All the images in the gallery have been made stereoscopic to share the feel of the actual movie. The website would provide numerous video downloads, wallpapers and screen-savers in both 2D and 3D format. The 3D website has been created by the in house software team of BizTV network.
Director Sohan Roy began the project DAM999 in 2007. The movie is a message to the world about the overlooked dangers of outdated dams; the realities of the marine world; the tradition, culture and forgotten medical cures of the Indian history; the pain and pleasure of being in love and the nine hidden but living emotions of a man.
