After the success of the critically acclaimed Maanaadu, directed by Venkat Prabhu, Silambarasan TR is on track for his next film, Pathu Thala. The action drama movie is to be directed by Obeli N Krishna of Sillunu Oru Kadhal and Nedunchaalai fame under the production of KE Gnanavel Raja’s Studio Green banner. Praveen KL, the editor of Maanaadu was recently reeled in to be the editor of this flick as well. Obeli N Krishna too expressed his happiness about working with Praveen again as the duo previously worked on the Telugu film ‘Hippi’, three years ago.

Pathu Thala will feature Simbu as a gangster, Gautham Karthik as a cop and Priya Bhavani Shankar as his love interest with Asuran fame Teejay Arunasalam and Kalaiyarasan playing prominent roles. A.R. Rahman has been roped in to score the music and background score for this Simbu-starrer. This is the fifth time he is working on a project starring Simbu after Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam and the upcoming Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu. It goes without saying that all these movies had some great songs and so we cannot wait to see Rahman work his magic on this one as well.

Pathu Thala is the Tamil remake of the Kannada neo-noir action thriller film ‘Mufti’ directed by Narthan which starred Shiva Rajkumar and Sri Murali in lead roles. Meanwhile, Simbu’s birthday is coming up on 3rd February 2022 and the fans are going to witness some sort of a surprise release from the team of Pathu Thala.

Earlier this morning, the makers posted a tweet, announcing that there will be a special release from Pathu Thala on February 3, marking STR's birthday. It may be the first look, motion poster, a teaser, song or something – you never know. Only time will tell. Let’s just wait and hope for the best. Apart from this, Simbu has films like Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu by Gautham Vasudev Menon, Corona Kumar by Gokul and Maha by U.R. Jameel.
