"Manna aazhravanuku thaan la ella, manna allravanuku adhu illa," (Boundaries are for those who rule the land, not for those who mine the land (sand mining)) Silambarasan's voice over tells us in the sleek teaser of Pathu Thala.
Leading a sand mafia, Silambarasan plays AG Ravana (AGR), an antihero. While common people curse him and protest against his illegal sand mining practices, politicians and crooks gang up to kill him. Set in Kanyakumari, Silambarasan gets a rousing introduction towards the end of the teaser, with AR Rahman's powerful score. Gautham Vasudev Menon plays a politician and Gautham Karthik seems to essay the role of a rebel. Priya Bhavani Shankar too sports a politician look. Going by the teaser, the action entertainer promises a battle between characters of equal power. The film is slated to hit the screens on March 30.
Helmed by Obeli N Krishna, Pathu Thala co-stars Kalaiyarasan, Teejay Arunasalamm and Anu Sithara. It is produced by Studio Green & Pen Studios.
