Simbu-Gautham Karthik starrer Pathu Thala first look out; AR Rahman to compose music!
As reported earlier, Simbu and Gautham Karthik are starring in the Tamil remake of blockbuster Kannada film ‘Mufti’. The remake version has been titled as ‘Pathu Thala’. Last day, the film’s first look poster got released online. Maestro AR Rahman shared the poster through his social media handle. Interestingly, he is also composing music for this film.
‘Mufti’ is a neo-noir action-thriller starring Shiva Rajkumar and Sriimurali as the leads. The Tamil remake first went on floors last year. Narthan, the director of the orginal, was supposed to helm the Tamil version as well. However, it got shelved at the initial stages itself after a tussle between the director and producer KR Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green. Simbu was also irregular in attending shoots. The team had then shot for only around 10 days.
‘Pathu Thala’ is now being directed by Obeli N Krishna of ‘Sillunu Oru Kaadhal’ and ‘Nedunchalai’ fame. He has also adapted the screenplay in a different style that might suit the sensibilities of the Tamil audience. RS Ramakrishnan is penning the dialogues. The cast includes Priya Bhavani Shankar, Manushyaputhran, Kalaiyarasan and ‘Asuran’ fame Teejay.
