The new Director’s cut “Ko Afno REDUX” confidently lives up to the name, definitely a recommendation for anyone who likes epic thriller/drama movies. The new version completes many parts of the story line. The characters are much more interesting and many subplots are more emotion packed.

Director Anil Thapa chimes “Filmmakers often have to edit out some of their favorite scenes in order to meet runtime requirements or appease distributors/studio executives. Sometimes, they compromise their original vision; other times, well-crafted scenes must be left on the proverbial cutting-room floor. Either way, the relatively rare director's cut allows them the opportunity to present the version of the film they set out to make”. This is precisely the case with Ko Afno REDUX. This extended version allows for a coherent narrative structure and helps to tie together the film, making the storyline smoother and more cohesive.

Gabe Videla, Associate Producer of Mel Gibson’s Oscar Nominated “Hacksaw Ridge” said after watching the Extended CUT, Ko Afno Redux, “The Director's Cut allows for rich subplots, characters and other overlooked moments to shine. That includes the left-out romantic scenes between Anamika and Prabal, that getting the chance to watch them fall in love is satisfying and their love story has a much stronger emotional punch. There are so many more brilliant additional scenes in the extended CUT that it's difficult to list them all. What's important to note is that most of the moments are emotionally driven character scenes, which will allow the audience to spend more time with beloved characters. The scenes that are extended with additional dramatic sequences are vey impressive because the creative execution of them is outstanding and exciting to behold”.
