'DAM999' bags two honorary GMA awards
DAM999, a controversial movie released last year, has bagged two honorary awards at the Global Music Awards (GMA) held in California. GMA has bestowed the Award of Excellence for the movie's soundtrack and Award of Merit for original score to the film, directed by Sohan Roy.

Sohan Roy's "DAM 999", a $10 million film, tells the tale of a cracking dam built during colonial rule and nine people whose lives revolve around the the pressure-mounted dam.

Kerala-born marine engineer-turned-film director, Roy's movie was last year selected for the 2011 Oscar race in three categories - original song, original score and best picture, but failed to secure a place in the final nomination list.

The GMA honours talented musicians from around the world.

Note from the Global Music Awards
Award of Excellence honors go to Sohan Roy of BizTV Network of Edapally, Cochin, India for the motion picture sound track of Dam 999. The movie is based on real life incidents of the 1975 Banqiao Dam disaster in China which took an estimated 250,000 lives. Apart from his passion for cinema, Sohan Roy is also an eminent business figure and the CEO of Aries Group of Companies. Dam 999 is being distributed by Warner Brothers in India. The GMA also grants its Award of Merit for original score to Sohan Roy. The film's songs Dakkanaga Dugu Dugu, Dam 999 theme song, and Mujhe Chod Ke were on the 2012 Academy Award's long list. The songs are penned by director Sohan Roy and are composed by Indian music director Ousephachan, a well-known name in Malayalam Cinema. Ousephachanbn has also given music in Bollywood films like Aakrosh and Khatta Meetha. He won a national award for the Malayalam film Ore Kadal
