Vanakkam Chennai (English: Greetings Chennai) is an Indian Tamil comedy film written and directed by debutant Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi.  Produced by her husband Udhayanidhi Stalin under the banner Red Giant Movies, the film features Shiva and Priya Anand in the lead roles.  It received \'U\' certificate from Central Board of Film Certification.  Upon release, the film received positive to mixed reviews from critics.

Ajay (Mirchi Shiva), an educated youth comes to Chennai from his hometown Theni to take up a job. Anjali (Priya Anand), a photographer from London is also in the city to capture the south Indian culture.

They both get cheated by Narayanan (Santhanam), a house agent, who rents out unoccupied houses without the knowledge of the owners. Ajay and Anjali pay the money to Naryanan and end up getting the same house. They both are caught in a situation when they are unable to rent a new house. The duo decides to stay together until they find Narayanan. Initially they fight a lot but later fall in love.

Priya Anand with Shiva roped in as the hero.  Santhanam will appear in a crucial segment in the second half. The film\'s principal photography officially began on February 1, 2013 at ECR, Chennai.  The director also started working with an environmentalist Abdul to set up a system on the set to educate everyone on environment friendly projects.  The film will be released in Dolby Atmos.

Responding to criticism that the film is a blatant copy of 1955 movie Missamma, Kiruthiga denied them as rumours.
