Movies about sports or sportspersons have always carried some attraction in Kollywood. The latest addition to the list is ”Eetti” which is about a sportsperson being dragged into a crime network. The film has come at the time when a commercial hit is crucial for the talented young actor Atharvaa who has played the lead role in the film. Let”s see whether this film written and directed by debutante Ravi Arasu will achieve that.
Debutante writer director Ravi Arasu has presented action oriented film with good share of romance, family sentiment and comedy. With all these ingredients making the right impact and with Atharvaa giving his best for the role by sporting six packs. The film emerges as a predominantly entertaining and engaging commercial action flick that does not lag anywhere except a few songs that come as speed breakers. We know what is going to happen at the end and the basic story is not out of the box. But still Ravi Arasu has managed to hold up the interest and has employed novel ideas in. In other words the scenes and ideas we are used to and the turns which are predictable have been narrated in a different manner and that makes Ravi Arasu stand out as a commercial filmmaker.
Pugalendhi aka Pugal (Atharvaa) is a Tanjore based athlete who has broken the National record in a hurdling race at College level. When he visits Chennai for the National level hurdling tournament along with his college mates, he accidentally saves the life of the whistleblower who is also his lover Gayathri”s (Sridiviya) brother, from a fake currency mafia run by Shankar (RNR Manohar) and attacks a key member of the gang in the ensuing fight. This turns the mafia against him and they start seeking his blood in revenge. The rest is how Pugal wins over the mafia and emerges as the champion in the National level tournament.
