see rather a different timing story , Story that are related but in a different way.

While watching movie , I experienced the lives & living of the mugu people exactly which are explained & truth.

Even there's a vast differences in caste factor of living in Nepal in those times however now , the friendship between the Boys with despite the having caste that may allow people of the time to have relationship with , is what makes the movie into a good story.

Combining many stories with the small stories are the top work of the team.

overall I recommend you to watch it , if you want movie with different taste.
