Director Boopathy Pandian is known for his successful films like Devathayai Kanden, Thiruvilaiyaadal Aarambam & Malaikottai. But his last film Kaadhal Solla Vandhen was a blig flop at the box office. Pattathu Yaanai is the second film of Hit Jodi Boopahy Pandian-Vishal after the successful Malaikottai in 2007. Pattathu Yaanai is the debut film of Aishwarya Arjun, daughter of action superstar Arjun. Pattathu Yaanai also stars Santhanam & Murali Sharma


Pattathu Yaanai story is about the catering service group held in the name of Punkavanam managed by Santhanam. Santhanam and Vishal used to go for catering service to different places. Vishal says an idea to Santhanam that instead of moving to different places & they can open a grand hotel and can become a rich business man. The idea holds Santhanam and they start to moving towards Karaikudi to Trichy. There they faces some problems and how they solve those problems???

Pattathu Yaanai has its share of plusses and minuses


The main positive of Pattathu Yaanai is One & Only Santhanam. The film belongs to Santhanam from Scene A to Z. The actor is at his best yet again and delivers a towering performance. If Santhanam stole the thunder in recently released Singham 2, he walks away with accolades yet again in Pattathu Yaanai. No two opinions on that. Such a terrific actor with unbeatable comic timing!
Vishal's acting is good although he goes over-the-top in the first half & at action sequences. But his acting in the second half is quite good. Debutant Aishwarya Arjun is photogenic, acts very well and most importantly looks the character of a plus two girl.
Karthik Sabesh & Jagan as Vishal's friends are good. Karthik Sabesh's comic timing with Santhanam provides maximum laughs. John Vijay is ok. Direction of Boopahy Pandian is good, still not at par with his work in Malaikottai.


Like I mentioned above, Pattathu Yaanai has its share of plusses and minuses. And the main minus is it's poor music by Thaman. All the songs are very ordinary and the situation placement of the songs are horribly wrong. The film starts off well, but the story comes to an ordinary stuff in the second half. The flashback portions of Vishal were ordinary. Murali Sharma is overacted. Some comedy scenes just after emotional scenes were unwanted.
Overall a good first half and an average second half, That's Pattathu Yaanai for you ! At the box office, film can be a decent success all thanks to Santhanam's comedy, Vishal's acting and film's masala theme.

P:S: One Time Watchable!

Verdict - Pattathu Yaanai is Santhanam's!!!

Rating - 2.75/5! Average !!! This Reviewer can be contacted on Twitter : @i_spn :
