Odia film DAMaN to be screened at district, sub divisional level: CS

Bhubaneswar, Nov 24(UNI) Considering the motivational messages and popularity of Odia film DAMaN, the Odisha government has decided to screen the film at district and sub-divisional levels.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had already declared the film tax free in the state
Official sources here on Thursday said detailed instructions to Collectors of all districts have been issued from the department of Health and Family Welfare department.

The State Government under the directions of the Chief Minister had launched Durgamma Achalare Malaria Nirakarana ( DAMaN) in the year 2016 specially targeting 8000 villages in 8 malaria prone districts of the State.
The coordinated and dedicated efforts of the doctors and officials at ground level inscribed remarkable success in eradication of malaria.
However, the process of implementation was not very easy. It was blurred by blind faith, social stigma, and lack of connectivity in remote areas surrounded by hills, forest and rivers.
The dedicated doctors and officers from the concerned department had to toil hard for convincing
the people, and mobilizing them to accept the scientifically proven health habits.
Taking this ground reality as the theme, Script Writer Debi Prasad Lenka Producer, Deepandra Samal, Director Vishal Mourya and Debi Prasad Lenka took the venture to shoot an Odia film
which was released this month.
The film, prepared in its natural setting, acquired quick popularity and wide appreciation from cross sections of society.
The film was also screened in Lokseba Bhawan conference hall last Sunday which was witnessed by senior officers of the State Government including Chief Secretary Suresh Chandra Mahapatra who had recommended the film to be shown at different levels.
