Padikathavan Movie Preview

So how seriously can you take Dhanush? Not quite seriously at all. His career graph shows that he has a unique talent in delivering real-life-relatable comedy. Thiruvilayadal Aarambham and Polladhavan are the successful proofs. He returns with Padikathavan, an out and out comic caper, vouched by him and director Suraj. And if you want more, Padikathavan has Vivek, whose role, according to the director, is serious but the entire characterization comic.
Padikathavan has all the elements of a potboiler – love at first sight with a rich girl challenged by parents, family sentiment, duets and gravity defying stunts. Suraj has a reputation in delivering laugh riot entertainers (his earlier films Marudamalai and Thalainagaram were best known for their comedy track than anything else).

Padikathavan also boasts of being the highest budget movie in Dhanush's career. Made at a break neck speed, the movie was over in 110 days. Highlights of the shoots being: the village festivities that are shot in a grandeur set laid out in 15 acres of land complete with 350 shops and junior artistes, numbering hundreds, from the surrounding villages brought in using 50 trucks. Sources who have had a sneak peek of the movie swear that the fight scenes are top notch.

The crew also visited the snow capped mountains of Switzerland for a dance number. Mani Sharma, after a short gap, has scored for Padikathavan the audio of which was released a couple of days ago.

Dhanush is paired up with the charming Punjabi lass Tamannah who made a few jaws drop with her fluency in Tamil at the audio release event. Now we really do not know if Suraj has made her dub for the movie, but we have a sneaky suspicion he has. So Dhanush's Padikathavan shows all the potential of a humble hit, same way Polladhavan pulled it off for Diwali years ago.

Produced by Vijaya productions, Padikathavan's distribution rights are owned by SUN Pictures.
