One of the best movie ever made in Nepal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
18 October 2012 | by namastenepSee all my reviews

Dakshina is a movie that revolves around the story of a life of philosophical teacher who always preaches his students to be a good person in life.

The movie is beautifully crafted in all aspects (direction,story screenplay, acting etc ). Tulsi Ghimire has also acted in the movie.He has performed brilliantly. Bhuwan KC, Niruta Singh, Satyajit Gajamer and the new actor Pukar Gurung has acted superbly.

This is one of the best movie made in the history of Nepal. Tulsi Ghimire has directed other movies such as Kusume Rumal, Samjhana, Chino, Koseli, Lahure, Darpan Chaaya etc. His movies are brilliant in all respect and especially make movies that promote sovereignty, dignity, unity of Nepal.
