How many Nepali movies have depicted stories of the poor working class and their problems? One might be able to count the number on their hands. The film industry and its audience have a habit of watching movies with glitz and glam, where good looking actors dance to groovy music, travel to picturesque locations and are muddled in larger-than-life drama.
However, in 2013, director Joes Pandey took a risk and delivered a psycho-social drama based on the problems faced by the working classes.
Saanghuro is a movie about Krishna (Shushank Mainali), a newspaper seller, who lives with his mother (Aruna Karki) in squalor. Krishna marries his lover Kamala (Deeya Maskey), a domestic helper. However their economical situation forces them to share a room with his mother; what unfolds is a psycho-social drama of how human lives are affected when needs go unfulfilled.
