He directed his first film Bhukha in Kosali Language that won International Jury award at Gijon Film festival. Later he directed and produced couple of movies. His movie Jai Jagannatha, a mythological film, was a mega-budget released in fifteen different Indian languages.After 25 years, director Sabyasachi Mohapatra is back with Salabudha, another movie set on a rural background in the western part of the state. The film is based on a novel by renowned author Kapilesh Prasad Mohapatra (his father).

Speaking about his new venture, Mahapatra said that after Bhukha got international recognition, he always wanted to make another feature film in Sambalpuri. “I had made Bhukha in 1987 and it still remains the only feature film in Sambalpuri dialect. I feel honoured that I am going to make the second one also. It is the story of Maharaja Biramitradaya Singhdeo and his peasants in the early 20th century, when Singhdeo ruled the then Sonepur state,” said Mahapatra.

“The villages, where agriculture is the main source of sustenance, have unique culture, tradition and folk arts. Salabudha captures the quintessential elements of rural landscape in all its simplicity and rustic nature,” the director said at the film’s premiere in Sonepur on Tuesday. This film is a tribute to all senior citizens of Odisha, added Mohapatra.
