Theatre owners in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday decided not to screen controversial movie 'Dam 999', saying it was against the interests of the state, after political parties, including DMK, raised the pitch against its release.

The decision came as the film generated considerable heat in political circles, with DMK, MDMK and PMK calling for its ban, contending that it was based on the Mullaperiyar dam, over which Tamil Nadu and Kerala have a long standing dispute.

"The film justifies breaking of the (Mullaperiyar) dam (since the plot revolves around the collapse of a dam). It is against interests of Tamil Nadu. We have decided not to screen the film to express our concerns," Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners' Association general secretary R Panneerselvam told PTI.
