The Cinema Times, Kathmandu – ‘Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.’- Aristotle. And cinema for the eyes without touching the heart is no cinema at all! ‘Degree Maila’ proves to be a vision for the soul.

First it is a Ram Babu Gurung directorial. Ram Babu Gurung’s name is now synonymous with making socially relevant cinemas and ‘Degree Maila’ is one of them. And he has a winner on his hands. From the maker of blockbuster Kabaddi series, one can expect another reality based cinema.

Next strong aspect of the cinema is its actors.The cinema takes on the education system via a stellar ensemble cast comprising Dayahang Rai, Aanchal Sharma, Maotse Gurung, Prakash Ghimire, Bijay Baral, Buddhi Tamang, Kamal Mani Nepal and Pashupati Rai.

The plot is very relevant and I bet most youths will relate to it. The cinema talks about the educated unemployment issues among the youths of the nation. The story is pertinent in today’s time as there are many educated-jobless youths. Degree in one hand and no job in the other hand! After being qualified, one does expect a good job, lucrative salary and a better lifestyle; these dreams are like making castles in the air.The country’s condition is definitely a bitter pill to swallow. This is the reality the youths are facing and is relatable.
