Thirukumaran Entertainment's 144 is against a different film from their stable. As promised by the team, it is a laugh riot that begins at quick pace, goes in full throttle only to take a break towards the latter part.

But the intention is to provide a mindless and logic less masala fare and the team succeeds in it.It is about two villages Erimalaikundu and Poomalaikundu. They have some problems and section 144 ( Thadai Utharavu) is put during festive days every year during festive season.

At one such instance, a group of burglars hatch a conspiracy and try to literally steal the show. That forms the crux.Mirchi Shiva as petty theif, Ashok Selvan in a rural role with the likes of Oviya, Sruthi Ramakrishna and Mundasupatti Ramadas manage to evoke unlimited laughter.Shiva without any overdo pulls it off.

He utters dialogues at ease and his one-liners are infectious and makes you laugh out loud. Ashok Selvan is a reveleation in the role. He pours out right emotions and comedy comes good for him.Oviya and sruthi Ramakrishna have little to do but delivers it well.

Ramadas geta  bulk share and does full justice to the role.Director Manikandan's script has some interesting twists and turns  which are loaded with comedy and the execution is good.Sean Roldon's songs are good while background score towards the second half is good.

Gopi Anand's artwork recreates colourful villages while cinematographer Gurunath captures the innocence of village in bright colours. Editor Leo John Paul's scissors does a good job. The filmmaker has dished out an unbiased engaging affair.

Thanks to C V Kumar, who produces new and innovative ideas on screen, deserves a pat for sponsoring 144 .A laugh riot but lacks finesse.
