While Suriya plays the role of Advocate Chandru, the trailer also features a wonderful set of actors including Prakash Raj, Lijo Mol Jose, Manikandan, Rajisha Vijayan and Rao Ramesh. A good story is a job half done, but to deliver an engaging tale, actors must infuse life through their actions and emotions. From the trailer, looks like the talented actors have effortlessly become their respective characters, raising further excitement for the film.
A Brilliant Team behind the camera
Further, to hook the viewer from the first scene to the last it is the team that is behind the camera which makes it possible. The film is written and directed by Tha Se Gnanavel, a journalist turned filmmaker who closely followed the advocate and his fight to bring this inspirational tale on the screen. Along with him, Jai Bhim is a melting pot of creative minds, bringing together SR Kadhir as Director of Photography, Sean Ronald as Music Composer and Philominraj as Editor to add punch to the powerful tale of truth and faith.

The first track ‘Power’ written and sung by one of the most renowned artists Arivu and composed by Sean Roldan, captures the concept of righteousness and struggle to achieve equality. The fast-paced song surely leaves everyone’s foot-tapping and feeling the heat in the fight. Meanwhile, ‘Thala Kodhum’, the second song is a soft melody, beautifully encapsulating the highs and lows of the arduous journey of justice; it is sung by Pradeep Kumar, written by Rajumurugan and composed by Sean Roldan. With these two contrasting melodies, it’s clear that the thought-provoking tale is packed with strong and varied emotions.
