Amazon Prime Video is all set to release the much-awaited Tamil courtroom drama Ponmagal Vandhal on 29th May, which follows the story of an honest lawyer attempting to free an innocent woman, wrongfully convicted.

Being the first Tamil film to premiere worldwide directly on Amazon Prime Video, Ponmagal Vandhal will be available exclusively for Prime members to stream in more than 200 countries and territories.
Speaking on this occasion, actor Jyotika said, “We are excited that Ponmagal Vandhal is the first Tamil film set to be launched on direct-to-stream on 29th May 2020. Each actor looks for challenging roles that take their acting to greater heights and my character Venba has brought out the best in me. I am glad to have led a film that portrays a strong female character who will go to great lengths to seek justice. With Amazon Prime Video’s extensive reach, Tamil film lovers as well as a global audience shall be kept at the edge of their seats.”
“Every actor has films that they have invested a large part of themselves in. This is one such film for Jyotika and it excited her to be working with 5 veteran actors in a single film. Initially to see a young director bringing us such an intense script was extremely commendable. Fredrick has written the character and the script in such a way that it feels relevant timelessly, even during the testing times of this pandemic. We believe that any film being put out to the world, should have points that would leave the audience to ponder or debate upon and Jo’s films have done it time and again for the well-being of the society. On having watched the preview of the film, we are extremely happy with the effect it created on both men and women who watched it. I am also a huge fan of thrillers and this film satisfies me as an audience and also a producer. We are also happy to be associated with Amazon prime video who are taking this content to over 200 countries and territories.” said well-acclaimed actor-producer Suriya.
