Sports film

A sports film is a film genre in which any particular sport plays a prominent role in the film's plot or acts as its central theme. It is a production in which a sport, sporting event, athlete, or follower of sport are prominently featured, and which depend on sport to a significant degree for their plot motivation or resolution. Despite this, sport is ultimately rarely the central concern of such films and sport performs primarily an allegorical role. Furthermore, sports fans are not necessarily the target demographic in such movies, but sports fans tend to maintain high following and esteem for such movies.

And its allegiance becomes clear."[18] Ashwin Ram of Moviecrow gave the film’s rating 2 out of 5 and wrote "An insane yet interesting conflict presented with a screenplay that should have been done decades ago and an emotional drama that doesn’t have any tension or rooting factors."[19] A critic for Cinema Vikatan wrote that "Taking a familiar village story, the team of 'Pattathu Arasan' has created a boring film with scenes that are not new."[20]
