Directed by Gautham Ramachandran, the film follows Gargi’s struggle to absolve his father arrested by the police for his alleged involvement in a minor’s gang-rape case. It has been hailed as a ‘one-woman show’ and Sai’s performance is called the best female act of the year in Indian cinema.
Within a month of its release, Gargi is now ready for its OTT premiere as the streaming platform SonyLIV took to its Twitter account and announced that the film will be available from August 12 onwards. Sharing the film’s trailer, the official handle of the OTT giant wrote, “With thrilling elements and an unexpected climax, Gargi will be streamed on SonyLIV from 12th of this month.”

Suriya, who recently won the National Award for Best Actor for his brilliant act in Sudha Kongara’s drama Soorarai Pottru tied with Ajay Devgn for his fierce act in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, was so impressed by Gargi that he decided to present the film under his banner 2D Entertainment which he established with his wife Jyothika.
