Odia movie ‘Patnagarh ’landed in controversy before its release

Bolangir:20/8/18:  Odia movie ‘Patnagarh’ -based on a real-life incident which claimed the lives of a newly-married man and his grandmother in Bolangir district has landed in controversy before its release.

Reportedly, Rabindra Sahu, father of the deceased man Soumya Sekhar, today filed a written complaint with Patnagarh police against the film makers.


In statement to the media, Rabindra said, “The incident was a great loss of my family and we are still suffering from the trauma. Filming of a movie based on the tragic incident has hurt our sentiments.”
