‘Na Yeta Na Uta’, releasing this Friday is the story of two middle aged men. After they fail to find brides for themselves and lose their jobs in London, they return to Nepal looking for a start all over. However, they find someone from the hotel where they are staying and befriend him, camaraderie with whom turn their lives around.
It is not every week that movies released in our tinsel town have such offbeat casts and storyline. The flow of story is alright and the target audience can be satisfied with the humor within, albeit it is too ridiculous and overly slapstick at times. Occasional twists in the story keeps the viewers engaged and manage to show that this movie has some heart as well. It is not too bad an attempt from a debutant director.
Songs are okay, “Choli ko tuna” being the best of the lots. The movie stars acclaimed actors with the likes of RajaramPaudel, Reecha Sharma, ChhulthimGurung, BuddhiTamang, RabindraJha andLoonivaTuladhar. However, as the story revolves around Samir and Miraj, all the others have very little to do. The movie’s plot is original to Nepali viewers and Chhulthim dazzles on screen. In fact, it seems all the actors seem to be aware that it is a venture made in lightheartedness and not to take things seriously.
Both male lead actors are shown butt ugly at the beginning is a proof that they are aware of how they will be perceived. This movie has the impression of a comedy, yet the drama within wins over in the second half. This can be an enjoyable venture, provided that viewers acknowledge the pretext that it’s an unconventional movie about people who have hit midlife crisis.
