Oriya Cinema: An Era Ends

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

After keeping cancer defeated for a long period, the epoch making villain of Orissa Cinema, whose personal life was magnificent with nobility, shifted into his domain where no disease can ever reach him, as he breathed his last this noon in a Bhubaneswar based cancer hospital.

Hara Patnaik, spellbinding actor in 36 films, had directed 19 box-office milestones in Oriya celluloid world.

It requires extremely unfailing personal discipline to act a villain in films. He was an acclaimed epitome. With his demise, an era ends in Oriya Cinema.

We dedicate the day to his memories that would stay alive for ever.
