There is something about a well made sports movie that commands everybody’s attention, even if you’re not much interested in sports. Because sport films are well and truly inspirational. They have everything that a good film should have – story of a painful struggle, obstacles in the way, family and emotional complications and above all that hard-to-reach-for goal that is constantly playing on the mind. The story builds up and towards the end, when it almost seems impossible, victory, sweet and satisfying victory finally happens and there is not a single eye amongst the audience that isn’t moist with tears or a single heart that isn’t glad for the hero/heroine of the film. In Tamil, we first saw a successfully made movie like that in Badri, starring Thalapathy Vijay, and later Aadukulam and Irudhu Suttru. Now, if you’re a fan of sports films, then this period of lockdown and social distancing is the perfect time to knock off a few more sports movies from your bucket list. We’ve come up with two recent sports films that you can watch on ZEE5 to alleviate your lockdown blues and keep you feeling inspired.

Another film that deals with sports genre is Kennedy Cub, helmed by Suseenthiran, it revolves around the story of a coach, who trains a team of underprivileged but talented female Kabaddi players.
