Not as powerfully engaging as Bollywood movie "Chak De! India", though film has the spirit to celebrate sportsmanship.


Film: “Vallinam”;

Cast: Nakul, Mrudhula Basker, Atul Kulkarni, Anupama Kumar, Aadi Pinisetty, Jayaprakash, Y.G Mahendran and Krishna Kulasekaran;

Director
: Arivazhagan;

Rating: ***

In India, the fate of a sport lies in the hands of those with power and political influence. Only those who are privileged get to represent the country in a respective sport while the rest have to struggle entire lifetime to even get an opportunity.

Director Arivazhagan's second directorial "Vallinam", which while addressing the aforementioned points, also highlights the discrimination between sports and sportsmen and shows how a certain sport like cricket has been glorified.
