New Delhi: Prime Video on Friday announced the global streaming premiere of the Tamil period drama ‘August 16 1947’, from today onwards.

Directed by NS Ponkumar, and produced by A R Murugadoss, the film stars Gautham Karthik, Jason Shah, Pugazh, Richard Ashton, and Revathy Sharma in pivotal roles.

A captivating tale of resilience and freedom, ‘August 16 1947’, is set in the secluded village of Sengadu, located in the pre-independence Madras, where an atrocious British general- Robert Clive, and his son Justin, are in charge.

Spanning over three days from August 14, the story follows the lives of illiterate and oppressed villagers who fail to receive the timely news of India’s Independence due to isolation. Things begin to change when a local lout, Param (Gautham Karthik), leads a revolt to free them all and also save the love of his life- Deepali (Revathy Sharma) from Justin’s advances.
