VADA CHENNAI is a Tamil language crime drama in which a young man is drawn into a gang war.

Violence

People are struck with machetes or stabbed, resulting in spurts of blood and bloody wound detail. There is also occasional hand-to-hand fighting featuring kicks, punches, slaps and blows with heavy objects.

Drugs

Multiple scenes show cocaine and marijuana being smuggled into a prison. One sequence shows a man removing a packet of drugs from his rectum, without visual graphic detail.

A woman is ostracised and harassed after being caught kissing her boyfriend in a public setting. A partially naked couple are shown embracing on a makeshift bed, without visible nudity. There are also brief, mild verbal sex references in connection to a couple's forthcoming wedding night not being their 'first night'. Bad language includes 'slut', 'whore', 'pissed', 'bloody', 'crap' and 'ass'.
