Vada Chennai is directed by Vetrimaran under Wunderbar Films banner. It is produced by Dhanush, and the music composed by Santhosh Narayanan, Cinematography by Velraj, editing is done by Sreekar Prasad.
The film is set in North Chennai and more about gang wars in that area, The film begins in a hotel where Guna (Samuthirakani), Senthil (Kishore), Velu (Pavan) and Pazhani (Dheena) sit with bloodstained hands. They have just murdered a famous big shot in that area. While Guna and Velu Agree to go to Prison, Senthil says he will take them out of bail but he did not keep up the promise it leads to a gang war.
Dhanush (Anbu) a superb carrom player he wants to use his skill for living and get a government job on sports quota. He falls in love with dynamic girl Padma(Aishwarya Rajesh) but accidentally he goes to jail for the pretty crime. Anbu gets closer to Senthil’s gang and even wins his heart
When we get the story of Rajan (Ameer), the leader of the fishermen, and Chandra (Andrea Jeremiah). Anbu is forced to stand up for his people against Guna, Senthil forms the climax.
National award winning actor Dhanush delivers an excellent performance. He is simple, cool in the beginning and shows anger, cheat, love all in the movie as script demands. Apart from Dhanush, It is Andrea seen in the powerful role as Chandra who became a highlight in the movie. Aishwarya Rajesh is a big treat to watch, her slang, hyperactive in the free-spirited role is delightful. Ameer as Rajan has a strong impactful role. Samuthirakani and Kishore have done their roles well.
Velraj cinematography and the art department is well presented mainly prison setup id fantastic takes the audience to mid 80's to early 2000's. Vetrimaran has brilliantly written the script which has detailed descriptions of gang war in Vada Chennai. Santosh Narayan music elevates the film with his brilliant score. Sreekar Prasad editing is appreciated but it could have reduced to be more engaging.
Worth watch in theatres
