The story revolves around the central edifice in this movie, a 100 year old Dam built by British during their colonial days in India . Like a Dam, each character in this movie, holds back their emotions for various reasons, eventually the DAM breaks along with that of its characters drawing the audience to gripping climax. The numerical 999 has got great importance in British Colonial Indian historical pages. The story reveals the concealed truth of India's age old myths and science. Written by Sohan Roy

Dams become curious idioms of love, in Sohan Roy's DAM999. Just like a 100 year old dam, ineffective and feeble in holding the water and its pressure, the main protagonists of the movie -Vinay and Meera, turn unsuccessful in holding back their 'forbidden' love for each other. The fates of both are parallel and predictable- disaster. The dam breaks, bringing with it massive damage to lives and harmony. So does love, once exposed and let out, especially when it is barred and forbidden. Here lies the basic analogy and philosophy that the movie admits- Dams happen to be concrete representations of love, burdened with unrestrained fluids. Vinay, at one point in the movie talks about how he and Meera are like dams themselves – taking the pressure of emotions for others. Dam999 is essentially a beautiful love story, told in the backdrop of water, akin to its precursors, including 'Titanic'.
