Jai Bhim is a courtroom drama following real events that transpired in the '90s where innocents hailing from oppressed castes were framed for crimes they did not commit. Suriya plays the lawyer fighting for justice and equality.
In addition to headlining the film, Suriya has also produced it through his production house, 2D Entertainment. The film also features Lijomol Jose, Manikandan, Rajisha Vijayan, Prakash Raj, and Rao Ramesh, among others.
The film is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video tomorrow.
