Story


Potta Potti is a 2011 Indian Tamil costume drama, sports film released on Aug 05, 2011. The film is directed by Yuvaraja, produced by Muraliraman.
After that, it's a swift retreat to the rural wilds of Upparappatti, in Tamil Nadu, the various humdrum lives of Kodaivaanan (R Sivam), and Kolai Vaanan (Umar), both bigwigs in the village, permanently at each other's throats. Their enmity extends towards Ranjitham (Harini), their cousin and the daughter of the village's resident rich man. So often do the comical Kodai Vaanan, and the villainous Kodai Vaanan come to blows that the village eventually decides there's only way to resolve things: have a cricket-match between the two. Whoever wins gets the riches and the girl. Never mind that the girl doesn't like either of them -- and this is a fact that's used with much humour by all characters concerned. Into the hilarious melee tumble the respective teams' cricket coaches, for neither of the two teams has the vaguest idea about how to play the game (something you find difficult to believe, considering the day and age). Kolai Vaanan's team ends up with the hilariously idiotic Harichandra (Mayilsamy) who doesn't know one end of a bat from another, while Sadagopan Ramesh himself ends up coaching Kodai Vaanan's team, with many hilarious episodes concerning his sidekick, Avathaaram (Avathar Ganesh). So far, so good. There are many comic interludes, and despite Sadagopan Ramesh's lacklustre performance, R Sivam, Umar and Avathar Ganesh provide plenty of incentive for you to sit through the first half. Harini, the heroine, could do with acting lessons, though. In the second half, the story suddenly sidetracks, roping in quarrying, destroying natural resources, and unscrupulous businessmen in an attempt to make this a serious story -- so when you finally get to see the climactic cricket-match (liberally inspired from Lagaan, including the training song and campfire), you feel no empathy with the characters. You know how it's going to turn out, anyway.
