'Jai Bhim', which skipped a theatrical release last year and was released directly on Amazon Prime, stars Suriya in the lead. Directed by TJ Gnanavel, the film has now received an Oscars honour.
A clip from the social and legal courtroom drama has made it to the Oscars YouTube channel. Suriya's production house has described it as an honour of the highest order.
Here is what the YouTube channel of The Academy says about a particular scene as dissected by the director of the film: “Jai Bhim weaves in real case studies helmed by Activist-Lawyer Chandru, who brought justice to indigenous tribes in Tamilnadu through his relentless efforts. Writer-director TJ Gnanavel reveals how the story narrative was formed and executed."
Lijomol Jose, Manikandan, Rajisha Vijayan, Prakash Raj and Rao Ramesh played important roles in the movie.
