(2.5 / 5)  : Above Average 2.5 / 5
'Pattaalam' is entertaining. 
Maudgalyan    Mon, 30 Mar 2009
Pattaalam" features real schoolchildren as the main characters - something that had not been tried so far. And to their credit, all of them have acquitted themselves well and supported ably by the seasoned actress Nadiya playing the school principal 'Daisy' to perfection.

The storyline is on expected lines though.

Daisy abhors corporal punishment and uses subtle counselling methods to help groups of adolescent students at loggerheads to turn a new leaf after one of them attempts to commit suicide. 

Films centred on children rarely do well except in the exceptional cases like Aamir Khan's "Taare Zameen Par".

The commercial success quotient of the 2006 Malayalam release "Notebook" continues to be a controversy.

"Pattaalam" is somewhat weighed down by the avoidable long-winding sermons.

Else, Krishnaswamy's visuals are excellent, the musical foil by Jassi is apt and Rohan's endeavour to direct obviously mischievous children is commendable.

In all, it is a good outing during the ensuing school holidays.

2.5 stars
2.5 / 5 Pattalam - Movie review Pattalam - Movie review
Pattalam is an attempt to show the world of students in a different light. We have seen movies dealing with the similar subject, but debutant director Rohan Krishna has tried to look into the various dimensions of the teen age students.

The movie opens with a different note introducing the main characters through fun filled sequences. It shows two sets of boys locking horns for each and everything.

Daisy (Nadiya), the correspondent of the school makes them more responsible by her sensible and compassionate ways. Being a psychologist (Daisy manages a mental asylum alongside the school) she believes that students could be shaped well with love. Thanks to her sensitive and intelligent handling, the students get united and help the school win the athletic championship.
Rohan must be appreciated for not restoring to commercial gimmicks. It is easy to show the world of adolescent boys and girls in a sensual manner but Rohan has completely avoided it and instead he has focused on their emotions, camaraderie, and fights. But unfortunately, he hasn't avoided clich├ęs in depicting the problems and conflicts among the students. Each and every turning point in the second half is quite predictable. The romance-jealous-violence sequences fail to impress, as we have seen such things in many films.

Nadhiya has handled her role with grace while the youngsters have played their part well. Irfan, Hari and Balaji from 'Kana Kaanum Kalangal' team have done particularly well.

Jassie Gift's songs reflect the mood of the film aptly. The song 'Iskubera Raaraa' stands out. The background score is noteworthy in some sequences, especially the emotional ones. Cinematographer Krishnasamy has captured the mood of the film beautifully. Director Lingusamy has taken a bold step as a producer to fund a movie with a different plot. 

The movie could have been a more enjoyable fare had Rohan avoided the cliches.

Movie Review : Pattalam
Rating : 2 / 5 
Banner : Thirupathi Brothers
Cast : NadhiyaIrfanHariBalaji and Others
Music : Jassie Gift
Cinematography : Krishnasamy
Producer: Lingusamy
Director: Rohan Krshna
Released Date: March 27, 2009
Story:  pattalam
A different tale, the story is set on the backdrop of the Holy Bells school and this has two groups of four adolescent teenagers each. As usual, both groups have rivalries and in this process they tend to get indiscipline and even violent at times. At this point comes Daisy (Nadhiya) who is the correspondent of the school, she is also the incharge of a mental asylum and having noticed the group clashes, she realizes that the solution for this is through affection and not punishment. Soon, she begins to counsel the groups and introduces few innovative ways due to which the groups come together and becomes one. They also go on to win an athletic championship but then one incident happens that leaves a lasting impact on them. What is that incident and what happens after that forms the rest of the story
The director has attempted to come up with a fresh storyline unlike the regular teen flicks and though his presentation was good, the narrative fell back at few points. The dialogues were alright, the script was written but it lacked depth and the screenplay was executed accordingly. Music could have been better and even cinematography contributed its presence. Costumes were apt and the art department was neat. It was a show that belonged to Nadhiya all the way and she has carried it out well. The boys from the serial Kana Kanum Kalangal Irfan, Hari, Balaji have come out with good performances and were at ease on the silver screen. The others did their bit and made their presence felt.  
The film could have been a lot better if the script was crisper and focused on some entertaining elements. While the first half takes off with flying colors, it is the second half when things go off track and this causes the momentum to slow down and the audience losing interest. However, the makers must be appreciated for coming up with a rather different subject and also without any commercial involvement. The film will appeal to certain classes of audience but becoming a good grosser at the box office is a doubt. 

Bharatstudent Verdict: Good in parts, just okay.

The Times of India

Bhama Devi Ravi, TNN, Mar 28, 2009, 12.04AM ISTl
Still from Pattalam
Film: Pattalam 
Direction : Rohan Krishna 
Cast: Nadiya , Arun, Kripa 
Critic rating: Pattalam 

This one is for the younger generation and is typical Kollywood fare. The film follows the trend set by Boys, Chennai-28 and Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu, where fresh faces and a thin storyline depend on the presentation of situations by the director to work at the box office. And Pattalam may well turn out to be just what the teenagers ordered, as a post-exam stress buster if you will. The film is about the coming of age, backed by a new perspective. 

The faces in Pattalam are the sort you see when you travel on an MTC bus or an electric train, or even in the streets - children cycling their way to school. The faces are fresh and create an impact on the big screen. You could say there is a deliberate method here in moving away from all that s glamourous. It is an approach that has worked well in earlier films and passes muster here, too. 

