Storyline

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

Quite different, I liked it
1 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

After reading through the website, I found the movie to be rather interesting. On screen the audience gets to see the life of 9 characters entangled in 9 scenarios which ends up with a disaster. The dam disaster has come out really well, lets keep in mind this is not a high end disaster movie similar to that of 2012 but it conveys its purpose. The director has put in a lot of effort to share about India which is still not very sound among the international audience. The soundtracks were quite colorful in multiple languages. A family entertainer and a awareness spreading effort by the director and the national award winners in it.Overall the movie was a nice experience, worth watching once preferably in 2D as 3D is needed only towards the dam collapse sequence which comes in the second half.
