Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru is the current hot topic in K-town, thanks to the phenomenal response that the film is receiving. This Sudha Kongara directorial released on November 12 on Amazon Prime Video platform amidst huge expectations and it earned majorly positive reviews from the critics and fans. The film looked great in all aspects and it has already made a record breaking viewership in Prime Video’s history. The film is based on the life story of Captain GR Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan Airlines.

Produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment, in association with Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment, the film had music scored by GV Prakash and featured Aparna Balamurali as the female lead. Veteran actor Mohan Babu played an important character in the film and his role received a very good response from the fans and audience. Having said that, the makers of Soorarai Pottru have now released a new making video in which Suriya shares how Mohan Babu was signed for the role. He also recollects the beautiful memories he shared with the legendary actor during the shooting.

Talking about Mohan Babu in the video, Suriya said, “Mohan Babu sir and Rajini sir started their careers together and they’ve now grown to be phenomenal superstars. Mohan Babu started out as a villain, later played supporting characters and then became a hero. Not just that, he also produced movies with NTR and other actors. People call him ‘Collection King’ in Andhra and he has seen everything in life. When we thought he would be suitable to play my mentor’s role in Soorarai Pottru, we heard that he disagreed to be a part of several offers that came his way. We were initially scared to approach him, but thanks to Lakshmi, his daughter, who made things work out.

Mohan Babu sir asked the director to come over to his house at 6.30 AM in the morning to narrate the story and the character. After listening to the story, he said that he is a part of the film and will do anything for me and Sudha. Seeing him work and get ready for the scene was a learning experience for other actors in the shooting spot. He was like a student. We felt responsible to show him in a different dimension that would be enjoyed by his fans and well-wishers. We hope we’ve done justice to that,”.

2020-12-20T16:11:00 +05:30 Suriya Soorarai Pottru to be screened at Golden Globe Awards 2021 - Movie Cinema News

Suriya's Soorarai Pottru is one of the most talked about movies on social media, right now and it has opened to a very positive reception from the fans and critics. The film is directed by Sudha Kongara who is currently the most wanted filmmaker in K-town. Sudha extracted the natural best from Suriya and the audience witnessed a beautiful film with strong emotions. The film is based on the life story of Captain GR Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan Airlines. The film was a fictionalized version of Simply Fly, the book written by Gopinath. Suriya essayed his role in the film and he delivered a raging performance as Maara aka Nedumaaran Rajangam.

Produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment, the film had music scored by GV Prakash and featured Aparna Balamurali as the female lead. Aparna's performance as Bommi and her relationship with Maara was one of the important talking points of the film. However, a certain section of people felt that the film was more dramatized for cinematic viewing and did not convey the true essence. But, Gopinath has defended the makers by saying that the message has been portrayed neatly. He also added that the film would've become a documentary if the team had to stay completely true to the original happenings.

Gopinath posted a series of tweets that read, "A few school friends, army buddies and colleagues in Deccan are disappointed that the movie has not been true to the actual facts of my book / life depicted in Simply Fly. I tell them that it is fictionalised for cinematic effect but beneath the ‘masala’ there’s good meat ! Staying completely factual would have been a documentary. It has value but it is a different genre. A hero may seem ‘macho’ but is vulnerable and the movie shows ‘heroes’ need emotional support from wife and family to win, and team members often sacrifice more than the hero. A wife can share the dream of the hero without sacrificing her own dreams. She can support the male without subordinating herself and losing her own identity and self esteem. On the contrary she can give a fillip and uplift the husbands spirits when it’s flagging.

SUDHA has depicted this through Aparna very eloquently. It’s also in the main a story of rising each time one falls. It’s about telling oneself, I have failed but I’m not a failure. I’m a failure only when I quit. I’m going to get up every time I fall. It’s about not only persisting but believing that there are also good people and the sun will rise and doors are opened. That’s the true message of the movie portrayed so dashingly and convincingly by Suriya."

Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru is the current hot topic in K-town and the film has opened to a phenomenal response from fans across the world. The film has also received very positive reviews from the critics and has attracted a good viewership. The film released on November 12 as a festive release on Amazon Prime Video and there has been no look back since then. Ever since the release, the film and the team of Soorarai Pottru have been showered with love by people. This Sudha Kongara directorial came as a saviour to Amazon Prime’s endless unimpressive direct OTT releases. Suriya’s highly energetic and intense performance as Maara was one of the most talking points of the film, while GV Prakash’s fantastic music and Sudha Kongara’s filmmaking was also the other aspects that garnered good attention.

