CHENNAI: Comedy films have become rare these days. The trend is towards thriller and romance. Midvalley Entertainment has come out with a full-fledged comedy that has all the elements to make it a perfect entertainer.
According to director T.P. Gajendran, ‘Cheena Thana 001’ will make the audience laugh to their hearts’ content. There are three lead characters in the film — Prasanna, Sheila and Vadivel.
The plot of the film revolves around the three main characters. Prasanna wants to join the police force.
But his relative Manivannan is against it, as he does not want any other person in the family to join the force. Sheila, who according to Prasanna does not know Tamil, is actually well versed in the language. This leads to several hilarious situations.
Sheila has acted in a few films, including “Nanda”, as a child artist.
Vadivel plays a thief, who is the friend of Prasanna.
Visu, Livingstone, Ilavarasu and Delhi Ganesh contribute their share of humour. Director Gajendran is also doing an important role in the film. There is a dog that helps the hero. New find Simran Khan is doing an item number.
The five songs in the film have been shot at different places — Kerala, Chalakudi and Nellaiyampathi.
The music is scored by Deva and camera is handled by Rajarajan. The story, screenplay and direction are by T.P. Gajendran.
