'Jai Bhim', which is streaming on Amazon Prime currently, has come in for unanimously positive reviews. Streaming in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi, the courtroom drama is a Tamil original.
Starring Suriya, Prakash Raj, Rao Ramesh and others, it has been described by film critics as an important film. Netizens, especially those who like gritty and realistic dramas, are going gaga over how director Tha Sa Gnanavel has depicted a Habeas Corpus case and the investigations.
This is a second major hit for Suirya on OTT during the pandemic. In 2020, 'Soorarain Pottru' ('Aakasame Nee Haddhu Raa') made it to the top charts.
Several activists and lawyers are also tweeting about the movie. "I wish there should be more advocates like Chandru (Suriya's name in 'Jai Bhim') to come forward for people who suffer. The movie is heart-wrenching, made to feel the pains and sufferings of tribal people. I appreciate your entire team for this movie," wrote activist Hansraj Meena.
Celebs have also been busy praising the movie. "I wept throughout 'Jai Bhim'. My heart was in pain. I felt guilty and ashamed. Hats off to Jyo and Suriya for producing this picture. Suriya has shown how a top star can make a great film that is not about only them," wrote actor Siddharth, who was most recently seen in 'Maha Samudram'.
