Just a few hours after Dhanush starrer film ‘Vada Chennai’ hits the theatres on October 17, the active gang Tamil Rockers did its job and leaked the full movie online. The film has been received well by the audience. However, its online leak is now set to hit its business at the Box Office. Vada Chennai was director Vetri Maaran and Dhanush’s dream project, which took about three years for completion. Starring Ameer, Andrea Jeremiah, Kishore, Samuthirakani and Pawan, the film is about the life of gangsters in Vada Chennai.

Vada Chennai gets thumbs up on Day 1 from the audience and critics for its accurate portrayal of Chennai’s dark underbelly, for its use of real locations, real people and its consistent colloquial dialogue with cuss words aplenty.

Vetrimaaran has smartly crafted the film against the political landscape in Tamil Nadu during that era with the death of MGR, Rajiv Gandhi assassination and the ascendancy of Jayalalithaa to power. The film works for its multiple characters and a terrific set of actors who bring them alive on screen. Also Read - Akshay Kumar Presents ‘Atrangi Re’ Cast With a Musical Video- Watch
Vada Chennai is another feather on Vetrimaaran’s cap though not in the same league as his earlier films. The way he has built into the story, the rise of gangsters and thrown in political allegories is brutally honest. It also shows how politicians and the slum lords, in the name of development and welfare of the people, are similar in their opportunistic approach and selfish interests.
Vada Chennai’s budget is Rs 65 crores and therefore, it is likely that the film suffers huge losses due to its online leak.
