Middling Gangster Drama Held Together By Silambarasan!

Pathu Thala ought to have been more focused for the emotions to have clicked. It lacks a consistent tension, but it works in parts, thanks to some large-scale action set pieces and theatre moments.(more)

STR and Gautham Karthik elevate this fairly-engaging gangster film

The intense performances of Silambarasan and Gautham Karthik make us overlook some of the logical mistakes made by the writer. Gautham, in particular, manages to look authentic as an undercover cop. Gautham Vasudev Menon's performance as the Deputy Chief Minister is commendable, and the technical as...(more)

Simbu's middling gangster drama takes a formulaic route

Simbu, as a dreaded gangster, delivered a top-notch performance as AGR. In the climax, he goes all guns blazing. It�s almost like he is dancing to the tune of AR Rahman. In short, it�s the devil�s dance. (PS: Devil is AGR�s code name among the police). Gautham Karthik has gotten one of the best role...(more)

'Pathu Thala' is a contrived action movie that's saved solely by Silambarasan

Silambarasan dominates the second half and single-handedly saves the movie� to an extent. He plays a "someone" character, too. His Raavanan is a randomly written grey-shaded character, with a random emotional angle with his sister, and random business interests. Even the references to the Kamba Rama...(more)

Pathu Thala is an engaging action film with great stunt choreography and performances. It sets a certain bar in the music and cinematography and never goes below it. It does justice to the original story without going overboard at any place. Had the pacing of the second half, and the screenplay in g...(more)

Silambarasan saves the timeworn gangster film

Despite all its shortcomings, Silambarasan and Gautham Karthik make the film bearable. In the first half of the film, director N Krishna only teases us with glimpses of AGR, and he finally makes his entry onscreen in the interval (something we saw in Vikram). All this while, Gautham Karthik manages ...(more)

Simbu's predictable but engaging gangster film works only because of him

Silambarasan, despite having a very limited screen time, really shines in a role that he strongly elevates just with his presence. The finale action sequence is one of the major highlights of the film and thanks to the way it�s shot and presented, it leaves the viewer exiting the cinema hall on a hi...(more)
