Pattas Review

Every once in a while, our Tamil filmmakers stumble upon a forgotten or dying ancient art form and come up with a film glorifying it and bringing it to public consciousness – even if for a brief while. With Pattas, Durai Senthilkumar wants to do for Adimurai, a less heard of traditional martial art form from Tamil Nadu, what Indian did for Varmakalai and 7aum Arivu did for Bodhi Dharman. But the problem is he seems to have been carried away by the novelty of Adimurai, and gives us a formulaic action drama that is predictable from start to finish. Forget plot structure and scenes, even the lines here hold no surprise.

The film begins in 2001 with a woman, Kanyakumari (Sneha, solid), being sent to prison for murder. The action then cuts to the present where Shakthi alias Pattas (Dhanush, earnest) is leading a happy-go-lucky life that involves some small-time thievery and playful retaliation against Sadhana (Mehreen Pirzada), the pompous neighbourhood girl. The latter makes him steal from her workplace, a mixed martial arts academy run by Nilan (Naveen Chandra, ineffective). But little does he realise that he has a history with Nilan, until he meets Kanyakumari, his long-last mother, who wants him to avenge the murder of his father, Thiraviyam (Dhanush, again) and bring glory to Adimurai, the ancient martial arts form that he practised.

It is these portions featuring Thiraviyam that are the saving grace of Pattas. This flashback is filled with drama, but surprisingly, rather than flesh out this segment, detailing the tragic turn of the friendship between Thiraviyam and Nilan, and the latter’s strained relationship with his father, an Adimurai guru played by Nasser, Durai Senthilkumar’s writing is content with dealing in broad strokes that these scenes are only half as impactful emotionally as they should have been, and feel rushed. But there is an inherent rousing quality to them, amplified by Vivek-Marvin’s punchy score.

On the other hand, the director spends too much time on the Pattas-Sadhana track, which isn’t as funny as he wants it to be. There is no chemistry between the two leads, with Mehreen’s performance lifeless and Dhanush’s youthful antics coming across as juvenile. And even the portions that follow the film’s big revelation lack impact. Even the drama that we associate with the sports film genre is lacking in the MMA contest scenes, with Pattas made to take on lacklustre opponents. After the strong show in Kodi, it is a surprise that Durai Senthilkumar has gone to his middling Kaaki Sattai form and given us this Pattas with no bang.

Big Brother Malayalam Movie Review

Director Siddique’s movies that have worked have always had an equal mix of humour, action and sentiments. In his latest film, however, the director, who has also scripted the film has dropped the humour element in favour of more action and a patience-testing plot to pass off as a thriller.

The movie’s protagonist 40-year-old Sachidanandan (Mohanlal) is just released from prison after serving a double life sentence for killing a police officer at a juvenile home. His family, however, welcomes him with open arms and within the first 30 minutes, he reveals to them that he wasn’t just serving time the past 24 years. To up the suspense quotient, Siddique has also given his protagonist a special skill that aids him in the film’s multiple action scenes that include two in the dark and one smack in the middle of a dustbowl. Sachidanandan’s past, however, soon catches up to him and his family, and forcing him to return to the ways he didn’t want to. In the middle of all this is a police officer Vedantham IPS (Arbaaz Khan) who is on the hunt for an elusive drug boss Edwin Moses. How Sachidanandan’s, Vedantham’s and Moses’ paths cross is what the film is about, but Siddique opts to use so many tropes and misdirection techniques to get there that by the end of it, the audience could hardly care who Moses is and what his ultimate aim is.

Mohanlal as Sachidanandan is dour-faced for most of the film, except for the comic scenes where he tries to observe the niceties after his life in prison. In fact, more of these scenes could have elevated the film. Arbaaz as Vedantham IPS has a powerful presence but is underused. His parallel story seems to get lost in the mess that Sachidanandan and friends get entangled in, and the police officer becomes an apologetic footnote, at best.

Big Brother Rating

Big Brother Rating

The film’s leading ladies Mirnaa, Honey Rose and Gadha do their parts well in what limited scenes they have. Anoop Menon and Sarjano Khalid as Sachidanandan’s brothers Vishnu and Manu, respectively, perform decently. The comedy track from Vishnu Unnikrishnan, Tini Tom and Irshad fall flat, however. Deepak Dev’s songs in the film add a bit of energy that the film, which is 164 minutes long, desperately needed. If Siddique could have kept the run-time in check and maybe stopped short of building Sachidanandan as a superhero, the movie could have passed as a decent watch.
