Tshe Chonga or whatever, a recent movie being played in Bhutan is reported to be a remake of a hit Nepali film. Now talking of remakes, why on earth do our filmmakers want to copy other people's work of art? We have our own story to tell, our own tradition to show, our own pride to chew...

Maybe I am wrong (I wish I were wrong!), but this remake thing is too embarrassing (at least to me). I didn't even watch the Oscar Nominated The Departed, since it was a remake of hit Hongkong flick, The Infernal Affairs.

Um, what was that Bhutanese film that was a remake of Korean movie, My Sassy Girl?
