Trailer for Rekha Thapa’s latest film, Maaleekaa, has been released via Youtube. Maaleekaa marks a rare feat for a Nepali movie actress, for the film is directed by Thapa and features the actress in a leading role as well.
In the trailer, Thapa is seen playing mentor to a girl while she is also featured in a couple of action sequences.
The trailer starts with a few shots from what looks like a rural village, and is followed by a proclamation by Thapa—“If there is someone to be afraid of it’s the educated and the privileged, who hide under the shallow veneer of prosperity, not the poor and the underprivileged … “Darr nirdha ra nirdhan ko hoina, darr ta yeha sikshit ra sampannata ko khol odhne ko chha”. The film seems to put light on the malpractice of child marriage.
The screenplay of the film is written by Shivam Adhikari, the writer/director of Panchayat, Nepal’s official selection for Foreign Language Oscar this year. Alongside Thapa, Maaleekaa also features Kamala Oli in the lead role.
The film is slated for release on November 2, 2018.
