Mahurat of oriya film Dharma took place at Panchamukhi Hanuman temple in Cuttack on 4th June. This movie stars Akash Das Nayak and Riya Dey in main lead. Actors Raimohan, Pintu Nanda and Ipsita Mohanty will play pivotal roles in the film. The music, according to composer Deepak Kumar, will be a blend of Sambalpuri folk and Western beats.
According to Dilip Panda, director of the cinema, “The movie is a revenge saga and the story is based in rural Odisha. Apart from a strong Odia flavour, the audience can expect quite a few nerve-wrecking action sequences. I have designed these sequences with sticks that are used in Odia folk dance — Paika. I hope this will be a refreshing visual experience for the audience of Odia movies.”
