Comments[edit]

I have completely re-written the article in order to make it suited to Wikipedia's standards. However much work still needs to be done. More references and a map would be greatly appreciated.-Abdaal (talk) 09:27, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was Page moved to Mahanadi, hatnote placed on both Mahanadi and Mahanadi (film). Disambiguation page not created as there seem to be only two entries there. Hatnotes are preferred instead (WP:TWODABS. Lynch7 08:31, 12 February 2012 (UTC)


– The river is a permanent feature. The movie can mentioned as hatnote, instead of a full diambiguation page. ChiragPatnaik (talk) 15:20, 2 February 2012 (UTC) - Also, the "nadi" in Mahanadi means river in Hindi and several other Indian languages. So it seems a little incongrouous.

  • Support. In addition to the nominator's rationale, Google Book Search gives 20,700 hits for "Mahanadi River" and 182,000 for Mahanadi −film, indicating that the river is very often referred to without the redundancy. Per WP:TWODABS, the dab page should just be deleted and replaced with at hatnote. Favonian (talk) 12:56, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Support: The river is definitely a primary topic as the film's name was derived from the river. Straightforward. X.One SOS 13:26, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
