Chennaiyil Oru Naal Story

Chennaiyil Oru Naal tamil movie remake of Malayalam Traffic movie. It is based on a real life event which took place in Chennai and will have multiple threads that will converge towards the climax.

Sarath Kumar, Prakash Raj, Radhika, Prasanna and Remya Nambeesan are the lead roles. The director Rajesh Pillai is direct of the movie and then produced by Radhika Sarath Kumar and Listin Stephen.

As a regular Tamil cinema viewer, I found Chennaiyil Oru Naal (CON) not brilliant, but far, far better than the usual, run-of-the-mill commercial Tamil film. It takes guts to even attempt to make such a film in these times when every second film is either a love story or a revenge-drama. The film may be another racy thriller where all characters race against time, but it scores high on deft presentation and emphasis on the importance of organ donation. 

Except for one major flaw featuring a leading actor in a cameo, CON stands apart as a film to look forward to. Based on the Malayalam film Traffic, CON intertwines the lives of certain characters and connects them through one common incident. In Vellore, the 13-year-old daughter of actor Gautham Krishna, named Ria, is in need of a heart transplant.

Her condition is deteriorating with every passing minute even as the multi-millionaire father is ready to pay any price for a heart. Meanwhile, in Chennai, Karthik, a TV show host-cum-journalist, on his first day to work is knocked down at traffic signal by a speeding car.
