The buzz for Pathu Thala shot up after an action-packed trailer was released last week at the film's audio launch ceremony held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium. The music is another major USP and A. R. Rahman has once again delivered an interesting album, which has climbed to the top of the charts in quick time since its release. Fans also got to witness STR's new transformation at the grand audio release event, who left everyone stunned with his powerful speech and a surprise dance performance. Pathu Thala is inspired from the 2017 Kannada blockbuster Mufti starring Dr. Shivarajkumar and Srimurali, with Silambarasan and Gautham Karthik portraying their roles as a don and an undercover police officer in the Tamil version.
Apart from STR and Gautham Karthik, Pathu Thala has an ensemble cast featuring the likes of Priya Bhavani Shankar playing the role of a Tehsildar, while Gautham Menon is the antagonist, with Kalaiyarasan, Teejay Arunasalam, Redin Kingsley, Anu Sithara, Manushyaputhiran among others cast in key roles. Simbu will hoping for Pathu Thala to hit the bullseye considering his last two films, Maanaadu (2021) and Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu Part I: The Kindling (2022), turned out to be phenomenal box office successes, while also garnering massive critical acclaim.
