Pattas Movie Review
A proper festive entertainer!
Story & Narration
Technical Aspects & Music
From time to time, Dhanush takes a break from his heavy performance-oriented outings and hits the deck with a commercial entertainer that gives him a little bit of everything to do. Pattas is exactly that film, and it comes from director Durai Senthilkumar who made a good mark with his Kodi.
Pattas has Dhanush playing dual roles, with the younger one introduced to us first as a happy-go-lucky ‘pullingo’ who has a very young and energetic role to don. The story gets thicker as we are introduced to the elder Dhanush and his wife Sneha, who practice a specific kind of martial arts form in the past. The story then traverses a common path, with the enemies needing some stick from the younger Dhanush to go back home. The film starts off with a very happy and ‘chill’ note, with Dhanush’s jolly mannerisms but then moves to the stronger part with the entrance of Sneha’s strong role which is easily the best thing about the film. The interval block gives us the high that we require, and that works out superbly for the film. The second half is where the core lies, and that progresses in an entertaining fashion until the climax which is a lengthy one which should have been cut down.
Pattas’ biggest advantage lies in the form of how the pairing of Dhanush and Sneha come together, with a powerful portion to their name. Durai Senthilkumar has done the trick when it comes to making an impact with the flashback, which is indeed the heart of the film.
Both Dhanush and Sneha have interesting roles to carry out, and they expectedly bring in their best to the fore, even though it is just a commercial outing. Especially, Sneha has a vital role to play and pulls off the surprises in style.
While Mehreen Pirzada and Naveen Chandra have very plastic roles, KPY Sathish has a lot of entertaining one-liners that chuckle the audiences successfully.
The cinematography is particularly good in the song sequences, with a special mention to Chill Bro which is a knockout. Vivek – Merwin’s music is one of the film’s highlight, with both their excellent songs and background scores upping the ante right from the start to the finish.
On the whole, Pattas is an entertainer that gets it fair and square, doing its job in the fair proportions. Yes, it is predictable and lacks excitement on a full-time basis, but there is enough fizz in it to keep going until the end. Durai Senthilkumar once again manages to deliver a watchable, engaging film. Pattas Movie Review by Only Kollywood
