With a number of newbies, 'Pattathari' fails to captivate the audience.
What is the reason beyond his reluctance towards womenfolk and the aftermath form the crux of the movie.
Having done few films earlier, actor Abi Saravanan has shown improvement in his acting skills sans few shots where he looks really artificial. Adhiti and Raashika have shared the screen space as the female leads. Among these artists, Raashika has been given priority and the actress has made good efforts. Adhiti has given a neat performance.
Though not up to the mark, the newbie actors are okay with a special mention made about Ambani Shankar. Mahanadhi Shankar proves his experience while portraying the police character. Director Shankar Pandi has tried to narrate a regular story with a different tone but the poor choice of the screenplay fails to make it effective. Lack of good comedy and interesting sequences play the spoil sport along with the movie traveling in an anticipated path.
S.S.Kumaran's music adds a big plus to the film. He scores good by making both the songs and the BGMs sound great with his compositions. Cinematographer Sooriyan also shares the credit for his excellent camera works.
Summing up, Pattathari trails behind with poor marks.
