Top 10 Sri Lankan Films

Top 10 Sri Lankan Films (1947-1997) Technically, the first film produced in Sri Lanka dates back to 1925, which was a silent film called “Rajakeeya Wickremeya” (Royal Adventure). But, unfortunately, the film reels got burnt before it was shown in Sri Lanka. Now the film is lost forever. After several silent films, in 1947 the first sound film was produced in Sri Lanka called “Kadawunu Poronduwa” (Broken Promises). 50 years later, in 1997, a government committee in Sri Lanka compiled a list of the best 10 films of the first 50 years of Sri Lankan cinema.
