Star Performance

Arya had done a lot of homework for the role. He toned his body and appeared as a real champion. His performance is excellent. Pasupathy is superb, as usual. Anupama’s expressions and dialogue delivery are perfect. Kalaiyarasan and Dushara had done a neat job. The rest of the stars fit well in their roles.


Pa Ranjith is an expert in portraying human emotions and relationships. He had always correlated them with sports in some way. This is one of his best films so far. The screenplay, dialogues, and sequences are perfect. The BGM and the cinematography are really appreciable. Editing is perfect. The production design is stunning. They have designed the background extraordinarily well. Kudos to the art director.

What’s There?

  • Script, screenplay, and direction are good
  • Performances of the stars are natural
  • The film is technically sound

What’s Not There?

  • Except for a few minor loopholes, nothing looks negative


Sarpatta Parambarai is a good sports drama that comes with sports, sentiment, relationships, and pride. It is not only for Ranjith and Arya fans, but the intense drama is for the people who love sports movies too!
