The boys are back. Venkat Prabhu with his team is returning with Chennai 600028 II: 2nd Innings, which is releasing in India on 9 December. Mirchi Siva, Nithin Sathya, Jai, Akash Arvind, Vijay Vasanth, Vijayalakshmi and Premgi and others are in the key roles in the flick.
Rajesh Yadav has handled the cinematography and Praveen KL has edited the movie, which is a sequel to 2007 hit film Chennai 600028. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed the music for the Venkat Prabhu-directorial and Nee Kidaithai, Soppana Sundari and ‘Boys Are Back’ songs from the movie have garnered good reviews.
The first instalment was an unexpected hit that became a dream directorial debut for Venkat Prabhu. The movie had focussed on street cricket and blended the coming-of-age sports film with friendship and rivalry. In Chennai 600028 II: 2nd Innings, many of the key characters are married, but now they reunite in a demanding situation. The cricket matches, like in the first instalment, are not being played in Chennai, but in a rural place outside the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
