It has been 25 years since actor Suriya made an insecure and awkward debut in the Tamil film Nerrukku Ner (1997) by director Vasanth Sai. Interestingly, the S for Vasanthivarananjaniyum Innum Sila Pengalum, which he produced, won national awards for Best Tamil Film, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Editing. Suriya, on the other hand, took the most coveted title, the national best actor award for Soorarai Pottru.

This direct-to-OTT release on Amazon Prime Video was a biopic about GR Gopinath, the man who broke new ground with India’s low-cost airlines, Air Deccan. The film also received criticism for taking some ‘creative liberties’ with the character of Gopinath and misrepresenting him.
