A good example of Nepalese movie history
1 December 2011 | by (Kathmandu, Nepal) – See all my reviews

Kagbeni is one of the highly appreciated movie ever made in Nepalese movie history. Inspired by the short story The Monkey's Paw, the movie also tries to show the lifestyle of the people living in the mountains of Nepal. The mesmerizing sceneries from the Himalayas is the best part of the movie. Ramesh in a will of getting his beloved, make a wish to the Monkey's paw given by a pilgrim which he is not supposed to do, faces the sequence of disasters in his life. The movie ends with a good moral that when we desire more for self benefit then that may lead to equivalent loss. It someway implies the saying 'to gain something, we must lose something'.
