Plot: The usual poor guy falling in love with a rich girl story packed in new package with good star cast and direction. Vanakkam chennai is a well presented romantic comedy. The plot can be guessed in the first thirty minutes of the movie.
Shiva plays the role of a soft and decent M Sc gold medallist, Ajay, who has left his hometown in Theni to take up a job in Chennai.
Priya Anand is Anjali, a passionate photographer from London. She is visiting India to participant in a photograpy competition, and to capture the rich and colourful heritage of the country. Narayanan (Santhanam) is a wily house agent in Chennai, who rents out unoccupied houses to gullible individuals from out of town without the knowledge of the house owners. Ajay and Anajali bumps into each other in chennai caught in Santhanams fraud scheme.
The two are stuck in a situation where they do not have enough money to pay the advance for a new house, and neither are they able to find the elusive Narayanan to get back their money.
After a lot of squabbling and fighting, they eventually decide to stay together until they find Narayanan.
As they slowly settle down, they get to know each other and become friends.
Ajay learns that Anjali is engaged to Deepak (Rahul Ravindran). Unfortunately, this does not stop him from falling in love with the lovely Anjali. Finally, they both fall in love at the end.
Vanakkam Chennai features a supporting cast of seasoned performers such as Oorvasi, Mano Bala, Nasser and Renuka along with the likes of Black Pandi, Aarthi, Swaminathan and Rajkumar who all appear in brief roles. Apart from the lead pair, the only character who gets enough screen time is Santhanam and its business as usual for the in-demand comedian and he doesn’t let the house down.
Anirudh of Kolaveri fame seems to have hit the jackpot once again; almost all the tracks in the film have become chartbusters overnight.
Verdict: If you want to spend a jolly good time and if you like romance, comedy and songs then it’s worth watching once. Don’t watch with high expectations.
