In recent times no one has quite caught the attention of Nepali movie goers like actor Bipin Karki. Watching him on screen, it is difficult to believe that it is the same actor who plays Bhasme don in Pashupati Prasad, Phanindra Timilsina in Jatra and Bindu Majhi in Chhadke. Karki breathes life into every character he plays studying them carefully to look and feel the part. Karki says it is this trait of getting into his role that has brought him success.

The character development begins from the time he gets a hold of the script. He submerges himself into the crowd in search of characters that match his role. He observes the body movements and the way of speaking of people and fuses them to create a style of his own. “I keep contemplating on how to make the roles I play more effective,” says Karki.

For his role as Bindu Majhi in the popular movie Chhadke, Karki went to Chitwan, spent time with the youths there and internalised their behavioural patterns. Bhasme don of Pashupati Prasad was based on Hari Thapa, a technician working in the same movie. Karki even changed his voice throughout the movie, the impersonation was such that the crew including the director thought Karki had caught a cold.

During the shooting of Jatra, director Pradip Bhattarai often said the character Phanindra Timilsina was based on himself. So Karki took it upon himself to observe how Bhattrai talked, moved and the facial expression he had when happy and stressed. Says Karki, “If you look closely, you will find that Jatra’s Phanindra is Bhattrai himself.”
