Trailer Out Now: Dhanush Is A Martial Arts Exponent In ‘Pattas’

The trailer of actor Dhanush’s upcoming film Pattas co-starring Nenjil Thunivirundhal fame Mehreen Pirzada is out now. Helmed by RS Durai Senthilkumar, the film is being bankrolled by Sendhil Thyagarajan and Arjun Thyayagarajan under their Sathya Jyothi Films banner. Dhanush is collaborating with the director for the second time after the 2016 drama-thriller Kodi.

We find a stern and focused Dhanush, the master of a form of martial art in a village and another nonchalant, wacky Dhanush, his son of course, in the city. As the trailer progresses, we find the former’s wife Sneha having an obvious yet substantial role of wanting to take revenge along with her son while Mehreen, been relegated to a small role. The trailer has been edited in the trademark style of Anthony L Ruben (he’s only done the trailer edit) with match cuts of both the younger and elder Dhanush. To be honest though, the predictable revenge plot hardly piques interest.

Sathya Jyothi Films took to Twitter to launch the trailer.

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 in Times of India recently revealed that the title Pattas 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. Nasser and Munishkanth have also landed significant roles.


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.

It was earlier reported that the film might clash with director AR Murugadoss’Darbar starring actors Rajinikanth and Nayanthara in the lead roles but will now hit screens for Pongal 2020. The film is currently in post-production.

Recently, the film’s music album was launched at the Suryan FM radio station with six songs and one theme. The songs have been doing the rounds on social media.
