Week 3 Victory: ‘Dimag Kharaab’ Earns 7 Cr. Gross

Nepali film director Nischal Basnet has struck gold at the domestic box office with his latest creation, “Dimag Kharaab,” despite facing tough competition from the Bollywood blockbuster ‘Tiger 3.’ The film, which hit theaters on October 24, has garnered significant attention and proven to be a strong contender in the domestic film industry.

“Dimag Kharaab,” produced by Cinema Arts, has managed to secure a robust grip on the homegrown box office, even with the ongoing screening of ‘Tiger 3.’ The film’s opening, though facing initial challenges, has steadily gained momentum over the past three weeks.

The official collection report for the first two weeks of the film’s release boasts an impressive 7 crore rupees in earnings. Despite challenges in obtaining accurate box office reports from the Film Development Board since July, the producers maintain that the film has performed exceptionally well.

Entering its third week of release, “Dimag Kharaab” continues to secure prominent show slots in multiplexes, surpassing the expectations set by the much-anticipated ‘Tiger 3.’ The film’s popularity is evident not only in the number of screenings but also in its high occupancy rates.

With a production cost of over 4 crores, the film’s financial success is evident, with an expected business of around 8 crores. The movie has been labeled a “semi-hit,” signaling its successful run in cinemas and attracting audiences with a cast featuring Keshav Bhattarai, Dayahang Rai, Swastima Khadka, Arpan Thapa, and others.

“Dimag Kharaab” showcases the directorial finesse of Nischal Basnet, while actors like Khagendra Lamichhane, Bijay Baral, and others contribute to the film’s overall appeal. The executive production team, led by Rounak Bikram Kadel and executive producer Suraj Bam Thakuri, has undoubtedly played a pivotal role in the film’s success.

As the film continues to draw audiences and receive positive reviews, “Dimag Kharaab” stands as a testament to the resilience and creativity of the Nepali film industry, proving that local productions can compete and thrive even in the face of formidable international competition.
