Movie ‘Chennaiyil Oru Naal’ is about how an accident in a traffic junction in Chennai changes lives of people.

September 16th changes the course of many people’s life. 

In the morning, an accident happens.  A youth who rides pillion in two-wheeler falls down, sustains injury on head and loses consciousness.  His father, a doctor, says that the youth is his only son and pleads with doctors to save his life. 

On the other hand, Prakash Raj’s 12 year old daughter urgently needs a heart.  Even after pressure from higher authorities, father of youth who met with accident says that he does not desire killing his son in haste.  At one point, he realises that there is no chance for his son to be saved. 

The dead youth’s father agrees to heart transplantation and a team of three rushes with the youth’s heart.

Cheran is the driver.  He does character who was once a policeman and had been suspended for receiving bribe.  Even his sister is angry with Cheran and does not speak to him.  Cheran remains courageous and hopes that the taint could be wiped off if he gets good name.  Another person is the one who rode the bike with the deceased.  The third person is a daughter. 

Sarathkumar does higher official who clears blocks enroute the travel.  The car which rushes at a great speed is suddenly not to be seen.  The climax is about what happens and whether the heart is taken for transplantation at the proper time. 

The main problem with remake movies is that, we always compare the remake with original.  It is very easy to say that the movie is not like the original. 

But the movie ‘Chennaiyil Oru Naal’ has been made very well and surpasses the original version in excellence.  The main reason is the casting. Sarathkumar, Cheran, Prasanna, Prakash Raj, and Radhika fit the characters in the movie and have done their roles very well. 

The movie is fully an emotional one.  The movie scenes progress such that every one among the audience realises the preciousness of life. 

For such movies, background music is more important than the numbers in the movie.  Music composer from Malayalam cine field, Mejo Josesph has realised the truth and done the music composition wonderfully.  The cinematography by Shehnad Jalal helps in speeding up the screenplay. 

For small role in the movie, they have made use of actor Suriya very well. As the movie nears the climax, Suriya places request regarding organ donation. 

There is no hero for the movie.  The movie’s story is the hero.  Performance by Sarathkumar, who does police officer, is wonderful.  The movie does not have unnecessary English dialogues.  Cheran, Prasanna, Jayaprakash, and Raadhika appear in the movie in relevant scenes. 

Let such movies pop at least once in a while and save Tamil cine field.

Taking everything into account, Chennaiyil Oru Naal is movie which should not be missed.
