MUMBAI, India, XY May, 2020 – Amazon Prime Video today released the trailer for the much-awaited Tamil courtroom drama Ponmagal Vandhal, which follows the story of an honest lawyer attempting to free an innocent woman, wrongfully convicted. Produced by 2D Entertainment, the legal drama features a power-packed cast that includes Jyotika, Parthiban, K.Bhagyaraj, Thyagarajan, Pratap Poten and Pandiarajan.

This riveting tale revolves around the story of a resident in Ooty named ‘Petition’ Pethuraj who reopens a case from 2004 that involved a serial killer ‘Psycho Jyoti’ who was convicted for kidnapping and murder.
