PlotEdit

Saravanan (Vikranth) makes a living by selling audio cassettes. His father Saamy (Pasupathy) is a bus driver by profession, but his heart lies in Kabadi, and wherever a match is being played, he makes his presence there, thereby neglecting his work and getting suspended. Saravanan scolds his father often for his mistakes, and the family decides to sell all the jewels that they have and buy an ambassador car for Saamy to drive, but he loses that too for a good deed, angering everyone. Elsewhere, Saravanan falls for a college girl named Malar (Arthana Binu) from an upper-class family, and problems start for him. At an important juncture, Saravanan comes to know who his father really is and sets out to become a Kabadi player, a sport which he hates, for his father. Whether the hero succeeds in his mission or not and gets his girl forms the rest of the story.

ProductionEdit

Suseenthiran had written a script for the sequel of Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu (2009) soon after the release of the film, with the story taking forward the tale of the kabadi team following the death of their captain, portrayed by Vishnu in the original film. In March 2015, it was announced that Lakshman Narayan had been signed on to play the lead role after Suseenthiran was impressed with his performance in Jeeva (2014), while Pasupathy would portray his father.[1][2] Aishwarya Dutta was also brought in to feature as the lead actress, before the film was put on hold.[3]

News about the project re-emerged in November 2016, where it was revealed that Vikranth had instead been signed on to play the lead role.[4] The film began production in a temple in Kovilanchery in the outskirts of Chennai on 10 December 2016, with actors from the original film like Kishore, Soori and Appukutty revealed to be playing pivotal roles. Pasupathy and Anupama Kumar joined the cast to essay important roles. A debutant actress, Arthana, was also brought in to play the leading female role.[5][6]
