Chennai 2 Singapore  Review

Director : Abbas Akbar
Star Cast : Gokul Anand, Rajesh Balachandran, Anju Kurian

Chennai 2 Singapore is a whacky fun entertainer which stays true to its genre. It is one of those rare Tamil films which has many moments of pure unadulterated humour. Director Abbas Akbar takes his own sweet time to the story but what really works here is that you cannot point out a single scene which is out of the genre.

Harish (Gokul Anand) is a struggling youngster, who wants to become a filmmaker. Harish’s mom says that the producer whom Harish trusts has another face and not to take him seriously. Soon, as predicted by his mom, Harish finds out that the producer was taking him for granted and is going to make the film with another director. Harish beats up everyone in the production house and is depressed when his friend asks him to go to Singapore to convince a producer who is there. Now the story shifts to Singapore

Harish lands in Singapore but once again bad luck strikes in the form of an accident, as the rich businessman who was supposed to produce Harish's project goes into a coma and the young man loses his passport. Harish meets cameraman Vaanambadi (Rajesh Balachandiran), who takes him to a hotelier Michael Chris Muruganantham (Shiv Kesav). Harish gets two weeks time to write a love script. A confused Harish meets a cancer patient Roshini (Anju Kurian) and decides to follow her to know more about her. Will Harish complete his first film and fall in love?

On the downside, there are a few drop-dead dull sequences which might not evoke laughter but the overall attempt is honest. The film’s extended climax doesn’t feel merely convenient, but also wholly underwhelming.

Gokul fits the bill perfectly as a struggling assistant director. His mannerisms and dialogue delivery reminds you of Vikram. He is charming and is promising. Rajesh Balachandiran who comes as the eccentric guy is a superb find, though its difficult to follow some of his lines. Anju Kurian looks like Nazriya Nazim and the two comedy villains, Shiv Keshav and Emcee Jesz too have done a commendable job.

Chennai 2 Singapore has the look of a grand Bollywood film. Karthik Nallamuthu’s cinematography is brilliant, his lens has captured all the important unexplored places of Singapore and the visuals are splendid. For the first time this year(Magalir Mattum, Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru, Maayavan, Aramm and now, Chennai 2 Singapore), Ghibran has scored sixer in both songs and background score, it’s been a dream year for him. Songs are all shot extremely well in 'music video' style.

This film will definitely satisfy its target audiences.
