The teaser of Suriya starrer Soorarai Pottru is out now. Directed by Sudha Kongara of Irudhi Suttru fame, the film is being bankrolled by Suriya and Rajsekar Karpoorasundarapandian under their 2D Entertainment banner with Bollywood producer Guneet Monga and Aalif Surti co-producing it under their Sikhya Entertainment banner. Guneet is foraying into the Kollywood industry with the film.
Nedumaaran Rajangam (Suriya) is seen to struggle and face backlash, exhibiting a myriad of emotions, in his attempt to start-up an airline company with a meager amount of six-thousand rupees as the dialogue in the teaser goes. Although he’s found with a beard and military cut in most points of the teaser, we also find him scraggly haired and with a shaved stubble in some parts. GV Prakash‘s background score – ‘Maara Theme’ works just right, enhancing the mood of the teaser to a great extent.

The film is reportedly a biopic on the life of Capt (Retd) GR Gopinath, who founded Air Deccan and introduced the concept of budget airlines in the country. It will star Sarvam Thaala Mayam fame Aparna Balamurali opposite Suriya. Apart from the lead, actors Mohan Babu, Paresh Rawal, Urvashi, Karunas, Vivek Prasanna, Krishna Kumar, and Kaali Venkat are also playing significant roles. Mohan Babu is making his Tamil film comeback after 40 years.
While GV Prakash is composing music, cinematography is by Niketh Bommireddy, production design by Jacki, editing by Satish Surya and costumes by Poornima Ramaswamy. Hollywood stunt choreographer Greg Powell, who has worked on films like Skyfall, Fast And Furious and Bourne Ultimatum, is choreographing the action sequences along with Vicky. Shobi and Sekhar VJ are choreographing the dance.
GV Prakash also tweeted recently that Thaikkudam Bridge, the popular band from Kerala, has collaborated and recreated one of its iconic numbers ‘Urumbu’ from the album Navarasam for the film.
On venturing into Tamil films, Monga said, “We are thrilled to start our journey in Tamil cinema with none other than Suriya for our film Soorarai Pottru. He is a national icon and one of the best actors in our country. This is truly a dream team here, with Suriya and Rajsekar Karpoorasundarapandian’s 2D Entertainment and Aalif Surti and Shriram Krishnan on my maiden venture in Tamil cinema”.
Soorarai Pottru will hit screens this summer.
