After listening to the collection of movies many new producers are attracted to invest in the production of new movies. If you are new to the film industry and planning to invest your hard work money in the production of a new movie then you should read this article in detail.


Who is Movie Producer?

Movie Producer can be a person or company that invest on the production of movie. They bear all the production, promotion and advertisement cost until full movie shot. Producers are the risk taker and who invest movie after looking at the script of the movie and casts and crews member. Sometime producers even look after the brand value of the movie name before investing. Producer bear the budget of the movie production. 


Who is Distributors?

Distributor is a person or company that buy movie to distribute among the cinema hall. They buy distribution right before or after the movie release by looking at the lead actors and actress and the team members working to make a movie. There is held contract between Distributor and Producer how much percentage of the movie to buy.


Who is Exhibitor?

The owner of theater or cinema hall are known as exhibitor. In Nepal exhibitor are One Cinema, Kumari Cinemas, Big Movies, Bishwojyoti movies, etc. They contract with the distributor of the movie to show in their cinema hall and pay certain percentage or amount to the distributor or sometime the distributor can be also producer of the movie. 


How much Tax should be paid to Government in Total Collection?

Any movies after the release date start to earn from the first day a certain amount is collected. In this total collection done by the movie, 13 percent vat amount and 5 percent tax to the local government becomes a total of 18 per cent to be paid to the government. The amount of collection remained after paying tax for both the distributor and movie producer to get 50/50 percent after tax.

Let's take an example of a movie with a lifetime collection of Rs. 20 crores gross amount at the box office. The remaining Rs. 16.4 Crores is distributed among the film producer and distributors. Let's assume that this movie successfully celebrated 51 days to becoming a blockbuster.

If a movie collected Rs. 10 crores in the 1st and 2nd week then it has to pay 18 percent of tax including 13 percent vat and 5 percent tax to the government then in this situation distributors get Rs. 4 Crores 10 Lakhs and Producers of the movie get Rs. 4 Crores 10 Lakhs. This shows both of them distribute 50-50 percent.

Note: The above amount should be collected by the movie within the 1st and 2nd week of the movie release date otherwise it becomes a different scenario.  

In short, 1st & 2nd Week Collection Distribution (Movie Profit Calculation)

  •     Total Collection = 10 Crores
    •         Vat % to be paid = 13 percent
    •         Tax % = 5 Percent
  •     Total Tax = 18 percent
  •     Remaining Total Collection = Rs. 8 Crores 20 Lakhs
  •     Percent Distribution = 50 /50 Percent
  •     Producer get in 1st & 2nd Week = Rs. 4 Crores 10 Lakhs
  •     Distributors get in 1st & 2nd Week = Rs. 4 Crores 10 Lakhs

The amount distributed after 2nd Week's Collection of the Movie

 Now, in the 3rd week, the scenario of the share percentage between distributors changed drastically. In the collection after 2nd-week distributors are on the top. After 3rd-week the producer gets only 35 percent of the total collection flat.

But this could decrease because some of the commission amounts are added to the distributor by the film producer to make them happy. This could be 5 percent to 15 percent share distributed to movie distributors.

If a movie earns Rs. 10 Crores at the box office in Nepal then more than Rs. 6 Crores should be paid to distributors in total and remains only Rs. 4 Crores with film producers.

It is very hard for movie producers to survive in the Nepal film industry because of the unjustifiable distribution of amounts among producers and movie distributors.  

In short, 3rd Week to lifetime Collection Distribution
  •     3rd Week onward Collection = 10 Crores
    •         Vat % to be paid = 13 percent
    •         Tax % = 5 Percent
  •     Total Tax = 18 percent
  •     Remaining Total Collection = Rs. 8 Crores 20 Lakhs
  •     Producer = 35 percent
  •     Distributors = 65 Percent plus 5 to 15 percent extra commission
  •     Producer get 3rd Week onward = Rs. 3 Crores Crores
  •     Distributors get in 1st & 2nd Week = Rs. 7 Crores


Movie Profit Calculation With Example

For Example, Kabaddi 4 collected more than Rs. 22 Crores and 83 Lakhs in 51 days. In this case, about 40 percent is given to the producers of the movie and 60 percent is distributed among the movie distributors. It becomes the amount received by the producer is Rs. 9 Crores 13 Lakhs approximate and the distributors get Rs. 13 Crores 70 Lakhs approximate.

The budget of the movie is more than 3 Crores which shows the producer is in profit of amount of Rs. 6 Crore 13 Lakhs. 


The above Calculation in this article shows that the producers of the movie are always not in the profit even if a movie is a hit at the box office because the production amount should be covered by the movie. If you like this article related Nepali movie collection
