The shooting of Pathu Thala has been going on for a while. The Silambarasan-starrer was supposed to hit the screens in December. But the makers clarified recently that the project is expected to arrive only around March 2023. The Obeli N Krishna directorial also stars Gautham Karthik and Priya Bhavani Shankar in lead roles.
The movie has evoked curiousity of film lovers ever since it was announced as it is based on the Kannada hit film Mufti. AR Rahman coming on board further elevated its hype. A couple of promo videos unveiled by makers were more than enough for fans to wait for the film.
Now, trusted sources say that Amazon Prime Video has bagged the movie's post-theatrical digital rights for around 25 crores. This is huge considering the film is a remake. The star's previous outing, Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, too, was bagged by Amazon Prime, and dropped on the platform after a month of its theatrical release.
Gautham Karthik and Obeli had recently shared a picture of Silambarasan from Pathu Thala's location, leaving the star's fans elated. Farook J Basha and Praveen KL have handled cinematography and editing respectively for the movie which has dance choreography helmed by Sandy.
R Sakthi Saravanan and RS Ramakrishnan have composed action choreography and penned dialogues respectively for Pathu Thala which has been bankrolled by Jayantilal Gada and KE Gnanavelraja under the banners of Pen Studios and Studio Green.
The shooting of the film was delayed owing to multiple reasons because of which the makers postponed its release date. Narthan, who helmed the original Sandalwood version Mufti, was initially roped in to direct the Tamil version, but he walked away citing creative differences.
