Kathaputali’s first-look poster released
The first-look poster of the upcoming Nepali horror feature film 'Kathaputali' was released by the makers. The film is due for release by the end of 2019.
Kathaputali is a periodic horror feature film entirely based on the terrifying and unique Nepali horror myths and rituals. According to Sampada Malla, the writer and executive producer of Kathaputali, "The story revolves around a fantasy kingdom where the rulers are tyrant dictators, who sexually assault innocent women for pleasure and kill them. These dead women in turn create an interesting plot for revenge against their perpetrators, resulting into terrifying horror elements."
Kathputali's Producer Prithvi Rana Magar says, "After having directed and produced two Nepali feature films, Hungama and Paryo Ni Maya Jalaima, I wanted to produce a film that would leave a lasting impression in the audience's mind. And with my horror feature Kathaputali, I am really confident of that. It is something that we have heard of, but never seen in any Nepali horror films."
Veemsen Lama is debuting as a director with this film. A number of his Nepali short films have been selected and awarded in many prestigious film festivals. He says, "I have always been very passionate about the horror genre and have made more than sixteen short horror movies. Kathaputali is my dream project and I will leave no stones unturned to ensure that audience will not only enjoy the film but be terrified during the entire film."
Kathaputali stars big names from the industry including Gauri Malla, Mithila Sharma, Karma Shakya, Shilpa Maskey, Usha Rajak, SubarnaThapa and many others in the pivotal roles.
The cinematographer of the film, Joel Froome is Hollywood's 'ACS' degree holder while all works on the post production of the film is going on in London.
The film has been produced under the banner "Prithvi Rana Productions". The producers of the film are Prithvi Rana Magar and Ishwor Rai while the film is co-produced by Mike Aryal, Bishal Gurung, Dharma Shrestha and Hem Thapa.
