Nikhil is unwilling to return back to Kathmandu and did dubbing of a movie in Mumbai. Although Nikhil Upreti did his best not to leave any unfinished projects; there are reports of problems to the directors and producers of various movies due to Nikhil’s absence.
For a movie he did dubbing in Mumbai last week and there is report of Rajesh Hamal replacing Nikhil in a movie named ‘Mato’. The director of the movie Kishor Subba told that Nikhil promised to act in the movie but he didn’t show up in the shooting. After a wait for sometime, Subba decided to sign-in Rajesh Hamal for the role.
In the Nepali new year, we are looking at the new faces, in leading roles, in Nepali movies. In the 42 movies released this year, most of the actors were well known actors like Rajesh Hamal, Biraj Bhatt, Nikhil Upreti, Rekha Thapa and so on. There were few new actors with potential to succeed in Nepali movies:
- Saujanya Subba – from TV to big screen with ‘Takkar Dui Mutu ko’ and upcoming movie ‘Aujar’, ‘Swavhiman’, and ‘Jaya Hos’.
- Sunita Gandarva – from modeling to acting with ‘Yeti ko Khojima’ and upcoming movie ‘Chino’

Measure of success of a movie can be different for different people. Some gauge the success on the revenue it brings to the producer and others measure it on the satisfaction it can give to the viewers. It is much easier to quantify the profit than the quality of movie.
Top movies released in 2066, according to the profit they have made are:
- Kaha Bhetiyala
- Mero Euta Saathi Chha
- Kaha Chau Kaha
- Afno Manche Afnai Hunchha
- Dosti *
- Hifajat *
In the above list, movies marked with * are recently released and actual statistics can’t be estimated.
‘Kaha Bhetiyala’, first movie of Shri Krishna Shrestha as a producer is considered best movie of the year 2066. Made in Rs. 8 million, the movie has already grossed Rs. 19 million and is expected to do more than a million business in coming days.

The model, Baby Thapa, also accused producer/director Sunilkumar Yadav (Prince) for doctoring the poster without her knowledge.

Uddav Poudel’s second movie from Gopi Krishna Movies (for Sayapatri Films)
In summary, the year 2009 wasn’t so good for Nepali film industry. Many of the movies screened in 2009 couldn’t profit due to lack of opportunity to get theater in time and low turn-up of viewers. In total 32 movies were released in 2009. It is told that only a couple out of the 32 movies could earn profit.
Most of the film halls all over the country are now equipped with digital technology and are hence capable of showing new Hindi movies. As Hindi movies are more profitable than Nepali movies for the film halls, Nepali movies had to wait in long queue for screening them in cinema halls of their choice.
Most profitable movies of 2009 were ‘Kaha Bhetiyala’ by produced by actor Shri Krishna Shrestha and ‘Silsila’ by CP Poudel.
Nepali film – Mission Paisa
Cast :Nikhil Upreti, Nisha Adhikari, Aayusha Basnet, Sunil Thapa, Suraj Rd, Amir Gautam etc.
