Vishal Mourya and Debi Prasad Lenka wrote and directed the film, which premiered in Odisha last November 4, was deemed tax-free and is still running well.
Daman is based on a true story and follows Dr. Siddharth Mohanty, played by Odia actor Babushaan Mohanty, who has just finished his MBBS from Bhubaneswar and is assigned to a distant tribal area in the state’s Malkangiri district.
Despite numerous obstacles, he spearheads a mission to eradicate malaria in the 151 villages of Janbai PHC in the tribal-dominated Malkangiri district.
“Our video is a true-life story that has been praised not only by the general public but also by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, who believes it would motivate doctors and government officials in distant places across the country to work selflessly and provide fuel to many similar initiatives. Now, Ajay sir’s generous support for this modest film is quite heartwarming “Vishal Mourya stated.
The effort, which is an acronym for Durgama Anchalare Malaria Nirakarana (Malaria Control in Inaccessible Areas), has yielded outstanding results in 8,000 villages over 79 blocks in eight severely malaria-endemic districts in southern Odisha in a short period of time.
According to the World Health Organization’s 2018 World Malaria Report, India is the only country among the 11 highest-burden countries that has made significant progress in reducing disease burden. India vowed to eliminate malaria by 2030 at the East Asia Summit in 2015.
“It is critical to support inspirational stories like Daman in order to help a national cause. Covid-19 reaffirmed the age-old adage that “health is wealth,” and that we should all do our part to rid our society of sickness. These kinds of films are desperately needed “Kumar Mangat Pathak, chairman of Panorama Studios, who produced the film with Deependra Samal of JP Motion Pictures, believes so.
Daman, produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak, and Deependra Samal, and co-produced by Murlidhar Chhatwani and Pinki Pradhan, also stars Dipanwit Das Mohapatra and numerous tribal performers who are appearing in films for the first time.
