Go To

"Don't you dare look down upon me as impoverished. I shall not even lay to rest the ashes of my parents until I pay back your debt."
Pashupati Prasad, to his father's landowner

Pashupati Prasad is a 2016 Nepali movie directed by Dipendra Khanal. The script-writing was done by Khagendra Lamichhane, who plays the eponymous Pasupati Prasad.

The main plot of the movie goes like so: Pashupati's parents die in the 2015 Nepal quake before they can pay back their debt to their landowner (jamindar). With the jamindar threatening to seize his family's land, it now rests upon Pashupati's shoulders to clear the debt so that his parents may enter heaven.


This film contains examples of:

  • The Alcoholic: Pashupati's Mit Baa.
  • Alliterative Title: The title Pashupati Prasad repeats the letter "P".
  • Combat Pragmatist: Our titular hero will not hesitate to punch the local small-time goon Bhasme in his family jewels. Justified, as Bhasme and his two followers are ganging up on the lone protagonist.
  • Homeless Hero: Pashupati does have a home back in Sindhupalchowk, but in Kathmandu he is eventually forced to sleep in a small chamber within a temple.
