The Number 1 actress is no longer the top actress in the Nepali film industry – according to a survey among 10 well known Nepali directors. In fact, Shilpa has gone a rank higher than Rekha Thapa. It seems, she is on her path to be the top actress.
Watch the top 10 actresses:
Personally, I think other actresses deserve the top position rather than actress Keki Adhikari. It could be either Namrata Shrestha or Priyanka Karki. Namrata has won all the film awards this year. She has a very good track record of successful movies. Priyanka Karki is also a good actress and one of the busiest actress in the film industry.
Keki is a good actress but, she hasn’t been careful in her choice of movies. Although she has done a very good job, none of her movies have been that successful.
This list of top 10 actresses was chosen from the views of the following directors by ‘Today’, a weekly of Annapurna Post:
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.
