YouTuber Biswas Timshina is a valued presence in the Nepali YouTube sphere. In a world that is overtaken by unlimited repetitions of the same few formulas, Timshina has been offering up high-quality laughs to his viewers for the last three years. His comedic paradigm involves parody songs, stand-up comedy performances, and most famously, his reviews of bad films.
Find pretty much any Nepali youngster today and you can reliably begin a conversation with them based solely on one-liners from BT Kancha movie reviews. If one were to send you a text that says “Aes” instead of “Yes”, you will probably know how to read it exactly.
BT Kancha movie reviews never seem to get old, even three years after they get published. If there was an award for the Nepali-language YouTuber you never want to miss, he would be the most deserving nominee. So, let’s take a look back at some of his most valued movie reviews. Here are 8 of the worst movies that were reviewed by BT Kancha — along with his funniest one-liners from the reviews themselves.
Balatkari Bhoot is one of the most bizarre discoveries by BT Kancha within his bad movie reviews series. The movie is simply absurd in every single way — from the title, to the premise, to the way in which the entire film was built. One might even go so far as to say that the movie found its true purpose in becoming the subject of a BT Kancha video.
- “I don’t want to be someone jasle manche ko appearance herera uslai judge garcha but I think he is the balatkari bhoot.”
- “Kondo kondo….”
Kri is going to be the first of many Anmol KC movies that make it into this list. BT Kancha fans have long known that he is especially partial towards the glorious two-hour trainwrecks that are Anmol KC movies. His Anmol KC reviews teach you how to appreciate the special beauty of these cinematic artworks. His review of Kri is the definitive BT Kancha take on Anmol KC. The best part about the review is probably also an underrated one.
The movie features a disturbing scene in which Anmol KC’s character openly harasses Aditi Budathoki’s character. The scene is played off as romantic in the movie, but it is anything but. BT Kancha exposed this hypocrisy by playing a creepy criminal soundtrack alongside the scene. All of a sudden, Anmol KC begins to look like a villain.
- “Haina yo manche sacchee laure ho? Euta sunburn pani chhaina ta! AC room ma basera border protect garcha kyao!”
The Famous is a movie about a school student who is really famous. That’s literally the whole premise of this movie. Understanding how such an idea actually made it into a fully-fledged movie will probably earn you a PhD. And BT Kancha never lets up on the filmmakers for making a movie out of such an absurd premise. The lead character in the film is so famous that characters literally start singing “He is famous” when he walks into the school. Is this satire? Comedy? Surrealism? One can never know.
- “No wonder he’s famous. Estooo khatra backflip gardo raicha ram shankar…..”
- “Jaha samma malai Nepali movie ma bharosa chha, yo manche pakkai brain tumor bhayera marcha lastma.”
For some reason, College Life has received some of the most brutal roasts by BT Kancha in all his videos. Of course, it is all good-natured. Although movies like The Famous and Balatkari Bhoot probably have more outright absurdity, College Life is no less on this front. It’s just that this movie gives you the absurdity in bits and pieces.
- “Also yo ke shot ho? Ma tyo railing ma lageko khiya hernu ki esko khiya lageko anuhar hernu!”
- “Geet ko naam ho Jhatka. You know how I know it? Dedh saya khep ta bhaneko cha yo geet ma.”
Captain is a pretty standard Nepali film, all things considered. But BT Kancha’s review of the film is supremely entertaining. It seems he had a lot of fun making this video. It is full of entertaining quips, not the least of which is the unique way in which he says “bhakundo”. He also spends a good few minutes enacting a skit where he exposes the abject misogyny of Nepali filmmakers. It is filled with about 20 “kyaO”s a minute, but the “kyao” is simply the BT Kancha signature!
- “Euta khutta football ground ma arko khutta shamshaan ghat ma… kaa chalcha ta yaar.”
Jerry is one of the classic Anmol KC movies that every Nepali movie fan has watched at least once. Once again, Anmol KC appears as an uppity womaniser who falls in love with a kind-hearted girl. And BT Kancha needs nothing more to give his viewers 15 minutes of full-toss entertainment. The video also dives deep into a few jokes, which extend up to minutes at a time. But at no time do you feel the urge to skip. And for that, we thank Jerry.
- “I’m not saying ki Anmol KC is a bad actor. I’m just saying harek dialogue ma munto ra haat hallaunu pardaina.”
- “Inaharu le ta ‘cha’ akshar ko ta bahikar nai garisakeka chhan ta hou.”
- “So keti le mukh dhhunche ani keta love ma parna thalcha. It’s so simple.”
BT Kancha calls Bindaas a “very classy movie” and we are inclined to agree with the sentiment. The movie is uniquely imaginative in its thrashyness. It is probably the only film in history that introduces the hero while he’s literally pooping. It’s so thrashy that BT Kancha actually rethinks his decision to start making YouTube videos midway through the review.
- “Chheu ma fililm ko hero roadside ma hagirako huncha.”
The Marshal Art
An honest attempt to make a proper martial arts movie in Nepal, The Marshal Art gets the spelling wrong from the get-go. The movie poses a character named Anil Rai as a highly skilled martial arts hero. It is also filled with extremely cliched one-liners that are supposed to be badass introductions of characters, the most prominent one being “Mero naam ho Anil Rai, yo Rai ko shot khayesi bhanchas sabailai bye.” BT Kancha goes into the nitty gritty with this movie, and his observations are absolutely hilarious.
- “Haina yo ke class ho hou. Student beech ta education gap po huncha ta. Yaa ta generation gap po chha ta.”
- “My lord… women empowerment?”
