Sikkim first in Nepali films

Gangtok, Nov. 22: The first Nepali film made entirely in Sikkim with an all Sikkimese cast will have its premiere in a theatre here on Sunday.

Promos of the film, Tyag, are currently dominating local cable and radio channels. The premiere will be held at the Vajra theatre in Baluakhani here.

“We shot the entire film within the state. We especially wanted to highlight the beautiful locations of Sikkim,” said Ranjit Singh, who has written and directed Tyag.

Singh has woven the story of Tyag around the lead pair of Devang Sunar and Nivedita Pariyar, both upcoming actors from Sikkim.

Though mounted as a mainstream, commercial film, Tyag does touch upon subjects like exploitation of women and AIDS.

Kaala Multimedia Centre, Gangtok, has produced the film, the shooting for which began on May 20. The total budget of the film is around Rs 40 lakh.

Madhusudhan Lama and Suman Karki have composed the music while the producers got local singers like Tupden Bhutia, Sonam Doma Bhutia and Lapka Tamang for the background scores.
In the past, a couple of Nepali films have been produced in Sikkim but local actors and support staff had no more than token presence in those films.

However, for Tyag, the producers only had the shooting equipment and other technical gadgets brought from outside the state. For everything else, they depended on local resources.

If Tyag is successful, it will give a big boost to the Nepali film industry in Sikkim, said an observer.
