  EXTRACTS Of characters and their stories  
  BY DIYA MASKEY  
 
I haven’t finished reading the book yet. It’s a brilliant autobiography of a famous Norwegian actor and film director written a quarter of a century ago. But these two lines immediately managed to capture my interest since they are right at the beginning of the autobiography. These words seem simple and they have been written matter-of-factly. And yet, at the same time, as a woman, I feel the pain concealed beneath them.

No matter how modern or progressive we become, there’s this invisible boundary that always tethers a woman to a position beneath a man. And this is true even in the context of the most developed nations in the world. And I have personally experienced the small, seemingly insignificant things that may otherwise pass unnoticed but are actually nuances of the discriminatory attitude that the society still holds for its female members.

    Film review

    KATHMANDU, April 18:
    The Marvel World never looked this good. From crisp VFX to a cohesively structured story, The Winter Soldier combines thematic brilliance with top quality visuals. The first Captain America movie may have introduced a template super-hero, but this installment puts Captain America into a proper resilience test. Here, we get a closer picture of both Steve Rogers and his responsibilities as the dedicated super-soldier Captain America – a patriotic figure always on duty.

    More than just saving the world from an evil master-mind of a villain, The Winter Soldier serves a politically contextual stand on present day issues like unethical use of surveillance technology and the much anticipated debate on government secrets and the people’s right to information. Above all the chaos, Captain America is a metaphor for the endangered humanistic virtues of honesty and brotherhood. A reason why Captain appears more approachable than rest of the Avengers is that he thinks with a naïve but a truly justifiable standpoint. He’s the old-school definition of an ideal gentleman.   [More]
