Movie Dam 999: depicts collapse of Mullaiperiyar Dam

MDMK, PMK demand ban on release of 'Dam 999'

Chennai, Nov 22 (PTI): Two political parties in Tamil Nadu MDMK and PMK today demanded a ban on the release of Hollywood film 'Dam 999' in the country, saying it depicts the scenario of the collapse of century-old Mullaiperiyar Dam over which the state is locked in a row with Kerala. 

MDMK leader Vaiko, in a statement, said the film, financed by Keralites, starring Indian and Hollywood actors and directed by Sohan Roy has been named 'Dam 999' referring to the legal rights held by Tamil Nadu over the Mullaiperiyar dam for 999 years. Vaiko said he has appealed to the South Indian Film Chambers, Tamil Film Producers Council and the South Indian Artistes Association not to allow the screening of the film in Tamil Nadu. If cinema houses in the state screen the film, his party would organise demonstrations against it, he said. 

PMK founder Dr S Ramadoss said the film was screened before the Supreme Court appointed expert committee, headed by retired judge Justice A S Anand, to back Kerala's claim that the reservoir was unsafe and needs to be replaced. He urged Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa to take up the matter with the Centre. The dam, located in the Iddukki district of Kerala, is under the control of Tamil Nadu Government and meets the irrigation needs of farmers in southern districts bordering Kerala. While Kerala had proposed construction of a new dam to replace the old structure saying it posed a danager to the people living downstream, Tamil Nadu has been opposing the move.
