Recently, a wacky first look poster featuring Dhanush was released right after the title was revealed. Dhanush will be essaying the dual role of father and son, with the former romancing actress Sneha and the latter, Mehreen. Dhanush and Sneha will be seen together again after 13 years. The last time was the cult classic Pudhupettai helmed by director Selvaraghavan.
A report on Times of India recently revealed that the title refers to the actor’s character’s name. It also added that the film will revolve around a form of martial art practiced by the Chozhas, way before kalari, along with commercial elements. Dhanush reportedly underwent training for the same.
Actor Naveen Chandra who received appreciation for his role in the recent Telugu crime-thriller Evaru and Vijay TV’s Kalakka Povadhu Yaaru fame Sathish have been roped in for important roles. Naveen celebrated his birthday with the team last evening on the sets of Pattas.

Cinematographer Om Prakash is handling the camera, Prakash Mabbu is on the edit, Vivek Shiva and Mervin J Solomon are composing music with G Durairaj helming art. Dhilip Subbarayan has choreographed the action sequences with Jaani choreographing dance.
The film is slated for release for Pongal 2020 and will reportedly clash with director AR Murugadoss‘s Darbar starring actors Rajinikanth and Nayanthara in the lead roles. Earlier this year, Ajith starrer Viswasam and Rajinikanth starrer Petta were also seen competing for a Pongal release with both faring well in the box office.
Here is the first look poster of Pattas.
Recently, the film’s first single ‘Chill Bro’ dropped, garnering over 2 million views. The fast-paced peppy number was rendered by Dhanush himself. Its lyrics comprised jargon from the popular multiplayer game ‘PUBG’.
