Can a police officer tread the fine path between serving the public and abiding by the system? After delivering a spate of blockbusters as a director and actor, Prabhu Deva is all set to take his fans on a thrilling adventure in a never-seen-before avatar in Disney+ Hotstar’s fast-paced investigative cop-thriller Pon Manickavel. With a gripping narrative, the action packed entertainer follows the life of an honest police officer’s journey to fight for justice against all odds. Marking his landmark 50th film as an actor, Prabhu Deva takes centre stage as the titular character Pon Manickavel, based on an eminent real-life Inspector General.

Starring Nivetha Pethuraj in the lead, the movie also marks the last film of the late Mahendran, one of Kollywood’s legendary filmmakers. The pacy story written and directed by AC Mugil and produced by Nemichand Jhabak, packs a punch with action, drama, and thrill, making it a complete family entertainer. Music director D. Imman has composed the soundtracks in the movie, sung by Shreya Ghoshal, Sreekanth Hariharan, Shikha Prabhakaran, Sukumar, among others. The highly-anticipated film Pon Manickavel will release on 19th November exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.

Director AC Mugil said, “The real-life hero Pon Manickavel became an inspiration for many to believe in the power of justice and truth. We brought together some incredible actors and crew to bring this project to life - From Prabhu Deva, the perfect fit for a cop to Nivetha, who is an embodiment of strength and virtue, we really had a great opportunity here to do complete justice to the role of an inspiring officer who touched several lives. The film follows an honest Inspector General’s life who faces roadblocks in the way of fighting for justice. Manickavel goes to any extent to make sure that justice is served even if that comes at the cost of his reputation being tarnished. We had to give the audience something that would leave an indelible mark and I believe with all my heart that this film, Pon Manickavel will be one that people will love for generations to come.”
