Odia Film DAMaN Sees Hindi Release Pan India on Friday


Panorama Studios on Friday released the Odia language original film DAMaN. The movie which tracks Dr Siddharth Mohanty’s journey to eradicate malaria, is running successfully in Odisha where it released on November 4, 2022.

Kumar Mangat Pathak, Chairman, Panorama Studios, who has produced the film with Deependra Samal of JP Motion Pictures, says, “We have always backed issue-based content. DAMaN talks about an important campaign in an entertaining way. The film needs to be supported and exhibited widely to create awareness given that in 2015, at the East Asia Summit, India pledged to eliminate malaria by 2030.”

DAMaN is an acronym for Durgama Anchalare Malaria Nirakarana (malaria control in inaccessible areas), which has benefited around 8,000 villages in Odisha. “We’re delighted that Panorama Studios came on board and couldn’t have asked for a better partner for such an important venture,” shares Deependra Samal from JP Motion Pictures, who produced the Odia version of DAMaN.

leading man of the film, ollywood actor Babushaan Mohanty says, “As an actor, one always wants people everywhere to watch your film. I am glad that a film that has given us so much love will travel far and wide because of its release in Hindi now. It’s an important story that should reach as many people as possible.” Directed by young duo of Vishal Mourya and Debi Prasad Lenka, DAMaN also stars Dipanwit Das Mohapatra and members of local tribal communities of Malkangiri & Koraput who have acted in a film for the first time.
