What’s Good: Actor’s performance and comic timing, dialogues which will make you laugh throughout the film, multiple layers of the society which is linked with Maoists insurgency period.
What’s Bad: Just when you are enjoying the first half fully, during the end of second half becomes boring at some places but dialogues will hold you back to seat.

Woda Number 6 Movie Review:
Woda Number 6 ‘s story is written by Deepak Raj Giri which is an appreciable one. Movie will portray the real scenario of the village during the insurgency time and how police and Maoists’ action leads many youths to join Maoists unknowingly. And what will be the affect to the village and people has been presented very wisely. Such strong plot has been presented in an entertaining way which is an appreciable thing.
We can find many characters in the movie and every characters has been written very finely so that it justifies the story fully. Dialogues of Deepak Raj Giri are funnier which will keep you laugh throughout the film. At some place screenplay looses its pace at second half but that god to the dialogues and actors who will keep you holding till the climax. If the second half was written hardly than movie would have been a perfect but the dialogues saves the weak aspects of the film.
All the top actors from the small screens are featured in the film and every one have done fine job. We can’t imagine the replacement of these lead actors. Sitaram Kattel as Netra Prasad, Kedar Ghimire as Magne Budo, Dayahang Rai as Daya, Deepak Raj Giri as Deep Sharma, Jeetu Nepal as Bikha Bahadur, Priyanka Karki as Sushila have portrayed their character finely. Wilson Bikram Rai, Deepa Shree Niraula and Sandip Chettri have special appearance which is good. Deepa Shree Niraula’s character Comrade Pratigya and Magne Budo’s chemistry and their scenes are funny. Magne Budo’s love letter is hilarious.
Director Ujjwal Ghimire has return back to direction after around four years. Ujjwal has presented the film very finely which will please the audience of all level. Ujjwal has made the film entertaining to children, family and youths when the story have a strong linkage with Maoists insurgency. You will find rare dull moments in the film.
Alish Karki’s background score is good. Sugam Pokharel’s song Waiyaat Love Story and Rajan Raj Siwakoti’s Surke Thaili are melodious songs which are placed at right place. Ghambir Bista and Shankar BC’s choreography is appreciable.
Woda Number 6 is more than what you expect from the trailer. More in terms of entertainment which will hold you in the theaters. If you have loved Cha Ekan Cha than you will surely enjoy this film. A perfect film to celebrate new constitution of Nepal along with you family. Strongly Recommended. Don’t miss!!
