Popular meme page, ‘meme Nepal’ was sued for their review on ‘Bir Bikram 2’ in their official YouTube channel. The review was posted on May 22.
Director of the movie, Milan Chams showed concerns against the page for making a review. Chams alleged the presenter (Pranesh Gautam) to be under the influence of drugs while doing the review. On a recent interview with Canada Nepal, Chams said, “The act of insulting Nepali actors and the entire Nepali film industry was prominent for quite some time. So, someone had to raise a voice against it.”
Recently, ‘meme Nepal’ also posted a statement on their defense saying it was an honest movie review. “The presenter talked about the good and bad things about the movie. There were proper disclaimers about the content in the video and the channel,” read the statement.
As soon as the claim was put forward, the internet received equal supporting and criticizing views. Shyam Shahu Shrestha, a movie enthusiast said, “I don't personally support ‘meme Nepal’ but the decision to sue a meme page on criticizing a movie seems kind of farfetched. As a cinema fan, it is quite disappointing that Nepali movie has been plagued by nepotism and other causes.”
