Soorarai Pottru Star Suriya Names the Bollywood Movies That Inspire Him

Tamil superstar Suriya believes that films should give hope and inspiration, beyond entertainment. He is not against the concept of larger-than-life films, but he primarily looks for stories that inspire. Although he has featured only in one Hindi film, “Rakht Charitra 2“, by Ram Gopal Varma, as an audience he does watch a lot of Bollywood films, and the ones inspired by true stories have certainly left him impressed. Vijay Deverakonda Is All Praises For Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru!

“You always have a special place for films like ‘Neerja’, ‘Padman’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Manjhi’. These films somewhere take a special place in your heart. They not only tell stories, but also give hope and inspiration. They show how strong our people are,” Suriya told IANS. It’s not like he is against the concept of larger-than-life films. “I have done movies like ‘Singam’ and ‘Ghajini’, and I loved them. But for me movies, apart from entertainment, should have an impact. Soorarai Pottru Movie Review: Suriya’s New Film On Amazon Prime Video Labelled As An Inspiring Tale And The Actor’s Best Outing By Critics

There should be some learning, something that you want to keep, something that will make you ponder. I think those takeaways are also important in movies apart from entertainment. Something that will make you think or change your beliefs…movies can do that. They help to take life decisions. I like those experiences,” he said. “Sometimes we get feedback from people that families that had not spoken to each other for 10 years, got united after watching a film, so movies should not be just about music, dance and comedy. When you are able to leave an impact on someone’s life, those films are always timeless,” he added.

His recent release “Soorarai Pottru” has been praised by many for narrating an inspiring story. The film is a fictionalised account of the life of GR Gopinath, founder of the low cost airline Air Deccan. “It is not a biopic. It’s a blend of a lot of instances. We have not named the main character Gopinath. Definitely his army backdrop, then being a teacher’s son, and getting into airline industry — all these are said in a different way in the movie. It’s more dramatic, making it a wonderful watch,” said Suriya.

The movie is available on Amazon Prime Video. “Life has to go on and we need to adapt and do the best with whatever is possible. The theatres are slowly opening, but the decision (to release on an OTT platform) was taken months ago. This was the best decision we could have taken. Instead of the audience coming to us, this time we went to them,” said Suriya.

Bigg Boss 14 December 01 Episode: Aly Goni and Jasmin Bhasin Asked To Mutually Decide Who Will Leave the BB14 House - 5 Highlights of Tonight's Episode 

Bigg Boss 14 introduced the biggest twist of the season – the Finale Week where one by one all but 4 contestants will reach the finals. They will then have to beat challengers (ex-Bigg Boss contestants) to go ahead in the game. And tonight’s episode of BB14 sees the contestants battle one another fiercely to stay safe from elimination. Check out the highlights below: Bigg Boss 14 December 1 Synopsis: Contestants Are Pelted With Teekhe Sawaal, Aly Goni and Jasmin Bhasin Face A Tough Choice.

Mountain Out Of Molehill

Eijaz Khan’s conversation about Shehzad Deol irks Jasmin Bhasin who tells Nikki Tamboli about how he is manipulative. Nikki confronts Eijaz and Eijaz confronts Jasmin and the molehill becomes a mountain. Rahul too gets involved in the issue and everyone gets involved. Totally unnecessary, if you ask us! Bigg Boss 14: Hotelier Sumit Maheshwari Claims Pavitra Punia Is Still Married To Him, Says She Cheated on Him 4 Times.

First Eviction of Finale Week

Bigg Boss announces that the first finale week’s eviction will take place. The contestants have to pair up and answer some harsh questions posed to them by their fellow contestants. They have to keep the conversation going until 37 minutes. The one closest to the goal will win immunity whereas the pair who is least accurate, will face the danger of elimination.

Rubina – Abhinav Fight

During the task planning, tempers flare between Rubina and Abhinav over the strategies that they will imply. When Abhinav tells Rubina that she needs to listen to what he has to say and keep quiet, she gets angry and tempers flare between them.

Task Begins

First up are Kavita Kaushik and Nikki Tamboli who are pelted will all sorts of questions. Next up are Aly Goni and Jasmin Bhasin and Kavita and Nikki pelt them with piercing questions. Rubina attempts to resolve her issues with Jasmin but nothing happens. Abhinav and Rubina are pelted with questions about their separation which irks Abhinav later on. Eijaz and Rahul too are bombarded with questions.

Task Winner

Bigg Boss announces that Aly and Jasmin exceeded 20 minutes more than the target time and hence are declared unsafe. But they are given the choice – to decide amongst themselves and pick a name who will leave the show.

In the next episode of Bigg Boss 14, we’ll see Aly and Jasmin argue with each other on who will leave the show. While Aly roots for Jasmin all the way, the actress cries her heart out saying that she wants to either play the game with Aly or leave the show.
