Although faced with a “technical” snag while taking off, the official trailer of Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru is here with the confirmed release date. This film, inspired by the life of Air Deccan founder Captain GR Gopinath, has been directed by Sudha Kongara. Produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment in association with Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment, the film also stars Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal, veteran Telugu actor Mohan Babu, Karunas, Vivek Prasanna, Krishnakumar, Achyuth Kumar, Kaali Venkat, and Arjunan. It has music by GV Prakash Kumar, Niketh Bommireddy for cinematography and Sathish Suriya for editing.
The 2-minute trailer is an energetic presentation of the film, that talks about one man’s ambition to make flying affordable for the working class. He is a rebel with an idea, as the trailer puts it. Suriya as Nedumaaran (Maara) talks about flying people for Rs 1 — “Yaer otravanum aeroplane la povan” (he who tills the land too will fly in an aeroplane) — and his adversaries mock the idea.
Actors Urvashi (mother) and Aparna Balamurali (his partner) make appearances in the trailer with both women supporting Nedumaaran’s dream. There are gripping moments in the trailer too, especially when a flight crash lands.
It has now been confirmed that Soorarai Pottru will release on November 12, two days before Deepavali. Notably, Suriya’s film will be the first big Tamil film to release directly on Amazon prime OTT platform.
