Confirmed: Soorarai Pottru to release on Amazon Prime
A huge announcement has just been made regarding the release of Suriya’s much-hyped film ‘Soorarai Pottru’. The film will be releasing directly on Amazon Prime. It will start premiering from October 30. At a time when Tamil film industry is still debating over OTT release, this is indeed a big announcement that might prove to be a game-changer. It is not often that a big star film like this get an OTT release.
Soorarai Pottru is produced jointly by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment. The makers had originally planned to release the film during this year’s summer but the pandemic changed everything. The delay in release must have incurred big financial loss. Even if theatres open in the next couple of months, audience count is most likely to be very less initally. All these factors must have been taken into account before finally deciding to release the film in Amazon Prime.
‘Soorarai Pottru’ is a very ambitious film directed by Sudha Kongara. Everything about the film including its teaser, trailer and other promos have all been highly promising. The film is loosely based on the life of GR Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan. It follows the journey of Nedumaaran Rajangam Maara, a common man hailing from Madurai who dreams of owning an aircraft business. Suriya essays the role of Maara and Malayali actress Aparna Balamurali’s plays his wife’s character.
