Actor Silambarasan was last seen on screens in the neo noir gangster movie Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu which hit the theaters under the direction of Gautham Vasudev Menon with actress Siddhi Idnani in the female lead role. The movie did not live up to the expectations of the audience, and fell flat in the box office. Actor Gautham Karthik had his last outing in the action flick Yutha Satham directed by Ezhil with actor Parthiban in the lead. The drama opened to negative reviews, and did a bad commercial business. Now, both the actors are gearing up for the release of their multi-starrer project titled Pathu Thala. The film is written and directed by Obeli N Krishna of Sillunu Oru Kaadhal fame. The drama which went on floors with a small pooja ceremony a long while back, is all set to release on 30th of March this year.
The production team had recently sent the movie to the censor board for certification. We have news that the censor board has cleared Pathu Thala with a U/A certificate. The production company themselves has announced the news. Taking to their official twitter handle, the production house shared an announcement video and wrote, “Pathu Thala censored with U/A. Thunderstorm arrives on March 30th.” Here is the tweet made by the production company.
