Kollywood News: Everything you need to know about the Jyotika’s new Prime release ‘Ponmagal Vandhal’
Ponmagal Vandhal is the new film of Jyotika which released on Amazon Prime video today, i.e. 29th of May 2020.
The film was supposed to release in the theatre, but because of the current situation of the world the makers decided to release it on an OTT platform. The movie is one of the few Tamil movies to be led by a female actor. Apart from Jyotika the film also features R Parthiban, K Bhagyaraj, Pandiarajan, Pratap Pothen and Thiagarajan. The film is directed by JJ Fredrick and is a courtroom drama where Jyotika is playing the role of Venba who is fighting for justice.
Jyotika in an interview called this phase of her life in terms of the acting career the second innings. She said now that she is a mother, she wants to do movies which have an impact on society, though we are used to seeing her in glamorous roles, she wants to do movies that are content driven.
Jyotika believes that when it comes to small films, content films or omen centric films-the OTT platforms are far better as audience sitting at home enjoy this content. Whereas the audiences coming to the theatres want the whole entertainment feel of massy dialogues and numbers. She says there has been a drastic change in the type of content the Tamil audience is looking for as well. The trailer with such a serious role like hers garnered 20 million views which are quite close to any other Tamil movie which is led by a male actor.
The film is looking extremely engaging and has been liked by the critics and as well as the audiences. The audience is praising the screenplay, the story and the acting of all the actors and also the directing talents of the debutant director JJ Fredrick who has worked with an ensemble cast.
Jyotika also in an interview said that, Tamil Nadu will surely not resume the shoot of films or even TV serials because of the Covid situation as the cases in Tamil Nadu have been rising with every single day.
