1947 August16 is a power packed period saga directed by debutant, N.S. Ponkumar, who has been Murugadoss’s long-time associate director. Starring Gautham Karthik alongside debutant Revathy, the film tells the story of a remote village where one brave man battles evil British forces during the cusp of Indian independence. Shot in the pristine and picturesque inner locales of Tamil Nadu, the project is on the heels of completion, currently in the post production stage.

Producer Om Prakash Bhatt, Purple Bull Entertainment, said, “The Tamil film industry has always been a pioneer when it comes to marrying top notch craft with stellar scripts and breath-taking performances. We are happy to be a part of this wonderful industry, and that too with a movie as special as 1947 August16

Producer AR Murugadoss added, “1947 August16 is an ambitious and honest story that I came across. It is a significant and heart touching piece of work that demanded to be told and heard. This will stay with you forever once you see it.”

“This is not a story about a freedom struggle, but a group of innocent villagers understanding ‘What is Freedom?’ One among them is the protagonist, who is always aggressive and furious, a heroine with a yearning heart, people who laugh out sarcastically about their problems, and old-aged elderly couple in love. The story revolving around these characters is narrated with emotional essence and a gripping screenplay,” concluded director N.S. Ponkumar.

Purple Bull Entertainment presents, 1947 August16, an A.R. Murugadoss production, produced by A.R. Murugadoss, Om Prakash Bhatt and Narsiram Choudhary, co-produced by Aditya Joshi, releasing in cinemas soon.
