Tribal performance in Tamil Nadu expressing solidarity and gratitude to actor Suriya. MR Murugan, President, Tamil Nadu Tribal Nomads Federation, said that the recently released OTD starrer ‘Jai Bhim’ directed by Thase Gnanavelu has brought to light their crisis. Fifty people from different tribes came in front of the Madurai Collectorate carrying rats and snakes in their hands to symbolize the film.
People from the categories of Kaatunayakan, Sholaga, Adiyan and Kanikkar participated in the demonstration. “Jai Bhim is a film that presents to the world the deplorable living conditions of the adivasis and their existence. We are very grateful to Surya for that,” said MR Murugan. The Vanniyar community organization had come to the scene alleging that the film had portrayed them badly. When asked about this, MR Murugan said that about 20 lakh tribals in Tamil Nadu are with Surya.
Written and directed by Tha Gnanavel, the film is a legal drama. Surya plays the role of Chandru, a lawyer who works for the oppressed. Malayalee actress Lijomol, who played the role of Senkani, who is trying to get justice for her husband, had received a big round of applause. The character was hailed as the best performance of Lijomol’s career. The film is produced by 2D Entertainments, Surya’s own production company. The film was Surya’s direct OT release after Surai Pot. Jai Bhim was released for two months this month through Amazon Prime.
