Deuta was written and directed by Tulsi Ghimire and released in 1991. Many consider the performance by megastar Rajesh Hamal in this film as his career best. Srijana (Srijana Basnet), an amateur painter, hesitates to marry the only son of her father’s business partner. Instead, she wants to learn painting and wants to visit her paternal aunt in a remote village, where she meets Sonam (Shrawan Ghimire) and Shankar (Rajesh Hamal). A triangular love among three begins and flows through the course of the movie.
