1. Soorarai Pottru

Soorarai Pottru

A young man cannot complete the last rituals of his later father as he cannot afford a ticket to the flight home. The modes of transportation, which are supposed to save human time and shorten distance, somehow end up creating more division. That young man then decided to create India’s own cheap budget airlines to make air travel affordable and accessible for all. 

This brilliant movie is inspired by the life events of GR Gopinath, the founder of Deccan Airlines. Soorarai Pottru received many prominent awards and was selected among the 10 Indian films to be screened in the “Best Foreign Film” category at the 78th Golden Globe Awards.

After a series of conflicts, the son of a poor farmer is killed, and his brother, Chidambaram, avenges him.
