Movie Review – Prasad (Namrata Shrestha, Bipin Karki, Nischal Basnet)

The movie ‘Prasad’ was released last week. The movie was well received by the critics and viewers. It started with house-full business. The movie is made on a very realistic love story with effective artistic aspects of cinema.

The movies shows a true reflection of the society and the people. Very good acting lead actors and very good presentation by carefully integrating the events in the story.

Video report:

Story – It is a simple story. A common and simple story of inter-caste marriage, and the childless couple. The movie is weaved in a neat and interesting fashion.

Artistic features: Visual cues of what is happening is interestingly crafter to make it appealing. The background sound and things at the background are also integrated to the story of the movie.

Sound and situations are used to show the emotions of the characters. The villain is more of a friend who doesn’t act abnormally. But, there are a lot of tension points that the directors has successfully shown.

How do I rank a movie?

I rank a film based on 10 different parameters. Then divide the rank by two to get the 5-star ranking. The factors I consider for the ranking is:

– Story and script
– Overall presentation of the movie, and editing
– Acting of lead artists
– Acting of supporting artists
– Director
– Cinematography / camera works
– Sound and background sounds
– Music and songs (for movies without songs I consider dress design instead)
– Advertisement and promotion
– Filmy ingredients – masala, glamour and viewers’ response
