In just shy of a decade, breakout Puerto Rican action star, actor Jose Manuel has proven himself to be a purely prospective candidate for genre fans who love films of the fightin’ kind. Well on his way to a second feature lead outing in the long-developed The Man From Kathmandu, the film’s regional Nepali release now has its own official teaser for local filmgoers following its international trailer from a few months back.
A disaffected American – Nepali half Hindu – Muslim boy detours to Kathmandu on his way to find his father who thinks has joined the war in Syria, but his battle against a local don who kills his grandfather grounds him to the reality of his relationships and and in the process he re-connects with his roots, culture and traditions of the Himalayan nation, which he had forgotten and both his external and internal journey changes.
Expect martial arts action of some of the best kind, designed by Manuel and his team fresh from years of showcasing their talents on YouTube, now in a position to combine imported and local stunt talent for what looks to be a fantastic martial arts hero epic.
Manuel is joined by Gulshan Grover and actress Anna Sharma among the cast, and from director Pema Dhondup.
