Releasing more than one film on the same date has now become common. This year, even more stuck due to the corona epidemic and newly produced films are clashing on the same date. Four films ‘Bulaki’, ‘Nain Nabhannoo La 6’, ‘Jari’ and ‘Bihe Paas’ are competing on the 1st of Baisakh. Among them, not only the release date of ‘Bulaki’ and ‘Jari’ is the same, but also the story. Both are made in the ongoing tradition.
‘Bulaki’ has spoken about the ongoing practice in Karnali region, while ‘Jari’ has made the ongoing practice in the Limbu community the main theme. The trailer of both the films gives a glimpse of strong visual language. However, when two films with the same plot are screened together, there is a possibility that the audience will be divided. However, due to the storyline, expectations are high among the audience towards both the films.
Bulaaki’s lead actress Suraksha Pant considers the clash of the two films as a healthy competition. A few days ago, she said at the trailer release event, ‘Two films have been made on two different stories. After all, women’s suffering and suffering are the same. And, in my opinion, you should watch both films. Let us all support both films made to end the ongoing practice.’
It is said that Surksha has become a ‘bulaki’ to inform in detail about the ongoing practice. ‘How many of us do not know in detail about the ‘Jari’ practice. This film has been made to understand what happens to the psychology of women and men in the society when the practice continues and to make people realize that this system is still being ‘practiced’,’ she said. He believes that ‘Bulaki’ will play a role in bringing about change in the society.
Similarly, director Laxman Sunar clarified that although the theme of ‘Bulaki’ and ‘Jari’ is the same, both are made in different geographies and cultures. ‘We have told the story of the West, while ‘Jari’ has told the story of the East. They have made films in their culture and we have made them in our culture. The screenplay of both the films is also different. However, the ongoing practice is a common story, said Sunar.
