Chennai2Singapore is a Tamil-language romantic comedy film written and directed by Abbas Akbar, featuring Gokul Anand, Rajesh Balachandiran, Anju Kurian, Shiv Keshav, Emcee Jesz. The film was jointly produced by Media Development Authority of Singapore, Ghibran, Vrobal and MM2 Entertainment Pte Ltd and co-produced by Shabir. Chennai2Singapore is the first collaboration between the Tamil and Singaporean film industries.
The film is a comedy about a struggling Indian film maker, Harish, who makes his way to Singapore to look for investors to finance his dream movie. However, a series of misfortunes foils his plans and he also ends up losing his passport. At a loss, Harish meets Vaanambaadi, an eccentric Singaporean cameraman. With Vaanambaadi’s advice and help, Harish almost realises his dream. But then he meets a girl who is dying from cancer and gets swept up in a number of hilarious but serious situations. Without the cliched romance in Indian films, the story takes a light and humorous turn into a madcap journey about life, death and everything else.
