Cheena Thaana 001 is a 2007 Tamil action comedy film starring Prasanna and Sheela. It's a remake of the 2003 Malayalam action-comedy film, C.I.D. Moosa.

Plot[edit]

Thamizharasu (Prasanna) wants to become a cop, but the arrogant police officers Inspector Parameshwaran (Manivannan) and AC Gowrishankar (Riyaz Khan) ensure that he does not succeed. Meanwhile, he discovers a plot to assassinate the Governor (Visu) by the terrorist Gulshan Baba (Kazan Khan), and he complains it to Gowrishankar, but discovers that he is also a member of the plot. So he forms a detective agency and starts cracking the plot, and how he succeeds in it with the help of his father (Delhi Ganesh), his father's Friend (Ilavarasu) and, of course, with the Cheenichamy (Vadivelu), forms the rest of the story.

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

The movie received mixed to positive reviews from critics

Indiaglitz wrote, "Prasanna after a series of serious portrayals in his earlier films opts for a laugh-riot role. He is at his best in comedy and stunt sequences. However walking away with all honors is Vadivelu. Playing Prasanna's close aide, he brings the roof down with laughter. His body language and dialogue delivery provides instant laughter."[1]

Behindwoods wrote, "Prasanna has come up with a good performance. Vadivelu and his team guarantee the audience with clean comedy and he rocks as always. The sequences where he encounters a mottai need to be seen to be enjoyed. Visu who comes as a Governor delivers a few orders which are certainly rib ticklers of the highest order. Songs are just average. Many scenes from Seena Thaana are guaranteed to find themselves in the comedy programs of television."[2]

Sify wrote, "The humour here is the "Tom & Jerry", one-man- upmanship type. Prasanna wants to become a cop, but the comedians are determined that he does not get selected. So it becomes a merry-go-round of our hero Vs team of comedians- Vadivelu, Mannivannan, comic villain Riaz Khan and assorted 'terrorist' baddies who want to kill the governor, Visu. Sheela is there for the songs tuned by Deva."[3]

Bharatstudent.com wrote, "Prasanna excels both in the action scenes as well as comedy scenes. His comedy timing is also good. Vadivelu literally steals the show with his comedy. Sheela has a brief role. She acts in a couple of songs and then disappears. Visu, Riyaz Khan, Kasan Khan, Ilavarasu, Delhi Ganesh and others go about their jobs in a neat manner. Deva's music is good. The film is a good entertainer and can be enjoyed by both adults and children alike.".[4]

Box office[edit]

The movie performed moderately well at the box-office.
