Dhanush has always had a versatile style of his own. He nailed it in the role of a middle-class man in 'Raghuvaran B.Tech'. He impressed everyone as a local don in 'Maari'. He was awesome in a dual role in 'Dharma Yogi'. Dhanush is always at the forefront of moulding himself as per the character he is playing. This time, the talented actor is set to entertain the Telugu audience in a new kind of role.
'Pattas' (Tamil), directed by RS Durai Senthilkumar, is a Tamil-language martial arts film starring Dhanush as the lead man. Produced by Senthil Thyagarajan and Arjun Thyagarajan, this one has the 'Krishnagaadi Veera Prema Gaadha', 'Mahanubhavudu', 'Raja The Great', 'F2' and 'Entha Manchivaadavura' actress Mehreen as the female lead. Sneha is the other heroine. Naveen Chandra, who aced with his performance in 'Aravindha Sametha' and 'Evaru', has another key role in the movie. Released for Sankranthi, the film became a big hit in Tamil.
The Telugu version, titled 'Local Boy', is presented by Smt Jaganmohini on Vigneswara Entertainments. Produced by Ch Satish Kumar, the film's First Look, released recently, has received a great response. The producer has said that 'Local Boy' will be released in the first week of February.
Talking about the movie, the producer said, "The film has a martial arts backdrop and is doing tremendously in Tamil. Dhanush's performance has been hailed critically. He took special training to gain grip on martial arts. The film has familiar faces in its cast and so, you will see it as a straight Telugu movie. 'Dharma Yogi', the director's movie, was a hit in Telugu. We are hoping that 'Local Boy' will be a bigger hit".
