With cricket being Sri Lanka’s national past time, Super Six revolves around a group of youth from Moratuwa participating in the Super Sixes, a six-a-side tournament,” he said at the launch of the movie. The movie combines the influences of romance, comedy, action and fantasy and is the first movie to be launched in the country after the end of the battle against the LTTE.

The movie incorporates all emotions and senses known to the human mind and spirit.” Palliyaguruge said that “there are unpredictable perils of fate and destiny that are intertwined in each of these young people’s lives while they strive to achieve their dreams on the singular platform of the cricket pitch. But as the film unspools the rivalry between the teams spill over into their off-the pitch lives although the ultimate lessons are the values they learn from one another in this ‘Super Sixes’ tournament.”
