Prime Video announced the global streaming premiere of Tamil action-crime drama Pathu Thala, starring the much-loved Tamil actor Silambarasan TR. Directed by Obeli N. Krishna and produced by Jayantilal Gada along with K. E. Gnanavelraja.
The film also stars Gautham Karthik, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Gautham Vasudev Menon and Santhosh Pratap in pivotal roles. Pathu Thala will exclusively premiere in India and across 240 countries and territories worldwide on April 27 in Tamil. Pathu Thala is the latest addition to the Prime membership.
An official adaptation of the hit Kannada film – Mufit, Pathu Thala turned into not just a box-office hit but also garnered raving reviews for the powerful performances, and AR Rahman’s music, that greatly augments the storyline. Centered on the investigation into the mysterious disappearance of Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister (Santhosh Pratap), diligent police officer Shakthivel (Gautham Karthik) is tasked to find the missing leader, and investigate the case.
When his inquiry leads him to the notorious gangster – AG Raavanan (Silambarasan TR), he’s unable to gather evidence, as AGR is beyond reproach, due to his stronghold in the sand-mining industry, making him nearly untouchable. To solve this case, Shakthivel decides to go undercover, and steadily makes his way into the trusted circle of AGR. But the shocking revelations that he unveils along the way shakes his very resolve, making him question everything he knows.
Director Obeli N. Krishna said, “Despite being an adaptation, Pathu Thala is very different from the original. With characters as complex as our protagonists, Silambarasan TR and Gautham Karthik have played their parts brilliantly, which made my job as a filmmaker that much easier. While the storyline is engrossing, it’s the characters that keep you hooked till the very end. Just like Ravana, they’re not all bad, but have shades of morality, a facet still redeemable which makes them even more captivating to the audience. And I can’t wait for the film to reach even more people, as they enjoy the riveting performances, once it premieres on Prime Video India.”
