Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 movie review: This Sarathkumar film is nowhere close to its prequel

Everything about Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 screams half-heartedness. Does a normal smoking scene need a slow motion? Like what? Munishkanth, a constable, pops up and says that Pandian (Sarathkumar) knows lip-reading. After a sec, Pandian (who seems to have momentarily forgotten his skill set) has an epiphany and says he’ll do it himself. Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 movie director: JPR
Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 movie rating: 1 star
Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 opens with an interesting poster. With an already slow screenplay, the excessive use of slow-motion further dampens the pace. And also, the name Angel gets another spelling ‘Anjel’. For example, take an interrogation scene of Sarathkumar. Another such example is a conversation between Munishkanth and another policeman. The usage isn’t warranted as well. He takes a statement from a woman struggling to speak in the ICU. Chennaiyil Oru Naal was a race against time. ‘Angel in saavu indra naalaiya?’ (Will Angel die today or tomorrow?) You get curious about the story behind the creepy looking poster, for about 5 minutes. Sarathkumar, Napoleon, Ajay, Ramdoss. The dialogues of the movie also feel heavily contrived. But it’s all downhill from there. Video of the day

Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 movie review. However, its sequel fails desperately to keep up the pace or the time. The doctor suggests bringing a lip-reader. Pandian leaves the room asking Munishkanth to get details from the other policeman. Related News

The film meanders through each plot point without much clarity. Watch Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2 movie trailer here:

The camera lingers in the room for a second longer and we see Munishkanth saying ‘The case is very confusing’ with an awkward pause before we cut back to Sarathkumar. (Again, what?)
The film is shoddily shot that gives an amateurish effect. Rather we end up racing out of the theater. As the clock ticked, suspense intensified.
