TN has mistaken Dam 999 for my do*****entary on Mullaperiyar: Sohan Roy

Director Sohan Roy tries to steer clear of all the controversy surrounding his latest release

Sohan Roy's Dam 999, which released in Kerala theatres on November 25, is still unleashing a flood of controversies. The movie has been hogging the limelight for its presumed link to the Mullaperiyar Dam issue between Kerala and Tamil Nadu and the latter state's ban on the release of the movie.


Now, Sohan says that the state's ban is probably because some of Tamil Nadu's political chiefs may have mistaken the film for being an existing do*****entary on Mullaperiyar that is titled The Lethal Water Bombs, which incidentally his team had shot earlier.

"They would have thought that the do*****entary would have been made into the film and that has probably caused this unfortunate ban," says Sohan. "Just give it a week or two and they will realize that the film is about something else altogether," he adds.

Though the director says that sentiments of the Tamilians are understandable, he claims that he can't comprehend as to how people can ban a movie even before watching it. ""I expected more support TN where the film industry and politics are closely tied.

"There were three screenings in Tamil Nadu and people who had seen Dam 999 saw that it is not even connected to the issue on hand. The problem is created by those who haven't watched the film," explains the director, adding that even most of the post-production crew was from TN and they were happy with the final product.

Sohan said although he has currently stalled his plans on approaching the Supreme Court to lift the ban, he would revisit his decision if the movie is not released in TN in about a week.

As for those who watched the film on the first day of its release, it was disappointment all the way. The audience walked in with high expectations only to realize that the collapse of the dam is just a minor part of the storyline.
