At first, I am thankful by heart to Director Sudha Kongara & Production Company – 2D Entertainment and Sikhya Entertainment for such masterpiece Movie Soorarai Pottru.

This Tamil Movie is partly based on the activity of Captain Gorur Ramaswamy Iyengar Gopinath.

Soorarai Pottru Movie is also based on Book “Simply Fly: A Deccan Odyssey” written by Captain G R Gopinath

Captain G. R. Gopinath’s Feelings can be understood by his word mentioned below.

“It is not the elite that I consider as my customers. It is the humble cleaning women of my office, the auto-rickshaw driver, and

other such people that we would like to cater to. We want them to dream that they too can fly, and we want to make that dream happen.”

I think that Captain Gopinath is the father of the first low-budget Airplane service in India. He is a very energetic person.

He takes early retirement from ARMY at age of 28  only after 8 years of service.

Further, he started farming at his native place & also run another business. In 1997 he co-founded Deccan Aviation, a Chartered Helicopter Service.

Finally, after a long struggle, he founded “Air Deccan”, a low-cost airline in 2003.

Frankly, it can be said that low-cost air services are a gift or concept of Captain G R Gopinath.

After the operational activity of  “Air Deccan”,  other low-cost air services such as SpiceJet, GoAir, IndiGo & Jet Lite were all launched between 2005 and 2007.


 “Soorarai Pottru”  & “UDAAN” movies digitally premiered on Amazon Prime. Simultaneously the movie dubbed in Hindi, Kannada and Malayalam under the same title and in Telugu as Aakasam Nee Haddu Raa on Amazon Prime.

Story:  “Soorarai Pottru” movies is the story of Air Force Flying Officer Nedumaaran Rajangam (Suriya). He dreams to start a low-cost budget airways service.

But it is very difficult to start such a service against the most capital-intensive industry in the world. How can he become successful in his initiative?
