I am so happy to know that “Highway” Nepali movie is nominated under the panorama fictional films section in 62nd Berlin Festival. It’s a milestone to Nepali Film Industry. The story goes like this: a man from Kathmandu and his wife have been trying unsuccessfully to have a child. The man travels to the mountains of eastern Nepal to seek help from a miracle healer. The healer indeed has a magic potion for him but tells the man he must get back to his wife within thirty-six hours for the medicine to work. The bus that winds its way through the narrow streets, hills and valleys of Nepal is full of people who all need to be somewhere else in a hurry – to meet an internet chat lover, bring someone some money for medicine, or to visit their parents. But the travellers are obliged to stop again and again on account of general strikes, traffic jams, breakdowns and angry villagers. Some of these obstacles are overcome by the passengers themselves, who get to know each other during the trip they even dress up as a wedding party in order to be allowed to keep moving. Meanwhile, at home, everything has changed.
