The much-awaited Nepali film Kabaddi 4, the latest and the final in the popular Kabaddi series opened to full houses on Friday, 27th May. And while many are still waiting for their tickets, clips from the movie have appeared on social media drawing objections from actors.
Kabaddi 4: The Final Match is a popular rom-com in the series which has been in the box office mojo. Likewise, this latest Rambabu Gurung-directed venture has also started on a high. Reportedly, the movie drew in 3.5 crores on Friday which is the record to date. Many have predicted the hyped-up movie to surpass the record set by the Chhakka Panja series which has been the most profiting Nepali movie in history.
However, the leaked spoilers could compromise the fun and finances both for the fans and the filmmakers alike.
Apparently, the cinemagoers took the clips with their smartphones inside the theatre. The clips apparently giveaway Kaji’s love mystery.
The movie has got everyone speculating whether “Kaji” has found his love at the end of the series. The character of Dayahang Rai was still unmarried after 3 previous installments and many are excited to learn of his marital status with this ultimate sequel. Chances are many of them have learned of it even without going to cinemas.
That is because some of those who have already watched the film couldn’t resist the temptation to let it be known on social media. This has drawn reactions from actors and other influential figures.
Dayahang Rai who is reprising the role of ‘Kaji’ has been left bemused by the shared clips. Writing a post on his Facebook account, he urged the fans not to record and share movie clips online.
“We are grateful to all of you viewers for your support and love. However, when you are watching a movie, taking out your mobile phone and making a video can compromise the experience for you, even more so for your close friend and to us too,” wrote the actor.
He also requests fans to enjoy the movie instead of taking time to record the movie clips.
Similarly, other prominent figures weighed in.
Actor Nishchal Basnet wrote, “Loving a movie means going to the cinema with a ticket and enjoying it. Posting clips on TikTok is ruining the fun for those wanting to watch the movie later and also pushing producers to the loss.”
He also called on theatre officials to be alert and help discourage the act.
Writer Buddhisagar also asked fans not to record and post clips from the movie. He says this is an injustice to others who are planning on going to watch the movie later.
Kabaddi 4: The Final Match is in theatres and has opened to rave reviews. The movie stars Dayahang Rai, Saugat Malla, and Miruna Magar in prominent roles. It has got a jaw-dropping 9.5 rating on IMDB.
