Aama: Best movie to study about Panchayat system,

By Harsha Man Maharjan

I had heard a lot about this movie, but had not got a chance to watch it. This movie is not available in the market. So, i watched it for a research purpose from Nepal Television Program department few months ago. Some Nepali film scholars believe that it was a trend-setting cinema of Nepal which promoted existing political ideology i.e Panchayat system. It presents a story of young man who has returned Nepal from Indian Army on holiday. He was impressed by nascent ideology of party less Panchayat system and decided to serve the mother, Nepal. This cinema shows how that system was leading people in the road of development. This is the best movie to study Panchayat ideology established by King Mahendra in 1960s. It is interesting that NTV has no right to broadcast this movie since it is related to 'undemocratic' political ideology. Being a person interested in media history, i am delighted to see this movie in You Tube. Hats off to the person who has uploaded it.
