To make it easier for our viewers, I have collected all the sequels of the one of the most popular Nepali movie franchise, ‘Nai Nabhannu La’. Although the initial response was lukewarm, the movie piked up in later days.
The first sequel of ‘Nai Nabhannu La’ was released in August of 2010. One of the movie theatres, Hira Ratna, had removed the movie on the second day of it’s release because of low turn out of the viewers (read my report of 2010 – Did viewers say “Nai” to “Nai Na Bhannu La” the next day?). But, the musical love story movie turned out to be a blockbuster movie and did a good business in the theaters inside and outside of Kathmandu valley (Read the Year end report of the movies in 2010). Let me compare the four sequels of the movie in a tabular form:
Although I have all of these movies in separate post, I am compiling them all in one place so that you can enjoy them at the same time. Please comment which one do you like the most and why.

When – August 2016
As we bid farewell to 2015 and welcome 2016, I am going to look back into last year and evaluate the most popular movies in the year. There were less number of viewers when compared to previous years. We lost a lot of visitors after the earthquake on April 25.The following ranking is obtained from 60 lakh pageviews xnepali received in 2015.
The top 10 movies by viewers count in xnepali website (in reverse order) are:
The movie by Ram Babu Gurung featuring Dayahang Rai, Nischal Basnet was the superhit movie of 2014. I am surprised it falls in 10th place. I had expected it to be somewhere higher. (Watch ‘Kabaddi’ here)
‘Tandav’ nearly knocked ‘Kabaddi’ out of this list. (Watch ‘Tandav’ here)
The movie featuring Anmol KC with his girlfriend Anna Sharma was liked by the youths. The movie became very successful and had established Anmol KC as a horse of a long race. (Watch ‘Jerry’ here)
