The film tells the life story of Captain Gopinath, who started Budget Aviation or Budget Airlines in India. Directed by Sudha Konkara, the film stars Surya along with Aparna Balamurali, Urvashi, Mohan Babu, and Paresh Rawal in the lead roles.

Actors compete and act throughout the film.
The film is based on Captain GR Gopinath’s autobiography ‘Simply Fly: A Deccan Odyssey’. The film is about Gopinath’s struggles in trying to start a low-cost airline.“Surai Pot is a very special film for me, one that is very close to my heart. With this film, we want to convey the message that nothing in this world can stop you from pursuing your dreams if you honestly submit yourself to a goal, ”Surya said of the film.
Aparna plays the role of Bombay in the film. “Bombay is a completely different person from my character. She is a village girl from Madurai. But whatever she does, she aims for the future. This is very different from the other characters I have acted in so far, ”Aparna told Indian Express.“Sudha Mum has been very careful not to show me as a shy girl. Normal, no cliched romantic scenes. Not even in the songs. The songs Kattu Payale and Veyon Silly were portrayed very differently. Vion Silly was very difficult for me. I have never done a song like this before in my career. It was very challenging for me to dance so much power and equality with Surya Sar, ”added Aparna.
