Film Review : Pathu Thala

 The much awaited STR starrer Pathu Thala, a comeback film of director Obeli N Krishna, produced by Studio Green, hits screens on March 30th.  The film also stars Gautham Karthik, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Anu Sithara Kalayarasan and Priya Bhavani Shankar with Madhu Guruswamy of Kannada cinema playing Singha, from the original Kannada film, Mufti. When the TN CM ( Santhosh Prathap in a convincing cameo) goes missing,  an undercover cop Sakthivel ( Gautham Karthik) is on the hunt for dreaded don of the sand mining mafia in the deep South, AGR ( STR), and manages to enter his stronghold as Guna. But as he discovers more about him,  Guna's impression starts changing. What happens, to the mission he is on? What is the link between the missing CM, the deputy CM (Gautham Menon) and AGR?  The action drama moves as a steady pace, keeping you rivetted. The grand locations , the scenic vistas of the coastal areas and the gripping night sequences on the highway are all well captured by cameraman
