T.P Gajendran the short and stout character actor and comedian, occasionally directs movies with little known stars, but with a lot of humour, sentiments and masala. These movies are made on a shoe-string budget and strictly aimed at B & C audiences.

Added to that such movies like Gajendran's latest Seena Thaana 001, provide ample fodder for comedy shows on television channels. Gajendran makes good money selling the satellite rights of such movies, as almost the entire film can be cut into bits and packaged in various comedy shows!

This time T.P Gajendran has purchased the rights of Malayalam comic hero Dileep's C.I.D Moosa, added some local flavour, stirred it with the correct ingredients, added item number and has served it as piping hot masala fare! Remember Dileep and the original director has been inspired, from half-a-dozen comic hero Hollywood movies including "The Pink Panther" series.

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- Vadivel, Mannivannan, comic villain Riaz Khan and assorted 'terrorist' baddies who want to kill the governor, Visu. Sheila is there for the songs tuned by Deva.

Nothing, here to recommend. Go home and watch the scenes in comedy time.

Verdict: Slapstick
