This story takes place in a colorful town called Arakonam where two young cricket teams led by charismatic leaders Ranjith and Rajesh intersected their lives together. They would be drawn into a fierce conflict that would have implications outside of sport. Even though players have various personal commitments to balance with their sporting careers, they never lose hope in this game.
The movie has ingeniously demonstrated how sports, which are normally seen as an instrument for unifying people, can be used to depict societal divisions when influenced by external forces. The battle for supremacy on the cricket field is reflective of the power dynamics within the town and provides a perspective on how political agendas can threaten unity.
Corruption, discrimination, misuse of power are some of the issues that “Blue Star” boldly addresses in its narrative. These themes have been subtly integrated into “Blue Star”, a tamil screenplay written by Tamil Prabha.

Gradually however this story becomes a metaphorical illustration through cricket matches for other collective or individual challenges faced by the characters as they go on with their lives. At first glance Arakonam appears as an animated close-knit society yet it becomes an hourglass encapsulating all societal problems experienced worldwide in miniature size.
