Kochi, June 4 (IANS) 'Dam 999', a tribute to the victims of the 1975 Banqiao dam disaster in China, is getting closer for release as its shooting has been completed.

'The first print will be ready by Oct 1 and by the first week of November, it will go for the Oscar bidding. It will be released in December,' Roy said.

The film is produced by Middle East-based Marine BizTV and directed by Roy, CEO of Aries Telecasting Limited, the parent company of Marine BizTV in Dubai.

Roy, a naval architect by profession, said: 'The film is a classic emotional thriller and is an attempt to highlight the unseen beauty of the maritime world in the backdrop of the rich Indian culture.'

'Dam 999' intends to imprint the Vedic concept of Navarasas and Navagrahas along with the magical curing power of Ayurveda in its characters and situations. It speaks about a colonial dam, its disaster, the nine characters and their emotions,' he said.
