Suriya’s “Soorarai Pottru” released on Amazon Prime with much expectations among the fans of Tamil cinema. The film became the first release of a top-tier actor after the COVID 19 outbreak. Ardent fans of Tamil cinema watched the movie overnight and are reviewing it through their respective social media accounts. The film is receiving widely positive reviews for its intense content and for the performance of the leads.
Directed by Sudha Kongara who stunned audience with her “Irudhi Chuttru”, the film “Soorarai Pottru” is bankrolled by Suriya himself under his own banner 2D entertainments. Due to the corona outbreak, Suriya decided to release the movie directly on Amazon Prime. The film which is inspired from the life history of Air Deccan founder G.R Gopinath, is touted to be a coming of age biographical drama. It is notable that Gopinath is a retired Captain of the Indian Army, an author, and also a politician.
The film’s plot revolves around Nedumaaran Rajangam’s constant struggles to initiate an Airline of his own to make simple people travel in it. He is being confronted by Paresh, an influential personality who is already running a successful airline. Paresh’s ideology of “the rich remain rich and the poor remain poor” and the constant smirk on his face while talking with Maara irritates audience as much as it irritated the protagonist.
The relationship between Maara and Bommi(played by Aparna Balamurali) is something we can’t see in Tamil cinema often. Though their chemistry isn’t the greatest, it worked with regards to the writing of Sudha Kongara. Their portion needed more exploration other than just showing their mutual interest in each other’s dreams. Maara’s relationship with his aging father would have definitely made many people who watched the film shed tears. Oorvashi was just top notch in the role she was provided.
The entire film is set on earlier 2000’s and depicts how Nedumaaran tried to make people fly in flights with just 1 rupee and successfully accomplished his mission with the help of his two friends. From the start, the film stands against caste discrimination and against the discrimination that takes place between rich and poor. Director Sudha Kongara says that she took inspiration from G.R Gopinath’s autobiography “Simple fly” and made a story that is suitable for the entertainment medium.
The background score of G.V Prakash acted as a backbone for his film whereas the camera work done by Nikketh Bommireddy increased the intensity of the plot. Suriya’s performance in the film is being considered as his career best as he made audience forget that they are watching a film. He who lifted the film in his shoulders throughout the second half, succeeded as a man who will reach any length to achieve his dream.
