'A real roller coaster': Suriya gets huge honor from the real 'Soorarai Pottru'!

Suriya's latest Soorarai Pottru is on the skies of appreciation and compliments after having a perfect take-off and earning a resounding reception among the fans and across the borders. The movie was released on November 12 directly on Amazon Prime Video. In what has become a Diwali's gift from Suriya to his fans, the movie is the first big release of Tamil Cinema on the OTT platform. 

Besides the fans of Suriya, the movie was overwhelmingly expected by the audience for its crew and its storyline. The movie was based on the life story of Captain GR Gopinath, who was a former Indian Army personnel and founded the low-cost airline 'Air Deccan'. The movie was based on Gopinath's book 'Simply Fly' and when the movie was widely celebrated and commended by the fans and audience, what else is important for the team than receiving remarkable praise from the real Soorarai Pottru, GR Gopinath himself. 

Giving a greater relish to Suriya and the whole movie team, Gopinath has heartily praised the entire team for reprising his life. In a series of tweets, Gopinath poured compliments for presenting such a splendid take-off. On Friday, he tweeted, "Sorarai potru ..Heavily fictionalized but outstanding in capturing the true essence of the story of my book. A real roller coaster. Yes watched it last night. Couldn’t help laughing and crying on many family scenes that brought memories."

Speaking about the movie and how it reflected his book, Gopinath said, "Dramatised but true to the undying spirit of the triumph of hope against struggles and tribulations of an entrepreneur with disadvantaged rural background over overwhelming odds." Lauding Aparna Balamurali, who is the female lead, for the portrayal of his wife, Gopinath said Aparna was very well etched out of a woman who had her own mind. 

He wrote, "The portrayal of my wife Bhargavi by Aparna was very well etched out, of a woman who had her own mind, strong but soft, feisty and fearless and an inspiration to rural women especially who are equal and can be entrepreneurs in their own right." Speaking about Suriya's role as Nedumaran, Gopinath said, "And Suriya was powerful and carried off the part of an entrepreneur obsessed to the point of madness that makes dreams come true. A timely and great uplifting story in these times of gloom".

Saluting director Sudha Kongara for her revolutionary work, Gopinath said, "And kudos and big salute to Director Sudha, to have balanced very deftly a male-centric story lead by Suriya by portraying a wife acted by Aparna who was a powerful counterbalance in an inspiring and heartwarming way"

According to reports, Gopinath had earlier said that he hasn't watched any of Suriya's films. Soorarai Pottru has become one of the significant movies in Suriya's career and it has given him a much-needed take-off to reach more heights and success. Directed by Sudha Kongara, the movie is starred by Aparna Balamurali, Karunas, Mohan Babu, Paresh Rawal, and Urvashi in lead roles. It was released on Amazon Prime Video and GV Prakash has composed the music. 

Suriya has been on the rains of appreciation from the fans and fraternities across and beyond the borders. As Gopinath celebrates his birthday on Friday, Suriya conveyed his birthday wishes and replying to Gopinath's huge praise and honoring remarks about the movie, Suriya said, "Dearest Captain! So happy and excited you liked it!!!! Our small way of paying respect to what you believed in and what you did for our country! Hoping many more will be inspired".
