Nine-year-old calls out abuser, after watching Jyotika's  Ponmagal Vandhal

Jyotika's Ponmagal Vandhal was released last year in May.  The film addressed issues like sexual abuse faced by girls and the need to create an environment that encourages victims to call out their abusers. 

A year after its digital premiere on Amazon Prime Video, it has come to light that a nine-year-old girl who saw the film, got the courage to tell her mother about the abuse she went through. Following the complaint registered by her parents, the perpetrator, a 48-year-old relative has been sentenced to jail for five years.

Ponmagal Vandhal, directed by JJ Fredrick, co-starred K Bhagyaraj, R Parthiban, Thiyagarajan, Pratap K Pothan and R Pandiarajan. The film was bankrolled by Jyotika herself along with Suriya.
