There is a new team with S.P.B Charan and Venkat Prabhu that has emerged in Kollywood and it has come out with a wholesome, entertaining film for the viewers. It is none other than Chennai -600028, a film reflecting the pulse of the youth. There are no popular faces, punch dialogues, or colourful foreign locations in the film. But Venkat has proved that they are not necessary for a good film like Chennai-600028 (pincode of Mandaveli area). The entire movie is centered around the Galli cricket (street cricket) and a tournament final between two rival teams. Apart from cricket there is enough space for love, friendship, sentiments and decent comedy in the script.

Raja Annamalaipuram Sharks and Royapuram Rockers are the two teams who always fight for supremacy in the game in their area. The field enmity continues in their real life too. Raghu (Jai, son of Music Director Deva) is the star bowler in the Rockers team and he later shifts his house to the stronghold of the Sharks R.A.Puram. As the Shark members tease Raghu in the initial stage, he finds it is very difficult to adjust in the area. But the love between Selvi (Vijayalakshmi, daughter of Agathiyan) and Karthik, the captain of Shark, brings him closer to the Shark team. Finally, Raghu decides to play for Sharks and in the process incurs the wrath of the Rockers.

In the mean time, Radio Mirchi announces Mirchi Cup tournament for Galley cricket teams in which Rockers and sharks meet in the semifinal. The climax is interesting and speedier than a real international one day match. The love innings of Arvind, the star batsman in Shark, with Christine Zedak is a separate story and the viewers get embarassed with their steamy bed scenes in an ECR farm house.
