Panorama Studios and JP Motion Pictures will release 'Daman', an Odia social drama, in Hindi in theatres across India on February 3.
Written and directed by Vishal Mourya and Debi Prasad Lenka, the film opened in Odisha last year, on November 4, was declared tax-free and is still running successfully.
'Daman' based on a true incident traces the journey of Dr Siddharth Mohanty, played by Babushaan Mohanty, who has just completed his MBBS from a government college in Bhubaneswar, is posted in a remote tribal area in the state's Malkangiri district. How he spearheads a drive to eradicate malaria in the 151 villages in Janbai PHC in spite of many hurdles, forms a moving tale of the film.
"Our film is a true-life story appreciated not only by the common man, but also Odisha's Chief Minister, Naveen Patnaik, who believes it will inspire doctors and government officials in remote areas across the country to work selflessly and give an impetus to many such initiatives. Now Ajay sir supporting this small film with a big heart is really a sweet gesture," said Debi Prasad Lenka and Vishal Mourya.
An acronym for Durgama Anchalare Malaria Nirakarana (Malaria Control in Inaccessible Areas), the drive has produced impressive results in 8,000 villages of 79 blocks of eight highly malaria-endemic southern Odisha districts in a short span.
