5 Things About Laure
REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Nov 25: We know him as Laure. Aasis Rana, 25, created quite a stir among the youth when he participated in Raw Barz in 2013. The videos of the rap battles became instantly popular, making him famous.

The Pokhara native has a number of songs, out of which ‘Mero Solta’ has become very popular. The rap artist went on to act in Murray Kerr’s ‘Tandav’ with Anup Baral and Namrata Shrestha.
Jessabelle : A Gothic Ridiculousness
Pragyan Thapa
KATHMANDU, Nov 25: It’s that strange sense of expectancy that builds early on while watching a horror film at the theaters. It leads from the point before the movie begins, just when the commercials die down. A viewer turns into an active participator in those moments, alert with a defensive attention, determined not to be caught off guard when the chills kick in. Usually the routine is not to lowball anything too soon, because even the most ineffective of horror flicks pack one or two ingeniously scary moments. But Jessabelle is a complete wash-out.

Jessabelle, dubbed as a southern gothic tale, entices you early on. The central character Jessie, played by Sarah Snook, is hauled recklessly out of her treasured life within the first five minutes of the movie: A pregnant Jessie is packing her stuff in her boyfriend’s car, psyched to move in with him. They both seem this would be the perfect start to welcome their baby but a tragic car collision reels Jessie back to zero – she loses both her boyfriend and her unborn baby and the accident restricts her to a wheel-chair. Having no other alternative, she finally locates her estranged father (David Andrews). Her father comes to pick her up and Jessie moves back to her parental home, which in turn becomes the sole conspirator in mentally and physically breaking down what’s left of Jessie.
Happy Ending By The Book, At Least!

KATHMANDU, Nov 24: A strong case can be made against Saif Ali Khan for brandishing his time and money in making it through as Bollywood’s answer to John Cusack.

His spell as the urbane, naïve (and often NRI) stud’s unappreciative tendencies for committal romance and adulthood started out from his breakout performances in the supporting roles he had in Dil Chahta Hai and Kal Ho Na Ho, and which further panned out sharply in much successful lead roles that he followed in Hum Tum, Salam Namaste and much recently in Cocktail.
'I Haven't Given Up On Music'
REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Nov 24: A decade ago, Bhugol Dahal’s tragic song ‘Yo Junima’ became very popular, making him one of the most loved artists in the Nepali music industry then. The song even won him the Hits FM Best Vocal Collaboration Award back then. But the audience heard very little of him
after that.

However, Bhugol says he hasn’t given up on music. With around 19 songs to his credit, out of which some have been aired on radio while some are yet to be released, the artiste has many plans to take his music career ahead. He has almost completed the composition of his new song ‘Samadhi’ and is working on its arrangement. “I’m planning to complete and launch its music video soon,” he said.
