Sarpatta Parambarai PA Ranjith, known to make films with discrimination and caste suppression, a departure from routines and emerge with a boxing drama that absorbs, starring Arya in the lead, around two famous clans in North Chennai.
Sarpatta Parambarai, is very unlike the other recent films:
Not openly discussing things such as oppression and caste discrimination that have stated it as anti-caste filmmakers. Recovering from the image trap, the film Ranjith is a boxing drama that is very easy and absorbing about clashes between the two famous clans – Sarpatta and Idiyappam – who ruled North Madras in the 1970s.
At the same time, this is also an important story about one person’s struggle for equality and glory. Arya plays a kababil man, which comes from a community that has been rejected for their essential opportunities. And because of recognition, and he must fight for all that changes.
Sarpatta Parambarai is mostly about clashes between two fighting boxing clans and how their competition takes various forms of generation. As much as a sports drama that took a familiar storytelling route.
Ranjith made some fascinating observations. About the oppressed communities that had struggled for their place for years. Arya’s character from Kababil grows watching a boxing match and idolizes local boxing legend Rangan (Pasupathy). As much as Kababil desperately needed the opportunity to prove himself. He robbed his dream only because he came from a community that had been absent.

What made Sarpatta Paradarai enjoyable, apart from being a very entertaining boxing film.
It is that it does not support himself as a film that openly questioned the caste and political system associated with him. This discusses many of these problems on the surface that has never been forced.
Sarpatta Parambarai is a rare film that is not entirely dependent. On her hero to make it accessible to the masses. Not up to 50 when Arya received the right hero elevation scene. This film made him absent and focused on the other main characters.
From Rangan to Vembuli (John Kokken) and Dancing Rose (Shabeer Kallarakkal). Women also get essential parts to play, and they make a strong impact. Anupama Kumar as Arya’s mother, Dushara Vijayan as the wife of Kababil. And Sanchana Natarajan, is the most significant catalyst of the film. Very refreshing to see John Vijay.
Most of which are wasted in ridiculous roles:
Playing essential characters who are fathers and best friends. And scenes among them are some of the best moments of this film. Shabeer as Dancing Rose is another interesting negative character with some ethics. Even though he fought in the name of the Idiyappam clan for glory, he was someone who believed in a fair battle.
Arya shines because it is kababil, and this character will drop as one of her best works. Because it has spent more than two years on the project, watching Sarpatta Parambarai on a large screen will be the cracker experience.
Arrangement of the 1970s Madras and details that have entered into the recreation of the Begin era will be made for an extraordinary theatre experience. The boxing sequence also deserves specially mentioned. Fights don’t match professional standards, but they have been choreography in such a way that they leave you fun to the end.

Sarpatta Parambarai has become a competitor for the best film this year. But it will be more important to remember as a film that marks Ranjith’s return to form. The story of Rousing about the victory that is needed against the northern Madras boxing culture cannot be passed, only because more than a sports drama.
