DAM999 is a tribute to the lost souls of the world’s worst man made dam
disasters which claimed a toll of lives. Around 250,000 people died in 1975
Banqiao dam disaster in China. The collapse of this dam did not make it to the
world for over 15 years. It was worse than what happened at Hiroshima and
Nagasaki. DAM999 spreads the message about the consequences of an unfortunate
disaster which is predicted in the near future. Dam999, a fact worth waiting
Suspense in the movie titles it as a thriller. DAM999 portrays the realities of
life, some shared and some unshared. Navarasa or 9 human emotions are shown by

The foundation of astrology, considered as the pillars of influence on human
beings. According to Hindu customs, the Navagraha are typically placed in a
single square with the Sun (Surya) in the center and the other deities surrounding
Surya. It is a mystical arrangement with lot of facts in it. The secrets of
this unknown science will be revealed to the world through DAM999.
Navarasa is the essence of Dam999. It is the idea steering its story and the
nine lead characters in it. Dam999 brings into play the long standing concept
of Navarasa but in a way that is exceptionally original. The individuality of
the characters is the element that each character is the personification of one
rasa. Their nature, the intensity of their reactions, their strengths, their
failings – all guided by the rasa they represent, which in turn shape the story
of Dam999. This very factor makes the movie the only one of its kind ever made.
Life in the sea has always created a lot of inquisitiveness for a layman to
know more about a mariners life and the marine world. ‘DAM999’ is an answer to
all the questions which entices an individual who has never been to the sea.
Vast Oceans conceal within them endless tales, some told and few untold. There
are various moments of amazement, adventure and agony which are solely shared
by a mariner who confronts the sea. ‘DAM999’ is an initiative to replicate
these reflections on screen and portray it to the world.
Music has always been considered as the rhythm of life. DAM999 will give the
audience a feel of the 9 character with 9 assorted tunes. The concept of a
musical movie will be redefined by DAM999.
A culture rich country like India requires more than words, the reels of the
movie will speak for the forgotten shades of India. The script of DAM999 makes
sure that the rich heritage of the country doesn’t go unnoticed.
