A farmer’s daughter dreams to become an International Cricketer and she takes initiatives to it. Her father supports her dream and helps her achieve it. Kausalya, daughter of Murugesan, is passionate about cricket after seeing her father being mad on the game. He breaks down when India loses the match and that was the moment Kausi decided to make her father happy by winning a game for India. But, Kausi’s mom is against her ambition and she feels cricket is not for the women. Meanwhile, Murugesan suffers a lot in agriculture and he is unable to repay his loans. What happened to Murugesan’s farmlands? Did he manage to repay the loans and how did Kausi cross all the hurdles and becomes a cricketer, is the plot.

Star Performance

Aishwarya Rajesh… the Kaakkaa Muttai girl had once again proved that she is an expert in emoting. While speaking about agriculture, she creates Goosebumps. Sathyaraj, the super actor has lived as the farmer and a loving father. Darshan did justice to his role in the debut. The rest of the cast had done their job well. Sivakarthikeyan’s cameo as the coach, adds value to the film.


Arunraja Kamaraj had taken a good subject for his debut. He makes us travel through two genres; women in sports and agriculture. We could say that he succeeds in both the genres. Arunraja’s narration is excellent. The screenplay moves without many jerks. The way Arun deals with the women empowerment receives appreciation. The songs and the BGM are good. The motivational dialogue from Sivakarthikeyan is fantastic.

What’s There?

  • Arunraja Kamaraj’s narration is excellent
  • The performance of Aishwarya and Sathyaraj are top notching
  • The BGM is good

What’s Not There?

  • The romantic track between Aishwarya and Darshan is a bit hurdling the flow
  • Sivakarthikeyan reminds us of Shah Rukh Khan in Chak De India


With a few minuses and a lot of pluses, the film attracts the audiences. It might motivate the women, who want to come up in life and also make the parents support their kids. Besides this, the people will come to know about the pain of the farmers. Kanaa… To Be Achieved!
