UMA (Nepali, 2013) is written, directed and produced by Tsering Rhitar Sherpa and stars Recha Sharma, Saugat Malla, Mithila Sharma, Prawin Khatiwada, Dayahang Rai, Pramod Agrahari and others. The screenplay is written by Tsering Rhitar Sherpa, Tsering Choden and Kumar Bhattarai.
Uma is based on Nepal's violent civil war between the government and Maoist guerrillas. The United States had supported the Nepali monarchy with arms and training for the conflict. Recha Sharma plays a Maoist rebel leader, whose brother is a cop.
Sharma caught the eye of Nepali film lovers with her role in the moderately successful VISA GIRL. Uma is Tsering Rhitar Sherpa's third feature film after Mukundo and Karma.
Over 15,000 people died in the Nepali civil war before truce was singed in 2006.
The film is expected to have a release date in April or May of 2013 under the banner of Mila Productions.
