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

Warning for the coming Disaaster
7 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

DAM999 expresses various emotions of love. The film revolves around nine characters and their emotions which revolve around the central edifice of a dam. Movie makes aware of the coming disaster. Most attractive feature in the movie is how it portrays the traditional treatment of Ayurveda. I like all the songs in the movie. Technically film is good. More than that, director grabbed the attention of entire audience as at least someone came forward to make aware of the endanger gyrated with the aged old dam. I felt this movie is giving warning to the lacs of lives in Kerala. At least all the keralites must watch this movie……... Other than degrading such movies we must unite and come forward for a social cause………….
