Mar 15, Kathmandu: The movie 'The Secrets of Radha', which was screened in August this year, will be screened in black and white version at the Nepal International Film Festival(NIFF).
Director Suvarna Thapa informed us that the "Director's Cut'' version of the film that has already been screened will be displayed at the festival. “The festival edition is different from the one performed in the hall. Since there is no pressure from the commercial side, the artistic side is dominant here", said director Thapa. The movie was shot in two versions, both color, and black and white. However, it was not possible to show the black-and-white version in public. Actress Shristi Shrestha is in the lead role in the movie and the story of a wife who goes out in search of her husband is shown.
