KATHMANDU, Sept 1: Director of the newly released film ‘Utsav’, Kumar Bhattarai, has been in the film industry for quite some time now. Although this is his first venture as a director, he has been associated in films like ‘Dashdhunga’, ‘Acharya’ and ‘Uma’ in various roles like assistant director, dialogue writer and screenplay writer.
Bhattarai likes to call ‘Utsav’ a thorough entertainer. “I’ve never believed in categorizing films as ‘art’ and/or ‘commercial’. I believe that every film is a piece of art and when it gets exhibited in the cinema halls, it serves the commercial purpose,” he says.
