Pattas Movie Review
|Director||R.S. Durai Senthilkumar|
|Written by||R.S. Durai Senthilkumar|
|Production company||Sathya Jyothi Films|
|Running Time||142 mins|
Following ‘Kodi’, both filmmaker Durai Senthilkumar and Dhanush have teamed up for ‘Pattas’. With the title and the visual promos along with songs assuring that it’s going to be a family entertainer for the festive occasion of Pongal, let us check out how far the film really lives up to the expectations.
Dhanush is seen as Sakthi aka Pattas, a petty thief raised by Munishkanth. He comes to know that his biological parents have been the great masters of martial arts in Tamil Nadu, which they imparted to others with passion. However, his father’s gruesome death and mother’s painful life can be redeemed only through the Sakthi’s efforts.
Dhanush is always at his best when it comes to performing both the fun-filled and exceptionally offbeat roles. It’s so much surprising to see that he has maintained the same physique as in his initial days of career and he is so youthful. On the other hand, the matured role of father is outstanding and he has does with uttermost dedication. Sneha gives a commendable performance nothing would have been a best comeback for the artiste than this film. In fact, she is the only one in the entire industry of Tamil cinema to have found a better comeback rather than merely appearing as fancied character. Naveen Chandra looks befittingly perfect for the role of baddie and his physique is extraordinary. Mehreen Pirzada is just okay and we can’t still find the exact reason for what purpose she has been greatly celebrated in Telugu cinema. KPY Satish annoys you to the core after certain extent and Munishkanth has nothing to perform.
Story, Screenplay and direction:
A big disappointment from Durai Senthilkumar! This might look a little shocking one, but that’s the fact. The way he manages to merge the characters together was very well noticed and appreciated in Ethir Neechal. He does it in a perfect way through the intermission scene here, but the narrative part is so much predictable that we start losing the interest. Of course, there’s nothing wrong in writing a predictable story, but it would have been better with an engaging screenplay.
Om Prakash has done a decent job with his cinematography. Editing is perfectly done. Couple of songs by Vivek-Mervin is appreciable, but they can furthermore enhance their ability in background score as they have potentials to do it.
Overall, Pattas with the run-off-the-mill storyline and very plain and unsurprising screenplay might have a favourable run for these Pongal holidays, but it’s a huge disappointment.
