Greatest Sri Lankan Films


The Top Ten

1 Cheriyo Darling

What an Incredible Cast!
Bandu Samarasinghe, Tennyson Cooray, Joe Abeywickrama, Wimal Kumara the Kosta, Ronnie Leitch, Freddie Silva, Dilhani Ashokamala Ekanayake, Ravindra Randeniya, Damith Fonseka, Baptist Fernando, Sumana Amarasinghe, Shammi Fernando, Nawanandana Wijesinghe, Shashikala Hettiarachchi & Sanoja Bibile!

Lame 3rd Class Movies like ABA, Uppalawanna, Saroja, Nidhanaya & Wekande Walauwa has no chance against the Greatness of a Genuine Masterpiece like Cheriyo Darling!

The Greatest Movie made in the History of Sri Lankan Cinema! Nothing else left to say but pure Magnificence!

Cheriyo Darling, the Movie Extraordinaire! I watched Cheriyo Darling for the 1st time in October 1996, just after its release & up-to-date I have watched it more than 200 times! I've watched it through VHS, then VCD, then DVD & now Blu-ray! I showed it to my Children, they showed it to my Grandchildren & they will show it to my Great-Grandchildren as well. Cheriyo Darling will never Die! Cheriyo Darling lives forever!

The world has never seen such a good movie! A huge huge Cheriyo Darling Fan here from Kahatagasdigiliya.

2 Raagaye Unusuma

If Cheriyo Darling was never made, this is undoubtedly the Best Film in Sri Lankan History. Sumana Gomas plays an Epic Lesbian Role in this film! I have never seen such talent in Sri Lanka before. She surely contributed to some of the best films ever shot. Raagaye Unusuma surely is among them along with Age vairaya series, Akkai nangi & Kamasutra.

3 Thani Thatuwen Piyabanna

It's SANNASGALA SIR's co-favourite film! The other one is Aksharaya. He showed us both films in class! WE LOVE IT!

4 Mata Thama Mathakai

It is indeed very rare to find all these best actresses to star in the same film. You will not get tired of all the Boobies you see in film. it is well acted and my favorite roles are played here by sapna roshini and thanuja weerasuriya. mohan is also doing a great job so does rex codippili and sandow harris. Mata Thama Mathakai surely gets my vote in this list of the greatest films in Sri Lanka - dorrick somasiri, kiribathgoda.

5 Mille Soya

Mille Soya should be the best. But Still I would rate Cheriyo Darling as the greatest, but still Mille Soya is good. Definitely better than Raigam Soya, Lanka Soya & Kimba Soya.

Vishvanath Buddhika Keerthisena or known lovingly as Boodee Keerthisena among us, made a 110 minute film in 2004 which is simply incredible, depicting a dangerous and hazardous journey by a young Sri Lankan group to rich Europe where they are subject to deceptions by the intermediaries, betrayals by friends, arrests while crossing the borders and even death. I guess this film should be at the number 2 spot behind Cheriyo Darling.

It s a good movie. like to watch & good comedies in have.

Like Kamal Addarachchi in this film


The WORST movie ever made in srilanka and not surprisingly by the idiot anton jacksani

It is a good movie. crowd comes to film halls again due to this film.

Aba is a movie which directed the film music industry into another dimension(like bambaru awith by Dr kemadasa) it has such a rich music that it fullfills allthe deficiencies in the film Nadeeka is a briliant guy

The Most horrible Movie I have ever seen! What a Joke! Sajitha Anthoney (Son of Jackson Anthoney) is not suitable for the role of King Pandukabhaya at all! He looks like an Ethopian who hasn't had food for a week! He should have played the role of Pandukabhaya servent or Pandukabhaya servent's servent maybe! It's ashamed that SL'n cinema has fallen into such tragedy... A sad Sinhala cinema admirer for 67 years here... :(

7 Aksharaya

Horrible Horrible Movie!

A 12 year old boy is caught watching porn with a friend at school. Then comes a Prostitute to the scene. The boy meets the National museum's security guard's daughter. Security guard raping the boy's mother who is a magistrate! The boy & the magistrate both get into a bathtub naked! The boy stabs his mother and she dies...

I don't know what's the mentality of Asoka Handagama? Movies like this is not suitable for our Buddhist country. I'm so ashamed to born in such a perverted country full of psycho's & lunatics!

I like to watch this.

It's SANNASGALA SIR's co-favourite film! The other one is Thani Thatuwen Piyabanna. He showed us both films in class! WE LOVE IT!

8 Saroja

Saroja, written and directed by Somaratne Dissanayake and now screening in cinemas across Sri Lanka, has been widely applauded by critics and the local mass media.

9 Igillena Maluwo

Gayesha 'the Vesi' Perera is the Best Actress ever acted in a Pichaaer in sirilanka! And that's it! Don't you ever doubt that!

The Contenders

11 Ganga Addara

I haven't watched the film but I have heard about the story from my mother. It sounds like a wonderful film. I really love the song. It's my favorite sinhala song! - ToukaKirishima

16 Bahuboothayo

Pabosha Sangipani (RASHI PABA) at her very best! Rodney Warnakula & Mahendra Silva also nominated for best Supporting Actors!

The 1st time I saw this on T.V. I was so thrilled and desperate to watch it again that I went to Pettah traveling 45 km in bus and purchased a Bahuboothayo CD for 50 Rupees!
