No Sign Of Relief For This UAE Director  Ban On The Hollywood Movie DAM999 Extended Again By The Tamil Nadu Government

The Tamil Nadu government has again banned the Mullaperiyar dam controversy film ‘Dam 999’. Nine years ago, the film was banned in Tamil Nadu since its release. Even though the Supreme Court has given permission to screen the movie, the Tamil Nadu government alone has not given permission to screen the film. When the ban expired yesterday, the government renewed the order.

Tamil Nadu continues to ban the film, claiming that the story of the film, which was released in 2011, is similar to the Mullaperiyar Dam. Dam 999 is a film about an old, dilapidated Dam and the tragedy that occurs when it collapses. With that, Tamil Nadu went ahead with measures including obstruction of the Indian Parliament. The film was subjected to brutal actions, including refusing to post posters, imposing fines on theaters that came forward to show it, influencing channels not to take satellite rights, and breaking IMDb ratings by cyber fighters.

  

Dam 999, directed by Dr. Sohan Roy, has since won numerous international awards. The film made it to the Oscar shortlist with five entries in three categories and qualified for next year’s Golden Rooster Award in twelve categories. Dam 999 is also the first Indian film to be eligible for the Chinese Oscar. The screenplay for the film, written and directed by himself, was also selected for the ‘Permanent Core Collection’ in the Oscar Academy Library. In the following years, Dam 999 was selected for over 130 international film festivals.

Kerala-Based Aries Group & Allabout Innovations launches revolutionary foolproof protection for Cinema audiences

Kerala-Based Aries Group & Allabout Innovations launches revolutionary foolproof protection for Cinema audiences

We live in a world where diseases caused by Bacteria and Viruses are found quite often. And COVID 19 is just one among many such viruses which has become a global health concern today. It has profoundly impacting human capital and businesses, including lives, learning, essential well-being, and future productivity. But the sectors which have incurred massive losses during these difficult times are cinema theatres.

The last few years have seen a digital shift of audience to OTT platforms. To ward off this competition and to woo the audience back to their properties, most Cinema owners had made significant all-round investments to enhance the cinema viewing experience.They included significant big-ticket investments in cinema interiors, screens, acoustics, projections, etc.

Cinema exhibition industry remains one of the few industries, yet to get a nod to function, and hence most cinema owners are under tremendous pressure. This is where Kerala-Based Aries Group has partnered with technology fostering firm, Allabout Innovations to launch cinema specific Corona protection system, that can protect us from all kinds of bacteria and viruses.

Dr. Sohan Roy, the Founder, and CEO of Aries Group of Companies, Aries Vismayas Max Studio, and Aries Plex, stated that this innovation will definitely prove to be a cost-effective solution for theatre owners to save their business. With this technology in place, we are sure to bring back the cinema industry right back on track, providing our viewers with a safe environment to enjoy cinema the way they used to.

AI has manufactured, made in India, WOLF brand Ozone generators, as well as Ion thrusters, which will sanitize thoroughly the areas where it operates. While the Ozone generators are meant for enclosures like studios and rooms, the AirMask ion thrusters come as a perfect solution for big cinema halls.

Speaking about the ion thrusters, which is named AirMask, Sujesh Sugunan, CEO of Kochi Based All About Innovations, said, “it can discharge up to 25 million negative ions per cm3, which will bind with the positive ions of COVID 19 and any other harmful viruses present in the air and neutralize it. Wolf Air Mask, when placed in a theatre, will ensure that the air inside the hall is neutralized by killing the harmful bacteria and viruses within fractions of a second. ,”

In India, there are only around 2,400 multiplex screens and approximately 6,700 single-screen theatres for 2,000 odd movies that release every year in our country. This year it was predicted that the Indian cinema industry will grow at a 6% CAGR between 2017 and 2020, reaching USD 1.9bn to USD 2.0 bn. But unfortunately, due to COVID, the theatres have suffered extreme losses, taking the cinema industry to an all-time low. Theatres have now been shut for more than 6 months, making the survival of the owners extremely difficult. Movie releases have been halted, and no proper plan is still in place to restart the functioning of cinema halls again. Shutting down theatres for an extended period will cause damage to the costly equipment installed, leading to further financial losses to the owners. Finding investments during such critical times has also become a cause of concern for many Single screen owners as well.

 

Aries Group shall take up the marketing of this revolutionary product in the cinema industry. Air Mask is specially designed to be placed inside a cinema hall, where a lot of aspects like consideration to lighting, acoustics, and noise have to be taken care of. 1000 nos of the equipment shall be launched in the first phase of its launch in the market. Allabout Innovations is a social design and innovation firm and consists of engineers, doctors, scientists, and social entrepreneurs.

Aries Group CEO Dr Sohan Roy Comes Forward In Support Of The UAE To Promote Gender Equality Resolution In The Marine Sector

Aries Group CEO Dr Sohan Roy Comes Forward In Support Of The UAE To Promote Gender Equality Resolution In The Marine Sector

UAE had come up with a request to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for making maritime fraternity a field where gender equity is maintained. This move is to ensure that women also get equal work opportunities as men in the industry. The IMO passed IMO resolution on “Preserving the legacy of the World Maritime theme for 2019 and Achieving a Barrier-Free Working Environment for Women in the Maritime Sector.”

The decision strives towards achieving the fifth goal of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030. UAE based Aries Group of Companies CEO, Dr. Sohan Roy, welcomed the resolution and assured his full support. He commented that the gender imbalance seen in the marine world today is mainly due to the lack of unawareness of women’s opportunities available in the field. He has always pitched in for treating women in his organization equally. “As far as I know, the industry is willing to absorb females, but very few come forward to accept it. If a certain percentage of slots are optionally reserved for females, it will definitely create awareness about the opportunities. Personally speaking, we provide equal status to all female employees in our organization. I have twin daughters, and both are Naval Architects.

They never faced any kind of difficulty in getting absorbed by the Maritime Industry. In fact, the one working in the UK and was the first to get selected through campus interview.” mentioned Dr. Roy. He also added that it is the outlook of the people towards the maritime sector that really needs a change.
