Nepali cinema has taken a significant leap forward, making history in the United States with the highly anticipated release of “Pashupati Prasad 2: Bhasme Don.” This groundbreaking film, a sequel to the critically acclaimed “Pashupati Prasad,” has taken the Nepali community in the USA by storm. What makes this release even more remarkable is the fact that box office tickets are opening two weeks before the screening and the first show in the USA will begin before its debut in Nepal.
A Sequel That Keeps Audiences Guessing
The original “Pashupati Prasad” movie, featuring Khagendra Lamichhane as the titular character, was a massive success. However, it was Bipin Karki’s portrayal of the enigmatic “Bhasme Don” that left a lasting impression on viewers. His unique manner of speaking and distinctive appearance created a brand of its own. In “Pashupati Prasad 2: Bhasme Don,” the story takes a twist. It revolves around Bhasme Don’s struggles in the Pashupati area following the demise of his rival, Pashupati Prasad.
In this sequel, Bhasme Don is portrayed as a character with a good side, a far cry from his previous image. The addition of new lead actors, Saugat Malla and Swastima Khadka, adds depth to the narrative. Saugat Malla takes on the role of another influential figure in the area, a formidable gangster. Swastima Khadka, on the other hand, plays the character of Mata, adding further intrigue to the story.
An Unprecedented Release Schedule
The buzz surrounding this film has reached a fever pitch in the Nepali cinema industry. Due to the ongoing Dashain Festival and the associated celebrations, the release of “Pashupati Prasad 2: Bhasme Don” is being strategically split into multiple dates. The movie will premiere in Dallas and a few other cities on October 20th, making it a Dashain gift to the Nepalese diaspora living in the United States.
However, the excitement doesn’t end there. The movie will be subsequently released in Bay Area, Chicago, Austin, and more cities on October 27th. What’s even more special are the various special screenings of the film that have been scheduled.
