Amazon Prime Video today released the trailer for the much-awaited Tamil courtroom drama Ponmagal Vandhal, which follows the story of an honest lawyer attempting to free an innocent woman, who is wrongfully convicted. Produced by 2D Entertainment, the legal drama features a power-packed cast, that includes Jyothika, Parthiban, K Bhagyaraj, Thyagarajan, Pratap Poten and Pandiarajan. Being the first Tamil film to premiere worldwide directly on Amazon Prime Video, Ponmagal Vandhal will be available exclusively for Prime members to stream from May 29, in more than 200 countries and territories.
This riveting tale revolves around the story of a resident in Ooty named 'Petition' Pethuraj, who reopens a case from 2004 that involved a serial killer 'Psycho Jyoti' who was convicted for kidnapping and murder. Venba, his daughter and a passionate lawyer, weaves through the loopholes to unveil the truth. The case is a devious maze where nothing is what it seems on the surface. Condemned to be hungry for fame and publicity, Venba stands for justice despite the challenges that are thrown at her. Amazon Prime Video viewers can get set for a nail-biting climax as one waits to see if Venba is successful in proving Jyoti's innocence or not.
