Tamil Movie Kappalottiya Thamizhan - The Tamilian who launched a ship. The film is based on the life of Va Vu Chidambaram Pillai, Who founded the Swadeshi stream Navigation company to break the Monopoly of the British over trade out of India.

The movie effectively portrays the hardships undergone by V.O.Chidambaram Pillai, who was responsible for launching the first Indian ship on Indian waters. V.O.Chidambaram Pillai(Sivaji) is a lawyer and also the owner of a large salt factory. He is a true patriot, leading the movement to burn all foreign goods.

Noticing that there was no Indian ship plying in the Indian waters, he collects the money needed to buy a ship and launches the ship. He, along with Subramaniam Siva, is arrested for leading a strike of workers at a mill run by the English and suffers untold hardship in prison. The movie effectively shows us the hardships undergone by the people in order to gain independence and makes us admire the patriotic fervor in the few characters it focusses on.

Sivaji brings Chidambaram Pillai before our eyes with his portrayal of the freedom fighter. Watch this Tamil Patriotic Movie Kappalottiya Thamizhan starring Sivaji Ganesan, Gemini Ganesan, Savithri, S.V.Ranga Rao and directed by B.R.Panthulu and Music by G.Ramanathan.
