25th September 1915, British forces launched a major attack on the German position at Loos, France, hence commencing the Battle of Loos. Kulbir Thapa, a 26 yrs old Rifleman in the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Queen Alexandra’s Own Gurkha Rifles, was in one of the leading companies venturing deep into German lines, and it was the first time he had been under fire and short-lived hope of survival was all gone when he was severely wounded.

A survival story behind the enemy line itself is a praise-worthy tale of bravery but his story didn’t finish there. What unfolds next is a legendary tale of self-sacrifice, compassion, and friendship. The next day, on 26th September, for a fleeting moment, amidst burnt and grime filled no man’s land, he displayed much greater heroism than war- humanity. This earned him the first-ever Victoria Cross for Gurkhas but most importantly, on the day, it brought both British and German together, to acknowledge the sheer willpower of Gurkha.

Gurkha: Beneath The Bravery is the first-ever Gurkha movie based on real-life events, which tells the tale of legendary Sergeant Kulbir Thapa. For over 200 years, the legend of Gurkhas has been featured mostly as myths, but stories such as of Sergeant Kulbir Thapa deserve to be told to a wider audience on the big screen. The movie intends to be a bridge between the Nepalese and British communities and honor the hardships that they had endured together.

The movie is funded via crowd-funding with the cast and crew working on a voluntary basis. All the profit from the movie will be donated to the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
