Plot
Set
in
the
1980s,
the
sports
flick
follows
Kabilan
(Arya)
a
supporter
of
the
Sarpatta
clan,
who
dreams
of
becoming
a
boxer,
an
idea
time
and
again
objected
by
his
mother,
who
believes
that
it
was
her
husband’s
boxing
skills
that
got
him
killed
as
a
henchman.
Stating
that
she
doesn’t
want
the
same
fate
for
her
beloved
son,
she
tries
to
keep
him
away
from
the
ring,
even
as
a
spectator.
Though
he
secretly
joins
the
boxing
class
of
coach
Rangan
(Pasupathy)
he
is
again
warned
by
his
mother,
who
even
humiliates
the
master.
Well,
the
incident
hurts
Rangan
who
throws
him
out
of
the
class,
putting
an
end
to
Kabilan’s
passion.
Years
apart,
Kabilan
ties
the
knot
with
Mariamma
(Dushara).
On
the
other
hand,
the
Sarpatta
clan
struggles
as
their
boxers
fail
to
defeat
an
aggressive
opponent
Vembuli
(John
Kokken)
of
the
Idiyappa
clan.
Post
their
big
failure,
a
disappointed
Rangan
is
challenged
by
his
rival
coach-
one
final
bout
and
if
his
player
fails,
the
Sarpatta
clan
will
never
step
into
the
boxing
ring
again.
Will
Rangan
accept
the
challenge?
If
yes,
who
will
represent
the
Sarpatta
clan
in
this
do-or-die
game
of
boxing?
To
get
all
the
answers
you
need
to
watch

Sarpatta
Parambarai
on
Amazon
Prime
Video.
Story
and
Direction
Considering
the
very
fact
that

Sarpatta
Parambarai
is
a
sports
drama,
one
would
expect
the
unexpected
from
it.
However,
the
moment
you
begin
watching
the
Arya-starrer,
you
would
know
where
the
film
is
heading
towards.
With
such
a
unique
concept
and
promising
artists
in
hand,
Pa
Ranjith,
the
very
talented
director
could
have
done
much
better.
Though
the
film
is
watchable,
it
leaves
no
stone
unturned
to
drain
the
viewer
with
its
cliché
story
and
sequences.
On
a
lighter
note,
most
of
the
technicalities
and
minute
details
of
boxing
have
been
displayed
duly
and
it
needs
to
be
appreciated.
Performances
Arya
as
Kabilan
looks
convincing.
His
role
in

Sarpatta
Parambarai
is
challenging
and
layered
and
without
doubt,
the
actor
has
showcased
his
acting
prowess
effortlessly.
His
fine
gestures
and
expressions
gels
so
well
that
one
can
easily
empathize
with
his
character.
The
handsome
actor
never
disappoints
fans
with
his
performances
and
this
time
too
he
has
amazed
us
with
his
brilliant
acting
stints.
Pasupathy
has
aced
his
role
as
a
boxing
coach
to
perfection.
His
nuanced
performance
and
dialogue
delivery
are
the
highlights
of
the
film.
Though
one
might
feel
like
juxtaposing
him
with
other
actors
who
have
earlier
played
the
role
of
super
strict
coaches
in
films,
you
would
only
end
up
calling
Pasupathy’s
character
Rangan
an
unconventional
one,
such
is
the
power
of
his
acting
prowess
that
completely
stands
out
from
the
rest.
Technical
Aspects
Music
composer
Santhosh
Narayanan
has
failed
to
make
an
impact.
Though
there
were
high
expectations
from
the
renowned
composer,
the
BGM
seemed
haphazardly
jammed.
Editor
Selva
RK
could
have
cropped
unnecessary
sequences
as
the
3-hour
runtime
seemed
too
long.
Murali
G’s
cinematography
looks
decent
and
deserves
applause.
Verdict
Sarpatta
Parambarai
is
a
passable
film
saved
by
the
performances
of
Arya
and
Pasupathy.
The
Pa
Ranjith-directorial
is
intense
but
lacks
emotions
at
places
and
is
predictable
in
most
of
the
parts.
