Kathmandu portrays the lives of the over- ambitious Nepali youths in the remote villages who enter Kathmandu(capital city) in quest of opportunity.But, unfortunately,befriend with the bad company and spoil their lives(lets not say the whole story).
More than the entertainment, the movie endeavors to instruct and inform the younger generation who are prone to various anti social activities including smoking,drinking, sex, drug addiction and so on.
