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

A mustwatch
2 December 2011 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

watched the movie yesterday. 100% occupancy and that too on a Thursday morning. The expectations went high. The movie can be categorized as a drama with doses of disaster and tensed situations adding the flavor. The movie starts on a slow start and by the time of the interval it picks up the pace and the end 20 minutes were the real treat. The 3D added depth to the visuals and dam disaster scenes were crafted with great GFX supported by nice BGS. The story holds it uniqueness and freshness and the craftsmanship of the director is commanding. Locales were beautiful and captured nicely by the cinematographer. Songs were a mixture traditional, western and desi beats and the duet song stand apart. To summarize, the movie is worth a watch and a must-watch for all south Indian states.
