India’s neighboring country Bollywood and South films have built a big empire in Nepal. If we look at last year’s figures, ‘KGF 2’, ‘Pathan’ and ‘Brahmastra’ earned more than 36 crores in Nepal. And a large part of it entered India. While Indian films are making crores in Nepal, Nepali films have not even reached India. Its doors were opened last year by the film ‘Prem Geet 3’.
Dubbed in Hindi, this film, which was screened in theaters in India, is reported to have grossed 3 cores rupees. This number may be very small in comparison, but as it opened the door for Nepali films in the Indian market, it is a historical achievement. Nepali films will be able to show their presence in the Indian market if they are able to make quality films.
After ‘Prem Geet 3’, the trend of dubbing Nepali films into Hindi has started. Some movies have been dubbed. Some are in preparation. Two years ago, director Milan Chams dubbed the film ‘Veer Vikram 2’ in Hindi with plans to release it in Indian theaters. However, due to the corona epidemic, his plan could not be successful. Later the film was released on Nepal’s YouTube channel.
The movie ‘Sushree Sampati’ has also been dubbed in Hindi and released on YouTube. However, the dubbing of this film is weak. ‘Prema’, which was shown last year, has also been dubbed in two Indian languages (Telugu and Tamil). The production team is planning to release the film in OTT in India. The movie ‘Harry Ki Pyaari’ has also been dubbed in Hindi, Punjabi, Marathi and Bengali languages.
Similarly, director Mukund Bhatt is planning to release his new film ‘X9’ in Pan India and dub it in other provincial languages of India along with Hindi. For this he is making some Indian actors act. After ‘Premgeet 3’, actor Pradeep Khadka’s new film ‘Camino’ is also being dubbed in Hindi. The film will also be shown in English and Spanish.
The movie ‘Parastri’, which is going to be released on Jestha 15th, is also being prepared in Hindi language. Producer Sharmila Pandey posted a video on Facebook on Tuesday and informed that the film is being dubbed in Hindi. If ‘Prem Geet 3’ had not been dubbed in Hindi and screened in theaters in India, it might have taken some time to launch. For this, ‘Prem Geet 3’ deserves praise.
