Vanakkam Chennai teaser: A formulaic comic caper on the cards

Mirchi Shiva and Priya Anand’s upcoming venture looks like a predictable tale as the couple throws eggs and cakes at each other in this teaser

Comedy is definitely the flavour of the season in Kollywood. Having tasted success with Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, his first film as a hero, Udhayanidhi Stalin is producing Vanakkam Chennai, which seems to be on the same lines, going by the first teaser.

With Vanakkam Chennai, Udhayanidhi’s wife Kiruthiga turns director as well.

The movie stars Mirchi Shiva, with his established reputation for comedy, and paired opposite him is Priya Anand, who seems to have firmly planted herself in Kollywood these days. The teaser is set to a pacy number by Anirudh of Kolaveri di fame and shows Shiva and Priya in a major food fight, throwing everything from cakes to eggs at each other.

Even with a newcomer at the helm, you can’t help thinking this is going to be the tried and tested kinda romcom that Kollywood has been churning out lately.
