E. Gnanavelraja's Studio Green banner, post-production works are currently underway in full swing for the upcoming gangster drama film, which also features music by Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman. Being presented by Dr. Jayantilal Gada's Pen Studios Ltd, Pathu Thala marks the fourth occasion A. R. Rahman has boarded a Simbu film after Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada, and Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu Part I: The Kindling and there are massive expectations for the iconic music director to deliver yet another chart-buster album for the flamboyant star.
