Best Nepali Movie 2017

Best Nepali Movie 2017 : Howdy! Good morning. We Welcome you to our blog. So are you looking for to Watch the Best Nepali Movie 2017 ? if yes then you landed in the right place.

History of Nepali Movie

The making of first Nepali movie dates back to 1951 AD, with the title Satya Harischandra which was released on September 14, 1951. Rather than a Nepal produced movie, it was more of a first Nepali-language movie ever shot. It was produced from Kolkata, India. So, ‘Aama’ makes it to being the first movie that was ever produced and released in Nepal , on October 7, 1964. It was produced by the Information Department of His Majesty’s Government of Nepal(now Government of Nepal), directed by Hira Singh Khatri. The lead actors in ‘Aama’ Shanker Manandhar and Bhuwan Chand are therefore, regarded as the first actors in the film industry Nepal.

The development in film industry in the country was taking turtle’s pace, maybe because the industry was new and most people (potential investors) could not make the risk and returns associated with the industry, or maybe because the industry was not  regarded lucrative or maybe because the industry lacked its creative operators (e.g.:  actors, directors, choreographers, etc) along with other infrastructures that are essentials of movie making, like equipments, knowledge etc.. Whatever may the reason be, for the industry’s slow development, the industry was always going through different hurdles but was still up and running along with its (even though slow) sign of development.

Development of the Nepali Movie industry

With increase in development of the industry and its fundamental infrastructures, private banners slowly started to enter the industry. The first Nepali movie ever to be produced under private banner was ‘Maitighar’, which was released at the end of 1966 by Sumonanjali Films Pvt. Ltd. Receiving helping hands and contributions from Indians for the making, it was the first fully pledged Nepali film. The lead actors were Mala Singh and C.P. Lohani. The veteran music maestro Jaidev gave music for the film, while Lata Mangeshkar sang a Nepali song for the first time and that too in the film ‘Maitighar’, the song was penned by the late king Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev. Other Indian singers who lend their voice in the film were Asha Bhosla, Usla Mangeshkar and Manna Dey. The film also had friendly appearances of Sunil Dutta and Comedian Rajendra Nath. So, to sum it up, we can say that the first movie of Nepal was produced under private banner was largely supported by the Indian counterparts.

The golden era, when film making was seen as little more viable profession, started after 1980s. There was increase in the number of films produced, ald also with  the introduction of private companies in film making industry of Nepal, the era stood still, where more films were being produced. Some successful movies of the era are Lahure, Saino, Koseli, Kusume Rumal released between 1984 to 1993. However the industry was soon hit hard with the consequences of the Maoist revolution.


Present Scenario of Nepali Movie

Now, with the end of conflict era and the introduction of rapid development in the industry and its distribution networks the industry has been able to see significant improvement in the quality of films produced. However, if we are to compare Nepali movies with those of Bollywood or Hollywood, we sure do lag largely behind, and the competition in preference of Nepali films over those made in Hollywood or Bollywood is stiff as youths(or maximum audience of the film industry in Nepal) prefer Bollywood or Hollywood over them. But for a positive note, along with the development, the trend of Nepali movies having same storyline as of Bollywood films are slowly becoming a thing of the past.

In the present context, Nepali movie industry can be considered as one very lucrative industry, as we can see the massive success some of the new movies have been able to achieve in the local industry. While there existed the days when it would take more than months to even break-even, the releases now(new movies) are able to make substantial profits even after just a few weeks or sometimes even just days of their release. The change in status of Nepali cinema can also be traced back to the release of blockbuster hit ‘Loot’, which was directed by Nischal Basnet and was released in 2012, this movie earned 25.5 million rupees.

These successful nepali movies, along with some others not mentioned above, can be considered as the game changers of the Nepalese movie Industry. Nepali movies also have started to increase their presence in International film festivals as well, which in itself is an achievement of the industry.

Though the film industry in Nepal seem to be climbing up the ladder to success, different problems still exists and are contributing to slow down the process of the industry towards success. The trend of preference over quantity over quality by the producers has not helped in creation of quality movies. Since the research and studies are also not done adequately, most of the films produced add up to the list of flop movies. Out of all the movies released in Nepali market, in a year, only 10% of them are recorded to perform well in box-office and also earn good returns. While the remaining 90 % cannot even break-even most of the time and 50% among them are recorded as not being able to even raise their promotional costs. According to the critics, these problems exists as a result of lack of creativity, art and originality in the making of Nepali movies. The lack of these fundamentals can also be seen as a result of producers approaching movie making being based on traditional ways, copying from bollywood, focusing on quantity over quality, lack of budget and etc. The major problem that exists in our local film industry is the habit of movie makers to catch the trend of hit movie and making similar movies rather than focusing on what’s the requirement, what’s new and what are the wants of the audiences.

Despite the history and various obstacles, Nepali film industry has been able to show positive signs of development and its future. Due to different factors and events, like advancement in technologies, talent, theoretical and trained actors, quality of acting, storyline etc and also due to the development of cinema halls and their quality, quantity, cinematography, among various other reasons, have been the major factors that have improved the trends of movie watching among Nepali audiences and have gradually been able to create attraction for them towards Nepali movie.