Aparna Balamurali, who played the female lead, delivered a very impressive performance as Bommi aka Sundari and it was indeed great to see a female lead getting a meaty role in a star hero’s film. Bommi - Maara’s relationship was an interesting watch and it was nice to see their unusual yet beautiful rapport. Aparna Balamurali won the hearts of people in Tamil Nadu with her performance as Bommi and there were several memes and posts, praising her role and acting.

Having said that, a new making video has now been released by the makers and this video shows us how Aparna fitted into the shoes of Bommi. This making video gives us a glimpse of the script reading and training sessions that went behind shaping up the character of Bommi. Sharing her experience about playing Bommi in Soorarai Pottru, Aparna Balamurali said, “Until the shoot, I did not get any confirmation that I was the heroine. The role was set in the 90s and I haven’t worked to this extent in any of my previous films. There were several reading sessions and language corrections regularly. While in pre-production, I had a little stress about the role and so, I went for a workshop under actress Kalairani ma’am. She taught me so much about emotions and I was able to do the movie more freely because of her training.

I knew Tamil to an extent, but this one was quite challenging because of the Madurai dialect. Sathya akka (Aparna’s dialect trainer) was so smart and I am thankful to her. One of the main elements of the movie was the costumes and they wanted me to look unique. I was asked to wear a lot of organza sarees. All of these little details added so much to the character. Right from the first schedule, I was so happy with whatever was happening around me. Everyone helped me and made me do well,”. Check out the making video here:

Suriya's Soorarai Pottru is finally set for its worldwide premiere on November 12 on the Amazon Prime Video OTT platform. The highly-anticipated Sudha Kongara directorial featuring music by G. V. Prakash Kumar has been carrying tremendous expectations right from the moment it went into production in early 2019. Produced jointly by Suriya's 2D Entertainment and Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment banners, the film was initially planned for a theatrical release, with the makers later announcing it to be coming out directly on OTT in view of the coronavirus pandemic. Having said that, GV Prakash has now announced on his Twitter page that there is an exclusive song in Soorarai Pottru, which can be watched once the film premieres on Amazon. He tweeted, "One more special song is in the film ... I kept it as a special to feel it in the picture .... watch it and hear the exclusive trk ... #sooraraipottru ... @Suriya_offl  #sudhakongara @rajsekarpandian".

The expectations for Soorarai Pottru is off the charts as evident by the talk among fans on social media considering the action drama film is perhaps the biggest Tamil film to date to be released on OTT. Film industry personalities who have watched the film as well have been showering praises on a positive note. Although many were disappointed that the film wasn't hitting theatres, many are now content that they would at least get to witness the star in action, especially due to a dearth in entertainment content during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Suriya's highly-anticipated film Soorarai Pottru is all set for a grand worldwide premiere on November 12 on the Amazon Prime Video OTT platform. Directed by Sudha Kongara and featuring music by G. V. Prakash Kumar, the upcoming action drama has faced a number of challenges over its release starting from Suriya's 2D Entertainment and Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment banners announcing the film would not be seeing a theatrical release. Although many fans were disappointed they would not be watching the film in theatres, they were content that they would at least get to witness the star in action, especially since there has been a dearth in entertainment during the lockdown period in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Having said that, the next roadblock the Soorarai Pottru team encountered was the delay in acquiring a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Indian Air Force (IAF) considering the film is centred around the aviation industry. Initially announced for a premiere on Amazon Prime Video on October 30, the NOC was granted a few days back, with the team thereafter announcing November 12 as a new release date in light of Diwali. Now, Suriya has himself celebrated his fans and this time in a video announcement where he shares the news that the autographs of thousands of fans has been sent the highest-altitude in the sky in a specially-constructed hot air balloon, with the help of a German crew. Suriya has revealed that this is the first time ever such a thing has been done for fans, who will no doubt be happy with the actor's latest efforts. 

Dubbed in Telugu as Aakaasam Nee Haddhu Ra, Suriya is essaying a character named Nedumaran Rajangam aka Maara, with his character said to be based on the life of Captain GR Gopinath, the founder of Air Deccan airliner. Soorarai Pottru's promotions have been on point leading up to its Amazon premiere tomorrow, including the teaser and the trailer receiving a strong response. Apart from the visuals, the songs in the film too have witnessed terrific feedback, with composer GV Prakash Kumar delivering a chart-buster album yet again. 

Soorarai Pottru has Suriya paired opposite Sarvam Thaala Mayam actress Aparna Balamurali, with veteran Telugu actor Mohan Babu Paresh Rawal, Vivek Prasanna, Karunas among others cast in major supporting roles. The film also includes a highly talented and stellar technical team featuring names like Niketh Bommi for the cinematography, followed by editing done by Sathish Suriya.
