The Black Hen Full Movie Hd 1080p Download Kickass Movie
We are in the year 2001, a temporary ceasefire brings a much-needed break to a small war-torn village in Northern Nepal, bringing much joy among the residents. Prakash and Kiran, two young close friends, are also starting to feel the change in the air. Though they are divided by caste and social creed, they remain inseparable, and start raising a hen given to Prakash by his sister, with hopes to save money by selling her eggs. However, the hen goes missing. To find it, they embark on a journey, innocently unaware of the tyranny brought by the fragile ceasefire.
They are bonded, nonetheless, by friendship and affection for a hen, whose eggs just might make a difference to Prakash's impoverished family. When the boy's father sells the bird, the chums desperately attempt to raise funds in order to buy it back.
The events in this movie takes place in Mugu during the Maoist insurgency of 2001. the first thing you need to know about this movie is that the main characters don't speak nepali as we know it. its hard to understand what they are saying and sometimes it feels like they are speaking a completely different language. There are nepali subtitles to help clear things out but if you are someone like me who don't have much talent in reading nepali then you probably wont understand most of the dialogues which unfortunately includes punchlines, ongoing jokes and some serious poetic lines as well. But its alright if you don't understand the dialogues because this movie speaks volumes through its visuals. Actually most of the storytelling is done through visual camera-work rather than dialogues. The cinematography is breathtaking and you cant really go wrong in placing the story against the backdrop of Mugu, which in itself is a very beautiful place.
The screenplay is brilliant, the acting top notch. Every character is brilliantly played. The child actors were specially good. There are very raw imagery of village life portrayed in this movie. and im surprised how dedicated these actors were to be involved in such a audacious project and to give their 100 % by sometimes even chewing on straws picked up from ground. and we thought Leo was a good actor just because he ate raw fish.
But what really amazed me was the score. the sound track is hauntingly beautiful and fits perfectly with the movie. Its ominous and sad and at the same time very thrilling and assuring. The sound quality of the dialogues and ambiance was top notch.the dialogue delivery felt very natural.
Now onto my gripes. what i really cant understand is why the director chose to film every scene in this movie from a static viewpoint. yes it works for sceneries as it gives a very cinematic look.But it doesn't make sense to film people talking in that technique. specially because the acting is so damn good in this movie.It wouldve been really nice if he had filmed some dialogues in shot reverse shot or even over the shoulder. But i guess the director had a reason and logic behind it. maybe i completely overlooked it. Oh and why cant nepali filmmakers use proper gun props. The pistols used in this movie looks so damn fake its ridiculous.
Kalo Pothi is a Mud-esque tale about loss and learning to let go. It explores themes such as innocence, growing up, violence and the impact it has on people.
Kalo pothi(The Black Hen) can be considered a giant leap in Nepalese cinematography(or movie making in general). The movie primarily intends to develop an abstract chemistry between the viewers and the characters and therefore, making the complicated storytelling as simplified and congenial as possible.While maintaining the element of anticipation, the movie mixes a host of parallel stories together.
The movie basically revolves around the pursuit of a hen a kid hides from his father when the village head orders each and every hen to be sold to him ( which the protagonist's father later sells to a stranger from a different village),but the motive of the storytelling is equally evident in the display of the premise behind the struggles most of the characters in the story have been going through.Based on the times that date back to the Maoist led insurgency in the country, the movie takes us back to a journey of the times when life in rural Nepal was highly perilous to most of the well off families(although it was equally volatile for the commoners as well). Despite being out of the movie's scope, and hardly elaborated with lucidness, the movie definitely depicts the traumas of poverty stricken population to some extent.The portrayal of selfless affectionate friendship between two kids separated by hierarchy of their social statuses(albeit sometimes highlighting the vulnerability in it),is also one of the major elements of the movie.
The background score in particular holds the mystery surrounding the probable plot twists, and does a brilliant job of maintaining a truly mesmerizing environment(even when the plot fails to maintain the attention of the viewers at some points). The way the director sometimes uses occasional non-linearity is highly commendable. At times, the motion picture goes to a break-point slow speeds which might cause some confusion in the viewer's minds, but everything seems well placed and every intent serves its purpose in a way the director is trying to convey some cryptic messages.
Most of the works in the use of symbolism and metaphors used in the movie might be new to Nepalese movie making, but public exposed to foreign movies should be able to comprehend and appreciate it, which, in turns, is a huge positive for the movie in terms of expressing its ingenuity.
Most of the characters have done an incredible job and have justified their particular roles. The quintessential display of the people belonging to Karnali is outstanding.
The lack of a consistent and a concrete story-line, however,(there is one, but it doesn't always stick strictly to it) might be a downside of the movie. Most Nepalese viewers in particular, expect to be avalanched by a string of emotionally powerful events rather than being exposed to a crescendo of tales that culminate into a rather obscure climax(which is the case in this movie). Hence, the lack of it might be something that they would surely find confusing to grasp.
The movie also fails to capture the raw natural beauty of the Karnali region for some reasons, and most shot selections are poor, considering how symbolic the other parts of the movie are. You could hardly ask a lot from a 90min documentary-ish movie, but there are still some parts that could have been improvised better, and some scenes that could have been elaborated with microscopic details, but the director chooses to let the viewers decide.
All in all, if you are anticipating a strong plot with an amiable narration from Kalo Pothi, you are certainly going to be disappointed. It is NOT an entertainment movie and neither is a war-time documentary that you can comprehend with ease. It is something which intrigues and (sometime devastates) you with its powerful imagery.
Many stories have been told in Nepalese cinema history but this one here is something you should be able to hear on your own, and not expect the plot to be elucidated line-by-line. The movie is class apart from what has been going in the mainstream Nepali cinema(i am talking about other powerful movies that have made it big in the industry recently), but only if you are able to match your expectations with the point it is trying to make. Sometimes spine chilling, the sketch is a haunting tale of beleaguered kinds that are somehow forced to succumb to the wartime chaos. An epic drama which may not be pleasing to the eye on the first watch, but one which will surely keep you moved and the terror and the tragic story will eventually linger in your brain for some time.
A definite, and a rare 8 considering the brave intent this movie has exposed us to.
