Venkat Prabhu’s Chennai 600028 II, the sequel to his own Chennai 600028, is all set to hit the screens today (09th December) all over Tamil Nadu.
Venkat Prabhu set a new trend by making Kollywood’s first-ever cricket-based film with Chennai 600028 which had Jai, Vijay Vasanth, Shiva, Arvind Akash, etc, in equal roles. It had the now-married Vijayalakshmi as Shiva’s heroine. Eight years down the line, Venkat has made the sequel and has mostly repeated the same cast sans heroine Vijayalakshmi.
Though many sports-based films were made later, none could taste as much success at the box-office as Chennai 600028 could. The film’s trailer and songs have been peppy and much to the manner suiting preferences of today’s youths.
Earlier, it was said that the film’s release might be postponed due to the after-effects of demonetization; however, it has since been confirmed that the film is all set to release in theatres today.
