NGK – Movie Review

Close on the heels of political films like LKG and NOTA comes NGK. More a mass film, it has very little traces of Selvaraghavan touch. The movie is about a youngster who wants to serve people ion his village. The political ways that he adopts lands him in troubles. This forms the crux of the film.

Directed by Selvaraghavan, it features Suriya, Rakul Preet, Sai Pallavi, Devraj, Ponvannan, Ilavarasu among others in the cast.

Suriya plays a adorable boy next-door and his ambition to serve people by entering politics makes up the story.

What’s more interesting is that Selvaraghavan after a lonmg gao joins hands with his favourite composer Yuvan Shankar Raja. The combo has not disappointed and especially the BGM.

Selvaraghavan has chosen the go the massy way. However his writing is vagie here. Seemingly borrowed from several movies on this genre, it picks up steam thanks to Suriya’s wonderful on-screen show. Selvaraghavan has chosen Srivilliputhur as backdrop for the movie.

Nandha Gopalan Kumaran called as NGK (Suriya) is an educated youth. He loves to do organic farming. His wife Mythili (Sai Pallavi) is encouraging him. Meanwhile when he tries to help others, he understands that he is made to run from pillar to post. Coming to conclusion that political participation would help him achieve his desire, NGK makes his political entry. He gets caught between ruling and opposition parties. There he encounters

Vanathi (Rakul). She is a professional PR hired by the party to help them face elections. Eventually he gets what he wants but with many sacrifice.

Suriya is the flesh and blood of the movie. Sai Pallavi and Rakul does a decent job. The erst have nothing much to do on screen.

Highlights
* Suriya’s performance
* Yuvan Shankar’s BGM

Drawbacks
* Weak storyline
* Draggy second half

Final line: Suriya’s one man show

Stars:  2/5
