By Rinku Gupta (Subscribe to CinemaSpeak for Video updates) Sathyajothi Films' Dhanush starrer Pattas is directed by Durai Senthil Kumar. Dhanush plays a local thief,  Pattas aka Sakthi who lives in a slum area, with Sadhana ( Mehreen Pirzada) as his neighbour. During one of his thefts he unwittingly earns the wrath of Nilan ( Naveen Chandra) , the owner of a martial arts academy.  He also discovers his real mother Kanyakumari ( Sneha) who is out from jail (due to a murder in the past). Through her, he comes to learn that he is the son of  Thiraviyam Perumal ( Dhanush in a dual role), a proud exponent of the Adimurai martial arts form, which is an ancient art, rooted in Tamil soil.

Does Pattas manage to reach his goal? Dhanush is in top form as the  older, agile and intense Adimurai exponent
