‘Daman,’ starring superstar Babushan, was released this Friday. The film has received a rousing reception throughout Odisha and is playing to packed houses in theatres and multiplexes in all major towns and cities.

 

The film, directed by Devi Prasad Lenka and Vishal Mourya, follows the efforts of a doctor stationed in a remote hamlet of Malkangiri district in providing healthcare and raising awareness about the dangers of superstitions.

 

Dipanwit Dashmohapatra is the second lead character in Daman, whose unique selling point is original content based on a true story that captivated the audience.

 

This film is a natural blockbuster, a long-awaited one for the Odia film industry, thanks to its concept, picturisation, direction, and top-notch acting.

 

According to Mourya, the film’s creators were looking for an unusual concept, not romantic or action, but something that people could relate to.

 

The filmmaking process was extremely difficult. We were concerned about whether the local audience and producers would accept the concept of this film. It was a game of chance, and anything could have happened. “But, at the end of the day,” Mourya said, “the response is soul satisfying.”

 

According to film critic Dilip Hali, films of this genre send a strong message to society about how people in rural areas resort to superstitious practises to cure deadly diseases.

 

“I believe such a film has never been produced in the Odia industry.” “Daman is an excellent film that should be shown almost everywhere because it will help people reject unscientific practises and embrace medical care,” Hali added.
