Chennai 2 Singapore, a film with full of relatively fresh faces, has released with a crazy and fun-filled screenplay treatment.

This is not a travel film as the title suggests, but a film about a budding filmmaker from Chennai, who goes to Singapore, to meet a producer. Situations put him in a chaotic problem, and he has to spend a few more months in the country. How he spends those days, and what happens during that course of time is what C2S is about.

The strength of C2S is its craziness in the screenplay and a different treatment that has been presented on screen. The film is funky, cool, stylish, comical, and entertaining, but will it be the same for all type of audiences is debatable. Having said that, still, the film has few concerns here and there.

Debutante Gokul Anand is a good find, and he fits the role perfectly. His performance is mature and doesn’t seem to be like a first timer. Rajesh Balachandiran, who plays Gokul’s friend, scores well with his comic timings and one-liners, but if you don’t accept his characterisation at the start, then it is difficult to enjoy him for the rest of the film. Same way, Shiv Keshav and rapper Emcee Jesz, have tried to be funny in every scene, but only a very few pass muster.

The film mostly takes place in Singapore. The characterisation of Rajesh and the two villains as said earlier might look alien, whom we cannot spot in our daily routine life. So, if you could accept these quirky characters, you would enjoy their scenes. The heroine’s characterisation looks weak and doesn’t add any big value to the film.

Also, the logical loopholes are quite plentiful and if you do not mind those, then the film might work better for you. The focus of the film is not clear, until the very end. The engagement is an issue, as there are a few contrived comedy scenes, which no way, help in the acceleration of the film. However, the final twist might surprise.

Technically, the film sounds good, and it doesn’t look like a small budget film. The visuals are colorful and eye-pleasing, and with neat frame composition, it makes the visuals look even richer. Kudos to cinematographer Karthick Nallamuthu. Ghibran’s songs are a big boost, while his background score too, works in favour of the movie. The editing style of the film is different and impressive, and ample credit has to be given to Praveen K.L.

Director Abbas Akbar’s sole intention to entertain people with his humour is notable, and he has succeeded to an extent. With a more engaging and fun screenplay and a confined writing, Abbas could’ve scored much better. Overall, audience who appreciate screenplays with different treatment and characterisations can enjoy C2S better than others.
