Sherchan in his poem imagines Kathmandu as a ruthless pit that traps the residents within its four cliffs. People arrive into Kathmandu from all over Nepali villages with their hearts full of hope, and their eyes filled with dreams. But to survive in Kathmandu, they must conform to the city’s ruthless rules of modernity. In this hustle to be modern, the innocent change their values, their cultures, and their politics. Chiso Ashtray the film borrows from Sherchan’s idea of the city, and builds on it further. The film explores the true soul of Kathmandu questioning if Kathmandu is a cold ashtray or if it is actually a singing bowl?Chiso Ashtray is a postmodern drama that follows an innocent villager who dreams to make it big in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. But as he forces himself to be urban, to be modern, he risks losing his beliefs, his values, and his innocent soul to the ruthlessness of Kathmandu.
