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.
In the above list, movies marked with * are recently released and actual statistics can’t be estimated.
â€˜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.
Arjun Karki, Suman Singh, and Dilip Rayamajhi were average in the year. Shri Krishna Shrestha acted in only one, but most successful movie of the year, â€˜Kaha Bhetiyala’ and is actually the best actor of the year.
The Nepali movie industry saw a bit of a relief as compared to the previous years in 2066 BS. The number of movies being produced was increased and those released in the year have done satisfactory business. Most of the movies did average business. Some of the high expected movies like ‘Kusume Rumal 2′ couldn’t do good business and some unexpected movies like â€˜Eku’ took the stage and did better than average business in the year 2066.
Although there was quantitive increase in moves, qualitive increase couldn’t be seen with a few exception. Most of the movies had stories copied from some foreign movies. The extreme of which could be seen in the copy-cat posters.
