Bandhu Mohanty (1977) is an Odia mythological film directed by Nitai Palit. Gopal Chotrai penned the dialogue of the film.[1][2][3][4][5]


Bandhu Mohanty is a devotee of God Jagganath. He lives with his wife and children and maintains his livelihood by begging. When there is a famine in the village, he comes to Puri with his wife and children. Soon, they can not find food anywhere. When his wife asks him to pray to end their starvation, Bandhu prays to god, who helps him. Jagganath listens to his devotee's prayers and asks Goddess Lakshmi to meet their needs.
