A movie with decent expectations and that’s a charm carried up with the first part that occurred nearly before 10 years and it’s not just an easy thing out here in the showbiz, especially with the Indian film industry, where rarely do such movies pop up. But never mind! Chennai 600028 Second Innings isn’t something that you would like to refer with the Hollywood’s Underworld and Avengers, but just simple, it comes on pars with Adam Sandler’s Grownups and it sequel. Hope now you would have made up your mind of what standards does it actually come up. Well, it’s a fun barring usual Adam Sandler stuffs and yes you can watch it along with your family for it doesn’t boast of any double entendres, profane or glamorous stuffs. The film is getting best on its genre and treatment with the same ingredients. Maybe in few places, you might not feel the same enthuse as in first part, but remember the boys are grownups now and so the hilarious drama is played accordingly, but with same appeal.

The tale is about the reunion of boys, who travel to Theni for attending the marriage of their buddy Raghu (Jai) and over there are urged by situations to play series of cricket matches.

“Venkat Prabhu makes sure of connecting the dots between both the parts”

One of the greatest highlights about this film is that Venkat Prabhu makes sure of connecting the dots between both the parts and that’s 20 minutes introduction that brings up the establishment of characterizations, including Sampath, who the voiceover of Venkat Prabhu says that he has now become busy as villain getting hit by Telugu heroes in movies.

On the front of performance, everyone has done a fair job, where you cannot incisively point out on one particular actor for their nuance performances. End of the show, it’s characterization that makes them perform well and we get see even the dumbest actors like Vaibhav and Mahat offer a perfect show. What’s more appealing with the film is the background score of Yuvan Shankar Raja, where he just leaves you in trance, but songs are slightest mediocre, where only ‘Soppana Sundari’ alone ‘Boys are Back’ stay up to your minds.

Not to miss the sequence, where the same politician who asked ‘Thambi Fielding a Bowling a’ in first part

The whole movies comprises of a screenplay that doesn’t disappoint you anywhere and it keeps proceeding with the amusements. Not to miss the sequence, where the same politician who asked ‘Thambi Fielding a Bowling a’ in first part promising 90 balls on his sponsorship for 15 over match. Yet another hilarious stroke is Mirchi Shiva’s online reviewer job, where you find ‘Kabali 2’, ‘Marudhanayagam’, Puli 5 thumbnail videos on the YouTube channel.

When it comes to marking the verdicts, it’s simple, just don’t expect anything much from the film as you were blank before watching first part and came out enjoying. Of course, the same magic with the same brand cannot be recreated as many would be dropped in for comparisons, but the sequel is pretty groovy.