Of course, you need to have a  fair amount of slapstick  to carry the audience with you, and the formula works well in the first half. The director manages to do so without labouring too much. The picturisation of the song Disai ettum thirumba vaikkum , had the audience laughing and applauding in unbridled joy, especially when  the four boys experience a series of adventurous moments as their cycle brakes fail. The frequent fight scenes between two sets of boys in the school compound is all so natural, it does not get tedious. 
The story is about a gang of eight students  of Std XI,  who are allowed their excesses by a tolerant school head Daisy (Nadia) in the hope that the carrot, and not the proverbial stick, will help them shape up into better human beings. The point is emphasised when a teacher who believes in corporal punishment is sacked by Daisy. 

In the second half, the attempted suicide by one of the eight, and the introduction of a sort of triangle between Sakkarai (Arun), Karthi (Irfan) and Sophie (Kripa) hit predictable terrain. 
However, the ending does not. Of course, there are a few scenes which remind of you of other films, but those are few and far between. The role of Daisy, who multitasks as teacher running a school and doctor in charge of a mental institution, might have been a tad tough on some, but Nadia does justice without going overboard. Pattalam – Tamil Movie Review

April 1st, 2009 | Tamil Movie Reviews | Tags: 
Star-casts: Nadhiya, Irfan, Guru, and many others.
Banner: Tirupathi Brothers
Production: Lingusamy
Direction: Rohan Krishna
Music: Jassie Gift
If not the film, Rohan Krishna could’ve better watched the trailer of Hindi film ‘Paathshaala’ that’s based on the same theme. The film is got to release somewhere in the mid of April and we’re sure Rohan would feel for not making a flick of that sort. Possibly, we can appreciate Rohan Krishna for adapting his own TV series ‘Kana Kaanum Kaalangal’ into silver screen. But merely, that doesn’t go for a perfect adaptation. A big question that rises in our minds is that can’t he distinguish between a TV Series and a feature film.
Plotline moves nothing different from the ‘Kana Kaanum’ version… Two gangs of youngsters playing pranks on each other, involving in clashes and more. Excuse us! There’s a love-dimensioned tale not so appealing as in ‘Panneer Pushpangal’. Nadhiya, a beautiful teacher as well psychiatrist enters into the campus. As you all know, she deals with their problems that actually most of us faced through our adolescent ages. (Oh My God!! Don’t mistake it be Selvaraghavan’s ‘Thulluvadho Ilamai’ where director revealed his inner most feeling of sexual context and idler thoughts). With attempts of attracting the family audiences, Rohan doesn’t include any of the aspects of obscenity or vulgarity.
Nadhiya doesn’t go for a good performance and we’re really wondering why she should pick such offers. All the times, she’s spotted getting out of the car, walking stylishly. Did Rohan think audiences will keep clapping for these sequences losing their senses. Maybe, before couple of decades back, this idea could’ve worked, but not now Rohan…
Jassie Gift doesn’t suit the space of Tamil music style… He’s always brimming the tunes with Mollywood taste. Better he can make workouts on shifting paradigms. Nothing else to get on about cinematography and editing…. Most of the youngsters as school students do overacting and nothing is appreciable. How can an elderly person’s (Jassie) voice suit for a young boy in school (in songs)… Really absurd!!!
Rohan don’t mistake us, if have made some hard-comments… Your story is excellent as it made high waves as a trendsetting series in history of Tamil Television. But why don’t you craft a gripping narration…
Anyhow, Better Luck Next time…
Bottom – Line: School without teachers
Verdict: Good but below average

Pattalam - Movie Review

Review by : Behindwoods review board
Starring: Nadiya, Arun, Kiruba, Sathya, Balaji, Vikas, Suresh, Hari, Vignesh, Guru, Irfan
Direction: Rohan Krishna 
Music: Jassie Gift 
Production: Tirupathi Brothers

Debutant director Rohan Krishna forays into silver screen after his successful stint in television as a director in teleserial Kana Kaanum Kaalangal which was a big hit with school going kids. Unfortunately his magic does not seem to work in Pattalam, produced and distributed by Lingusamy for Tirupathi Brothers.
The film is about two groups of four adolescents in a school, their characteristic and typical clashes, attractions


and vibrant bonhomie. Nadiya is their Correspondent cum Psychologist who disciplines them in her own way amidst much flak. There is no story as such and it is evident that Rohan Krishna has relied on Nadiya a lot.
Although the central knot of lending a long rope to youngsters for grooming them in the right direction is something zeitgeistical, the treatment sags and is short of verve. Characterization of Nadiya lacks strength in certain places when she is blind to the youngster’s follies and lets them go scot-free. Her explanation on this seems to be the normality of their misdemeanors as adolescents. OK. But does she take any remedial measures to correct them? No, poor children find their own way to mend themselves.
In an interschool competition, Nadiya’s school loses pathetically and the principal of another school attributes the failure to Nadiya’s lenience. Nadiya’s outburst on hearing this works wonders with the youngsters who bring home the coveted success. Some of her arguments in favor of adolescents are sensible. Rohan also tries to pep Pattalam with few love angles interspersed.
Performance wise, Nadiya has done her part well. Among the eight students, Irfan, Hari and Balaji are from Kana Kaanum Kaalangal team.
As regards technicians, they appear to have had an easy ride not taking the film too seriously at all. Music by Jassie Gift of ‘Four the people’ fame does not help the film. In the climax, the song that Irfan sings brings in a little excitement. 
Verdict: Exam written unprepared!
