Chennai Palani Mars is a Tamil stoner film starring Praveen Raja, A Ravikumar and Rajesh Giriprasad in the lead. The movie opened with poor reviews upon its release theatrically on July 26th, 2019.
Aakash (Praveen Raja) is an astrophysicist who is perennially frustrated due to his father’s failed attempt at reaching Mars. He thinks that human mind travels faster than light and sound and should be able to reach Mars with the right effort. Aakash becomes a druggie through his many attempts.
After a point, Aakash is sent to a de-addiction centre where he meets another guy Aandava Perumal. They come out of it and start a journey, which is what the title Chennai Palani Mars suggest.
The movie comes in the director and writer combination of Biju Vishwanath and Vijay Sethupathi. They have in the past come together for a similar experimental flick named Orange Mithhai. It was incidentally the first production of Vijay Sethupathi. Chennai Palani Mars is the second one after a gap from the actor on Vijay Sethupathi productions banner. Niranjan Babu provides the music for the uniquely themed and made movie.
