Review of Muna Madan
I like watching films and watch one each day. I also like reading and often read books. Recently I saw a film named “Muna Madan” based on a story of a young man Madan. The main character in this film is a young Madan who struggles for life.
Madan leaves his family and country because he wants to earn money for a better future of his family. He goes to Lhasa, a province in China. There he works hard and earns enough. Then he decides to return. But he falls ill on the way. His friends leave him. Fortunately, a Sherpa, an inhabitant of Himalayan region, finds him and takes him to his house. He treats Madan, who recovers soon. While taking leave, Madan touches the man’s feet although he belongs to a higher caste. Here Madan utters the most famous line in Nepali literary works: a man becomes great not because of his caste but because of his noble heart. On receiving the news of his death, His wife and mother cannot bear this, and both die before he reaches home. The book ends as Madan sees no use of living without his beloved wife and mother.
The film, like the book, has shown the reality of that time as Madan represents his poor fellow countrymen. But it is also relevant today because many Nepalese are going to foreign countries to earn money for the better future of the family.
