kagbeni.....a exceptional thiller and drama
11 September 2018 | by raizelslashSee all my reviews

This movie is a gem. A very different movie for a Nepali audience.I think this is the first digital movie made in Nepal. The acting, the story line are fit perfectly. The length of the movie is also good as we wont get bored with useless scenes. This movie is a must watch for Nepali audience. this movie is a different approach as its story not a typical action or romance movie.
