Suriya’s “Soorarai Pottru” released in Amazon Prime in a festive season only to make the fans of Tamil cinema go gaga over it. It became the first Tamil film to have a background of flight, airport and airlines as its core plot. On seeing a top-tier actor’s film getting released after a very long time due to COVID 19 outbreak, fans of Internet became extremely happy and watched the film overnight.

The relationship between Maara and Bommi(played by Aparna Balamurali) is something we can’t see in Tamil cinema often.
