After the success of “Maanaadu” and “Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu,” Silambarasan’s newest film, “Pathu Thala,” premiered on March 30. Starring Gautham Karthik, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Teejay Arunasalamm, Kalaiyarasan, and Anu Sithara, the movie is directed by Obeli. N. Krishna.
Twitter users’ reactions to the film’s adaptation of the Kannada neo-noir action thriller Mufti from 2017 have been mixed. Others criticized the film’s logic and politics, while admirers lauded stars like Silambarasan and Gautham Karthik for their energy, charisma, and intensity on screen.
According to tweets about the movie, the film’s first half builds dramatically before the interval, when Silambarasan makes his shocking entrance. The film is greatly improved by the score by AR Rahman. Krishna, the film’s director, has packed the movie with twists, and the Tamil remake he adapted it for has been a hit.
A review states that the fundamental issue with Pathu Thala is the film’s ridiculous logic and politics. Because if AGR didn’t mine sand and engage in violence, someone else would. The review argues that the concept of a vigilante hero, who resolves the problems of an entire state and nation, is a shallow one that has been overused by Tamil cinema for decades. The film has a lot of problems, but it’s still enjoyable.
Pathu Thala has received polarizing reviews from audiences, with some calling it a blockbuster while others question the film’s incoherence.
