The Cinema Times, Kathmandu – Director Nischal Basnet has taken the captaincy after six years with ‘Dimaag Kharaab’, that’s one reason why the audiences have high hopes for the cinema. Basnet had raised the bar with his debut directorial ‘Loot’ which paved a new pathway for Nepali cinemas. What new does this upcoming cinema has in store for the audiences!
As far as the trailer portrays, the story is based on how the system affects those who are not that concerned about the system. A naïve citizen whose only dream is to feed his family and add a roof on their head is kicked under the belt by the system and what his reaction would be is presented in the cinema.
When asked if ‘Dimaag Kharaab’ is a political cinema, director Basnet replies- ‘It is not. The cinema is solely a common man’s perspective. A common man’s struggle, his thoughts, dreams, hopes and his individual ideologies which are directly or indirectly deeply affected by the system and political scenarios of the country is presented in the cinema.’
He further adds, ‘A simple individual prioritizes his family and outside the family is the society and above it all is the system. Politics is rooted within whatever an individual does. What an individual expects from the system, what he feels is presented as an individual statement in the cinema.’ He feels the character portrayed will be relatable to the audiences.
