Running Time




Velaiyilla Pattathari , is an Indian Tamil coming-of-age comedy-drama film. The film begins with Katsingh (Dhanush) introducing himself as a graduate in Civil Engineering who is unemployed for 4 years and is just an idler in his house. He gets comically abused by his father (Samuthirakani) who feels that his son must get a job so as to survive and to feed his family. Raghuvaran is always compared to his younger brother, Karthik (Hrishikesh), who works in an IT company, earning a respectable salary. His mother, Bhuvana (Saranya Ponvannan) dotes on both of her sons and believes that Raghuvaran is talented and will get a job one day. Raghuvaran wants a job related to his field only and not work anywhere else (like call centres, software companies, banks etc). He is also unwilling to let go of his ethics as an engineer and is very straightforward in nature. He is also a member of a community group on Facebook called "VIP group", where he interacts with his members and friends about any job offerings.Wikipedia

Velaiyilla Pattathari Reviews



There are not dull moments in the movie and it is Dhanush's show all the way.


On the whole, if you can forget few flaws Vellai Illaa Pattadhari is a must watch movie.

A completely crowd pleasing silver-jubilee outing for Dhanush


Undoubtedly, Dhanush is the star of the movie and he once again delivers a splendid performance. His expressions, emotions and dialogues aptly portray angst, frustration and disappointment of his character. The rest of the star cast has also done a great job in supporting him. The music by Anirudh is also very good.

Surendhar MK


Velai Illa Pattadhari is a befitting 25th film for Dhanush. The film irresistibly succeeds in what it sets out to do, to entertain and it looks rightly enough with a wafer-thin plot like this.
