Kathmandu, August 14, 2016: The trailer for the forthcoming sci-fi feature Bijuli Machine has been released. The film has been directed by Navin Awal.

â€œThe film presents the story of two friends who are studying scienceâ€”one, aiming to come up with a new discovery that would solve the fuel shortage, and another, with a unnatural knack for science,â€ informed director Awal, speaking during the release event in the Capital, â€œBoth the friends are frustrated with the fuel shortage and want to come up with ideas that would solve this conundrum.â€
The release event also saw politician Dr Minendra Rijal, who hailed the crew for coming up with an innovative plot. â€œThe subject the film pivots around is relatively new for me,â€ he said, â€œI expect it will be a good watch.â€ Also present at the event was MP Gagan Thapa.
