Following is a PTI report:

Rourkela, May 3 (PTI) Two decades after ‘Bhuka’ (Hunger), the second film in the Sambalpuri language ‘Ulugulan’ (revolution), is ready to release.

The 1989 ‘Bhuka’ (hunger) produced by Sabyasachi Mohapatra was the first Sambalpuri language film from the Orissa state to get an International Jury Award at the Gijon International Film Festival.

The new film, directed by Mahmood Hussain and produced by Purnabasi Sahu, is set in the first half of the 18th century and depicts the tyrannical rule of the Nagpur rulers.

The film revolves around Trupti Panda, who uses her ornaments to kill the governor sent by the Nagpur rulers after he makes advances to her.

“We have recreated the 18th century setting and have used fresh faces for our venture,” the producer said. “We will have to see how the audience receives the film.”

The film has been produced by Maa Mangala Movies.
