The romantic comedy, set predominantly in Singapore, revolves around an aspiring filmmaker from Chennai who makes his way to the Lion City in search of better prospects. The protagonist meets his love interest, also originally from Chennai, and their destiny summons them to an enthralling journey! Their emotional yet whacky ride in Singapore serves as the crux of the story.
The film, partially funded and supported by the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), is slated to be the first Singaporean-made feature film to be theatrically released into the Indian market, with musical scores by one of the acclaimed music composers in the Indian film music industry, M Ghibran. The film’s Audio Launch was uniquely designed into an Audio Drive – where each song number was released on YouTube at each border, from Chennai to Singapore, crossing Bhutan, Myanmar, Thailand and Malaysia!
The historic Audio Drive flag-off event in August 2016 at Sathyam Theatres Chennai was graced by popular Kollywood actor Suriya! The event garnered an outstanding media presence and wide publicity for the film and its prolific efforts to release each single. The first song that was released in Chennai, “Vaadi Vaadi” topped the charts on popular radio station, Radio Mirchi, for over a week in August 2016, and went on to top the weekly charts on other stations such as Big FM, Radio City and Suryan FM! The vibrant song also took the top spot for overall airplays across Chennai’s FMs in September 2016. The complete soundtrack of Chennai 2 Singapore claimed an impressive 1st spot on iTunes All India Music Store due to its snazzy city-styled numbers, and Apple Music chose “Vaadi Vaadi” as its best song of the week in September 2016!
