Pattas stars Dhanush, Sneha, Mehreen Pirzada, Nassar and Naveen Chandra. Indianexpress.com's S Subhakeerthana in her review wrote, "Pattas is a star vehicle tailor-made for Dhanush. It gets utterly generic, though the laughs (in the first half) are great. You get action sequences, which Dhanush aces. He doesn’t look out-of-place even in a single scene. But there’s nothing more. Durai Senthilkumar simply wants to celebrate Dhanush—a “big” star and his heroism."
