Jai Bhim was directed by TJ Gnanavel, and stars Suriya, who plays a lawyer fighting for a petition filed by a pregnant woman whose husband was placed in police custody and later declared missing. It's based on a true story.
The film is part of a new movement in Tamil cinema where a number of young filmmakers are narrating stories of repression against Dalits, who make up about 20% of India's population, but continue to face discrimination and violence.
While the movie never made it to the box office, its popularity is reflected by its 9.6 user rating on IMDb - allowing it to take the number one slot on the platform, beating out beloved Hollywood classics like The Godfather and The Shawshank Redemption. Read more on BBC.
